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 start over with your hair by cutting off all of 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. I remember watching YouTube videos and saying to myself, Honey! cut off all of 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 got the scissors and looked for the straight pieces of hair, and start cutting. After the first cut; which was in the front of my head, I was actually shocked and proud at the same time. I thought OK, I'm actually doing this. The fear, in the beginning, is all in our minds; I wasn't wearing my hair out anyway, I always wore weaves and wigs so I really had nothing to lose. I cut off all of the relaxed hair and wore crochets, weaves & wigs until I grew it out. I don't wear them as much as I use to but I will wear them sometimes to protect my hair or even to 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. I may blow dry my hair 2 to 3 times a year.
