talked about openly and processed carefully, the hair comes off and the woman feels free,” Fowler said of considering your motivation to run with the cut.
However, in many cases, Fowler revealed, “A woman may elect for a big chop if her hair has been damaged because addressing a devitalized mid-shaft or split ends along with rich new-growth on a daily basis can be frustrating.” She added, “Damage can be the result of aggressive combing, thermal straightening, or chemically altering for color or texture.”
Still, damage is not always the motivation. “Some women may just want to go from long hair to close and cropped. It really depends on the lady.”
Meanwhile, Fowler adds there are several general things to consider when wearing natural hair:
- Personal objectives
- Consulting with a licensed professional for guidance and support
- Developing a plan of action
- The amount of attachment one has to having hair that flows, hair that is long or hair period
In conclusion, Fowler revealed that, “Once you cut it off and release it, it takes at least a year to grow six inches!” Healthy length is the goal. Needless to say, patience is certainly key!
