Why did I big chop? I big chopped because I was tired of conforming to what others thought was beautiful! I wanted to see my hair, my natural hair, in it’s natural state, to make the decision on my own if I thought my hair was beautiful! I’ve always been complimented on my long straightened hair...whether it was permed or unknowingly while I was transitioning (I fell into my transition) because my stylist at the time suggested that I stop with perms (because I didn’t “need” one...I don’t know if those were her exact words because that was 2014 but I knew what she was saying) It came from a good/genuine place of wanting my hair healthy but over the years I wondered, why does anyone “need” a perm? My perms burned EVERYTIME, and that can’t be good, right? Do we “need” a perm? Even the kinkiest natural doesn’t need a perm, right?!?! I find all hair to be beautiful! I mean I’m in awe of what us as naturals can do to our hair! It’s a unique masterpiece that God made just for us, to enjoy and embrace in totality! It really is magical...hence the term Black Girl Magic! Our hair can do SOOOO many things, NATURALLY!!!...it gives the illusion of being short while actually being long. We can twist it, braid it, fluff it out in a fro, we can even make the curliest hair look kinky and make the kinkiest hair look curly with the right products or a braid/twist out! Natural hair is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! It’s versatile and it’s truly a masterpiece! I went against my mom at 15 and put a perm in my hair (by a stylist of course) but that was probably one of the most silliest things I’ve done! Subconsciously caring about what society thought of my hair and wanting my hair to be “easier” to manage. Natural hair can be as easy as you make it. It takes patience but, it’s worth it! So glad to be back! 1 year natural and many more to come... @alikaynaturals #goodhairday #youtubeblack #naturalwoman #mynaturalhairisdope #transitioninghair #kinkyhair #hair #blackgirlmagic #naturalhair #blackyoutuber #coilyhair #curlygirl #curlyhair #naturalista #alikaybigchop #naturalwomen #haircrush #bigchop #blackbloggers
When your bones are tired of carrying everyone else’s problems, and when your lungs are tired of breathing life into other people, return back home to yourself for a while. shift your energy back inwards. reunite with peace again.
Someone I was dating once criticized the fact that I didn't like sports. Needless to say we didn't work out, but all football season when I see a girl rocking football apparel, I've been feeling inadequate...isn't that some shit. I don't know what's worse, the fact that any guy would think it's a turn off if a girl doesn't like sports or that I care that not liking sports is a deal breaker because obviously he's not the one for me 🤔
Really had my heart set on waking up rich today .....
