My African Hair Cut


I cut my hair low! The type of low that makes you look like a boy.

Now my mom does not know about this, she might pass out and then get revived, then pass out again when she comes to visit this summer but I can handle that. I sure can.

So, why did I go for the big chop like my African sisters call it?

I wanted to! 

While I have some other alibi, such as winter-beaten hair, expensively useless salons, and more, I have always wanted the look of short rough natural African curly hair and now that it is in vogue, am I rocking it? I bet I am!! 

Thanks to whoever started the natural African hair vogue! 

I have mastered the art of maintaining a very low haircut from the hundreds of YouTube postings by my African natural hair proponents. 

From using eco-styling gel to using a piece of rough cloth to roughen my hair and give that daring and contemporary look!!Thanks, ladies!

I have also learned a thing or two about self-confidence and carriage. I mean, you must be self-confident and carry yourself tall to wear short natural African hair in the midst of both naturally and artificially enhanced long hair. I'm quite obvious now. Not that I mind.

The moral of my big chop natural African hair story? Love yourself, be confident in who you are, love your hair and enjoy it anyhow you like it.
