What I’ve Learned About Myself After Doing A 3rd Big Chop

Glammzmore 3rd Big Chop

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve done a 3rd Big Chop. Yup. I cut off all of my hair. Again. I feel so light and carefree. Wash day is a breeze. It takes way less time for me to get ready. And I’ve been putting a little more effort into my makeup looks since I don’t have to spend too much time messing with my hair. If I could only learn how to put my work away and go to bed at a reasonable hour then I’d really be winning. Now I remember why I did a 2nd Big Chop last Summer. But I learned something about myself after the 3rd Big Chop… I really don’t give AF about no hair. I mean honestly and truly.

Sometimes we tell ourselves that we don’t care about something because we don’t have it. This was me as a child when I struggled with hair growth. But I really did care. I remember cutting bundles of tracks short to add to my hair because I had a struggle ponytail and didn’t want to get teased. You wouldn’t catch me without some type of weave because I didn’t want people to know that my hair was short. Now I’m bald by choice. This a full circle moment for me, and I couldn’t be more proud. From my late teens until now I’ve let my hair grow relatively long and cut it all off numerous times. Not because it was damaged either. But because I just grew tired of the hair and wanted a change. Now I will cut it all off in a hot minute because hair is not that important to me. Not anymore. This may not seem like a big deal to some but it is to me.

Have you guys done the big chop more than once? If not, would you do it again?

When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.

    Yes I would do it all over again. Actually I did my third chop this year. When I decided to do my first big chop. I was very nervous. I came across one of your you tube video in 2016. It inspired me to not fear and go ahead with the big chop. I got so much possible feedback. People were telling me I should have done it sooner. A month later I was admitted to the hospital. The doctors told me my heart was failing. In 2018 I’m doing awesome mentally and physically. Your video inspired me to go ahead with the big chop. Doing this made it easy for me and my awesome mom with my daily care. Until I was able to gain strength and get back to my normal rountines. Having a twa have been a blessing in my life. Not saying I haven’t face any issues. But the overall experience have been great..Now I don’t feel that enthusiastic about wigs or weaves. Yes I would do it in a heartbeat💓😆

    Continue to do you and stay blessed😇

      Firstly, I hope that all is well with your health. Sending love & light. I’m glad I could inspire you to fearlessly rock your TWA. I want my sisters to be comfortable in the skin that they’re in, regardless of how they decide to wear their hair. You stay blessed as well ❤️
