I did it! After seven years of wearing locs I'm back to loose naps! Posted here earlier this month about cutting my locs but I wasn't sure about how I would do it. Well after looking at a lot of pics and youtube videos I decided to cut them fo to a very short twa. The first time I did the big chop I never gave myself the chance to enjoy my twa as I was totally focused on length. Plus I got a very unfortunate hair cut and was anxious to grow it out. This time I wanted to enjoy my twa without having to worry about styling AT ALL. So I decided to get a very short twa that was truly wash and go. After an exhaustive search for a barber, I stumbled upon a stylist in the same plaza as my dentist who said she could achieve the look I wants with scissors--no clippers. I was skeptical but since she had a short natural I figured she must no what she was doing. So last Friday I cut my locs off myself and on Saturday she gave me a super cute twa. I love it!!! Best decision ever! In the morning my hair curls up from the shower and all I do is run a dab of Shea moisture curl enhancer through my curls and go. My hair is so short there's nothing else I have to do and I love it. No regrets. Thought that I might miss them but so far I don't miss them at all.
