The New Year is almost here and what better way to ring in the new year than with a totally New You?! A big chop is a great way to commemorate a new year for you because transitioning from relaxed hair to natural hair is a truly liberating experience.

You know you can come here anytime to get all the information on how to wash, style, moisturize and care for your natural hair.

Big Chop Party!
When I big chopped back in 2010 I made it a night I would never forget. My cousin and I ordered Chinese food, we had drinks ready, the music was popping’ and we laid out all the big chop tools a girl could need. I big chopped my cousins hair first and then she big chopped me. We had so much fun and I encourage you to take the same approach. Even if you don’t have a friend who is going to big chop with you, find a friend who will get lit with you and do your celebratory big chop to natural hair for you. ChevysWay big chops her friend who has been transitioning from relaxed hair to natural hair for 10 months. I love that they did this together and that Shaneez had this type of support.
