Chop Chronicles #9: Natural Hair Anniversary!

July 28, 2014 Jasemine Denise Photography 2 min read 4 Comments

On July 22nd, 2014 I shaved my head completely. Each month from then until now, I’ve posted a monthly blog talking about my journey.  For my natural hair anniversary I decided that instead of giving you guys a long drawn out blog crying about how great of a year it’s been (cutting my hair, falling in love, quitting my dead end job, and enrolling in college) or how fun it was rocking different styles (the afro, the headwrap, the mohawk, the shaved head)

 

If I Can Give Anyone Any Advice about their big chop…

 

  • Don’t cry. When I shaved my head, I cried my eyes out like my life was ruined. Things had fallen apart and I was beyond unhappy with myself, but when it was all said and done and I was completely down to nothing.. I rebuilt from it and my hair grew back as if it’d never left. That being said:
  • Don’t look at this as if it is a loss but a gain. The journey is one that is filled with twists, turns, hard lessons, and self love. This is going to excite you even if you can’t see it the moment you embark.
  • Pay attention to your hair. I spent a lot of time nurturing my hair and seeing what it needed. From bald head, to fro, to mohawk, I did what was best for it when it came to protective styling, laying off the heat, etc.
  • Your hair is your crown. No matter how shiny or bejeweled it is, it speaks for itself. It says, I am a queen. Don’t ever forget that.

Now, to Unveil the big surprise..

I dyed my hair a new color. I had been saying I wanted this hair color for years but there was so much stopping me. (One time, I’d tried and my hair had turned silver). Another reason was because everyone got me confused with Vex, my love. Her hair is far longer than mine and she’s got hip dermals.

Yet.. To another year of natural hair, change, and the stunning revelation that when you take care of your hair it has the potential to be everything you could ever want it to be..

I travel as a photographer, I write novels , and I fan girl a lot. I have an unnecessary attachment to all things 80s punk, 90s hip hop, and girl power. I typically write in the same tone that I talk in so you should probably be prepared for that. Just saying.
