I just found these picture (February 2004) so I’m posting them.
Well ladies and gents, the moment we’ve all been waiting for (or at least I’ve been waiting for)…..drum roll please…my BIG CHOP!
I got fed up with my stupid braids so I came home and cut them out of my hair. This is me right before I commence the chopping.
They were amazingly easy to remove from my head, just cut them under the knot…
Voila! I proceeded to do this over my entire head.
Here’s what I looked like after I’d cut all the braids below the knots. I then slathered my head with a cheap bottle of conditioner from Walgreens (99 cents for a big bottle) and massaged my head and most of them began to fall out on their own. I did have to wriggle some out gently around the sides but I had no real problems at all.
Here’s what I looked like after I got out of the shower. Nice huh?
I went to the barber and had him pick it out and shape if for me on Friday.
