The Big Chop

First thoughts:
I look like Hawk from "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century."
I look like Miss Jeannette.

I look like my mother.
Maybe if I wear a lot of jewelry I'll look more like a runway model...

Most black women have Issues around their hair. Is it too curly (um, too nappy)? Not curly enough? How can I get it to grow longer? How much can I do to it before it falls out in clumps? What kind of activities can I engage in without sweating so much that it goes back (to its natural curl pattern)? None?

So you see why I never thought I'd be the type of person to say to my hairdresser, "Oh, just cut it all off." Oh no. It takes many months for it to grow even a couple of inches.

Eventually, I'd like to have a twist out hairstyle, like my hairstylist used to wear.
Until then.
