1 Year Lock Anniversary and the Big Chop

    I celebrated my first year with locks by cutting off the rest of my relaxer.  In the Sisterlock community, this is called the Big Chop (BC).  I did not really shape my hair (although previous cuts to shape my former style may have contributed to its current shape). This is the way my locks grew due to the shape of the cut with the relaxer. I do not regret starting with a relaxer, but I am excited to actually begin this new phase. I started by just cutting off the buds that were to big due to bunching. Then I decided to cut all the relaxer off the back.  Naturally, this meant I had to re-angle the sides.  By the time I was done, I only had relaxer from the ears forward.  When no one even noticed that I cut my hair (not even my kids), I decided that it was time for the big chop.  My consultant was very pleased with the results. These photos are immediately after having my hair washed and retightened. Here are the pictures.....
