I Get It From My Momma

Like I told you all, my mother finally decided to let me do her big chop. She was also so kind as to let me share her pictures with you all! I began by parting her already wet hair in 4 sections and rewetting with a spray bottle as necessary as I went along. I used an Herbal Essences in her hair to make it easier to tell between her natural and relaxed hair and snipped at the line of demarcation. I think she's a 3 blend (3a/3b/3c). Her hair goes straight overnight and has to be rewetted to get any curl back. Granted, we just chopped it and hair tends to act a little weird right after being chopped. We'll see though. I plan to keep you all updated! :) Here are the pictures!



Hello everyone! It's been over a month since my last update and I sincerely apologize. A lot has changed since my last update. Shortly after of course the holiday season began and then I was immediately thrown into finals week after Thanksgiving Break. This finals week, however, was a special one; my last one. That's right. I am a proud college graduate! I've earned my BA in Fine Arts at THEE Morgan State University! I'm all done now! Commencement won't be until spring but I am a proud 2010 grad. :) Now if that wasn't enough excitement, my family also moved into a new house the week after I moved out of my apartment at school. I've been packing and unpacking for about two weeks straight between my apartment, the old house and the new house. Things are finally beginning to settle down as we approach Christmas and the arrival of family. Still not done decorating but I will be posting pictures of my new room and bathroom. So as you can see, I've been a very busy bee but I have not forgotten about my blog! I still owe you all a length check from November 18th, I believe, and I actually did take the length check pictures that day so I'll post them and keep everything on schedule.

As you all know, my sister and I big chopped about 1 week apart from one another and are quickly approaching our 1 year curliversary in the next few months. Well what you DIDN'T know is that our mother had begun her transitioning process and is about 10 or 11 months in right now. Tonight or in the next few hours I will be doing her big chop and *crosses fingers* maybe she'll give me permission to post her pictures on here so that you all can see!

Well, I'll be back...just wanted to give you all a quick update and thank you for your patience and ask for just a bit more as my family and I get settled into our new home and our new lives. Until next time guys, Happy Healthy Hair Growing and enjoy your holidays!
