    I’m digging my big fluffy afro as much as she is digging her TWA and at the end of the day it should be about you like and feel good in.

    I love it, I’ve been wearing a half wig while I decide the next chapter for my hair. I love short hair, but I’ve put on weight and I’m afraid my head may look too small with my larger body. I may just close my eyes and go for it! Thank you for the inspiration. It’s not about anyone else. Just me.

    My hair was APL stretched and at the time I felt I needed a change. My nape area grows so fast and the top was growing slow so I had it shaped up to the nape in May of this year. I felt my hair was a little limp and not thick the longer it grew. Yes, i did regret cutting it a few weeks later, but it’s growing back and I’m loving the volume.

    You are right I to have had long hair all my life. I decided twice to big chop the 1st time Feb.2013 to cut off my permed hair to go natural. The next big chop was just last week and I’m loving it. I had been told never cut my hair by my older family members and that stuck with me for years. But now I’m loving every minute of this twa and its all about what I want.

    It’s true, you know. Most of these natural hair blogs (not necessarily this one in particular) are all about “hair length goals” or “length retention” or “how to grow your natural 4c hair to ankle length”, but what about some of us naturalistas that prefer our hair to be, um, eyebrow length? Scalp length? Is there no room for articles for us?
