SO THIS IS WHAT 80% NATURAL LOOKS LIKE.......


SO ON MAY 8TH 2010 I DID MY BIG CHOP! WHICH IN THE NATURAL HAIR COMMUNITY IS THE PROCESS OF CUTTING OUT LEFT OVER PERM, USUALLY AFTER YOU'VE TRANSITIONED FOR AWHILE. I HAVE BEEN TRANSITIONING FOR ABOUT A YEAR AND FIVE MONTHS. TO MY SURPRISE MY HAIR HADN'T GROWN AS LONG AS I EXPECTED.

WHEN I SAT IN THE CHAIR I ADMIT I WAS VERY HESITANT. THE BARBER LOOKED AT ME AND SAID "DON'T WORRY ABOUT LENGTH, HAVING NATURAL HAIR IS EMPOWERING, ITS ALL ABOUT CONFIDENCE." AFTER THAT HE TOOK THE CLIPPERS TO MY HAIR AND I WATCHED NERVOUSLY THROUGH A HAND HELD MIRROR.

BEFORE HE STARTED CUTTING MY HAIR A WOMAN WALKED IN AND SAID " WOO CHILD YOU HAVE A HEAD FULL OF HAIR!" I LAUGHED TO MYSELF NERVOUSLY KNOWING THAT WAS ABOUT TO CHANGE. HER HEAD TURNED SO FAST WHEN SHE HEARD THE CLIPPERS. HER EYES COULD HAVE POPPED OUT OF HER HEAD FROM THE CONFUSION AND SHOCK SHE WAS OBVIOUSLY GOING THROUGH, AS SHE WATCHED ME GET MY "HEAD FULL OF HAIR" CUT.

I PUT THE MIRROR DOWN FOR A SECOND TO GIVE HIM A CHANCE TO WORK HIS MAGIC. ACCORDING TO HIM HE HAD DONE IT OVER THREE HUNDRED TIMES. FOR WHAT FELT LIKE HOURS LATER, I PULLED THE MIRROR BACK UP ONLY TO SEE IT ALL GONE. I DIDN'T CRY, AND I ODDLY WASN'T SCARED. HE SAID THAT WAS A FIRST FOR HIM. I WAS JUST TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW I WAS GONNA WORK THE LOOK. MY LITTLE SISTER SAID I WAS POSING AND SMILING WITH MY EYES AS TYRA BANKS WOULD SAY.

I DID HAVE HIM STOP CUTTING BEFORE HE TOOK ALL THE PERM OUT. I WASN'T 100% COMFORTABLE WITH THE LENGTH THAT MY NATURAL HAIR WAS ACTUALLY AT. SO I HAVE ABOUT TWO TO THREE INCHES OF PERM LEFT. HENCE THE NAME OF THE POST, I'M 80% NATURAL NOW!

WHEN IT WAS OVER I THANKED HIM THREW ON A HEAD BAND AND HOODIE, AND RUSHED TO THE CLOSEST TARGET TO GET ANY MISS JESSIE'S PRODUCT TO BRING OUT MY CURLS. I BOUGHT MISS JESSIE'S QUICK CURLS AND LOVE THE RESULTS SO FAR. LATER ON THE DAY I PARTIED WITH THE FAM, TO CELERATE MOMMIES DAY! I LOVE THE JUMPER MY MOM WORE.

IS IT ME OR IS THAT AN ODD GHOSTLY ORB IN THE PIC OF ME AND MY MOM?

SO WHAT DO YOU DOLLS THINK OF THE NEW LOOK?

P.S MY SHOES WERE ONLY SEVEN BUCKS! AND MY FLORAL T-SHIRT WAS THREE BUCKS! GOSH I LOVE RUE21!
