About This Journey
Hello World! My name is Tina.
Here's a little background as to how I got here. In 2012 I decided to do a big chop. A big chop is when you cut off all the damaged or relaxed hair, leaving just your natural hair. I had about 4 inches of hair left afterward. I had no idea of the journey I was about to embark upon. I used scissors instead of shears, smh. I remember watching YouTube videos and saying to myself, Honey! Cut off all these thin, scrawny braids. The ladies would cut off their damaged hair, and their hair would blossom, and that's what happened to me.
My hair was so unhealthy when I think back on it. It was March 8, 2012; I shampooed and conditioned my hair, got the scissors and looked for straight hair pieces, and started cutting. After the first cut, which was in the front of my head, I was shocked and proud at the same time. I thought, OK, I'm actually doing this. The fear, in the beginning, was all in my mind; I wasn't wearing my hair out anyway, I always wore weaves and wigs, so I had nothing to lose. I cut off all the relaxed hair and wore crochets, weaves & wigs until I grew it out. I don't wear them as much as I used to, but I will wear them sometimes to protect my hair or switch up a look. The image you see is after a big chop and a mini chop. I stopped going to the salons as they were burning my hair and making me start over. So, I took my hair into my own hands, and created my own hair oil that stimulates the scalp, adds nutrients, and gives our hair the moisture that it craves. Before and after pics are available.
Don't be afraid of the journey. It has been a great one.
