The big chop

Posted on

We’re just gonna dive straight into today’s ‘hot topic’ (*read this in Wendy Wiliams’voice) Growing up for the past 24 years, I’ve always had naturally healthy long hair. Some friends jokingly told me it was literally goals. Got to thank the good genes and the good Lord.

The thing with major hair change decisions is someone doesn’t just wake up one morning and does a 360 on their hair. Chopping off my hair is an idea that’s been popping in my head since the beginning of the year. And I’ve always been my hair, unashamedly. Let’s face it, every girl loves their hair, right? You always wanna have it poppin’. Before my hair went down (*insert happy sad emoji here), I consulted from family and friends, just to get unbiased opinions. That made me realize how subjective everyone’s opinion is. That being said, at the end of the day following your own instincts (because you can never please everyone) is always wise.

We exist in a society that holds women’s beauty by very specific parameters. We won’t even get into the physique aspect today. To contextualize this, most people still believe that what makes a woman beautiful and feminine is how long and glossy her hair is. This explains why ladies are willing to go to any lengths to achieve that. Spending a good chunk of their earnings on products or procedures that promise hair “prosperity”. I mean why not?

So to address the ‘elephant’ in the room: why did I chop off my hair? Firstly, because I wanted to. LOL. Secondly, it comes a point in life where you just want to break free from the norms. I got to that point. Purposing to cut my hair made me realise the difference between who you are, and what you want to be, is just a decision away. And at times you really don’t need anyone’s approval to make smart choices in life.

Do I miss my long hair? To be honest, not yet. Will, I ever grow back my hair? Who knows? We’ll just have to give it time, aye? But where I stand right now, the big chop has been the best decision I have ever made. Because I don’t have to try so hard to fit in, my self-love is sufficient. Can I get an amen?

Till next time.

Thanks for keeping up with the shenanigans.

Wamuhu.
