Big Chop Again
Care

When It’s Time for a Second Big Chop

Second Big Chop

There are many naturals out there who find that they need to have second time around with what is called the “big chop”. Here are signs that’s time to take a leap and start anew:

#1 You have severe hair damage

Unfortunately once your hair has been badly damaged the only thing you can do to repair it is to removed the damaged hair. This can be a result of a bad case of breakage, heat damage (leading to the permanent straightening of your strands) or chemical damage. Depending on the extent of the damage,  sometimes it calls for a big chop to get your hair back on track.

#2 Your hair just doesn’t have the same fullness it once had

Most likely you have a case of the splits. It may not call for you to go back to a TWA, but the shorter you go the healthier it will grow back in.

#3 Longer hair is just too much work

Long hair looks amazing, but longer hair also means more of a time investment. Whereas short natural hair is way easier maintenance wise. Wash day is no longer an all day event and styling doesn’t have to take hours of your time. Short hair may be the perfect option if you are a busy college student, workaholic or a new mommy that doesn’t have the luxury of time anymore.

#4 You just need change

Repost from @karmikakes21 So, a loc'd lady walks into a natural hair salon… Before you fire the "WHY?" & unsavory comments, take a moment & appreciate my magic & bad-assness……………………………………… Cool. To answer your question: 1. I wanted to do so. 2. It's time. As I'm going into my 30th year, I've gotten better at cutting things off. It's good for my growth. 3. My smile shines whether my hair is long or short. I feel sexy, lighter, refreshed & magical. Thank you to @naturalhollywood at Sabine's Natural Hair Salon in Brooklyn for cutting my locs, blessing my crown & sending me off in proper goddess fashion. ❤👑❤👑 #shortnaturalhairstyle #melaninpoppin #melaninonfleek #blackgirlsaremagic #twa #bigchop #kinksandcoils

8 Style Tips For Feeling Bold, Feminine and Fabulous With Your TWA

TWA Style Tips

Natural hair can be rocked in any style with any outfit, even at super short lengths. It takes courage to do the big chop. Many opt for a slow transition, while others are brave enough to just go for it. However, although you may have been courageous in your decision to do the big chop afterwards you may feel some uncertainty about your look. Here are style tips for embracing your boldness and feeling feminine while rocking a short look:

#1 Hair Accessories

Accessories are your new BFF’s. Hats, bandannas, headbands, and flowers are all fun styling options. The sky’s the limit!

#2 Collars

With short natural hair the back of your neck isn’t much covered. When you want a little more coverage, especially in the colder months, opt for pieces with a collar. For more versatility you can also wear a detachable collar that way you can still wear your favorite tops.

#3 Dye it

Dying your curls can really liven them up! Whether you go auburn or electric blue this is definitely the most fun way to turn your hair into your main statement accessory.

#4 Open shoulders and strapless looks

Sweetheart, tube or any of the shoulder bearing look flaunts your short hair and draws attention to your face. Choose dresses and tops that are bold, graphic and colorful.

#5 Jewelry

I’ve always found that a beautiful pair of earring or a bold statement necklace can really add an extra element to an outfit. It also draws attention up towards your face and your gorgeous afro!

#6 Black and sleeveless pieces

This is the most effortlessly fashionable way to dress up your twa. It doesn’t matter if you have a mohawk, asymmetric fro, coils or buzz cut you will always look fierce, feminine and elegant.

#7 Layered Outfits

Layering your clothes can give volume to the outfit making your teenie weenie afro stand out.

#8 CONFIDENCE!

This is very important. No matter what length our hair is some naturalistas ooze confidence while some need time to get used to it. Be patient. Over time you will grow to love it! Just remember one thing, you have to love your fabulous TWA before anyone else does.

5 Reasons Why Short Natural Hair is the Best!

why short natural hair is the bestDon’t underestimate the benefits of rocking a teeny weeny afro. While long natural hair is definitely gorgeous, it’s also more WORK. Which is all the more reason why you should enjoy this phase of journey. Here are 5 reasons why having short natural hair is the best!

#1 Wash your hair as often as you like

The longer your hair gets the more time consuming wash day will be. When your hair is at a shorter length you can choose to cleanse your hair every three days or so and suffer very little bothersome consequences.

#2 Tangles Are Manageable

You will find that you have little to no tangles. Any tangles you do experience you can be rid of in a snap!

#3 No need to worry about protective styling

Since tangling is not a big issue at this stage, you can wear your hair out free as often as you like. You can do styles like twists and cornrows for a style change, but they are not must to keep your hair healthy.

#4 Less Time Spent on Hair

From washing to styling, short natural hair is definitely less time consuming. Unless you plan on doing something a little bit more fancy with your hair, the general maintenance is a breeze compared to what’s down the road.

#5 It Just Looks Cool

Come on, tell me you don’t see the beauty in a gorgeous tapered cut! Some cuts are so awesome they have naturals with longer tresses just dying to do the big chop again.
