From the age of 9 years old I have been braiding, sewing, bonding and most recently “wigging it up . Not because I am incapable of growing my own strands of hair, but because the fashion trend have always been in favor of “hair” and “switching” it up. Let’s be real, we can all appreciate a good switch up, of course. I’ve spent years proving that point with the many hours I’ve spent on my own hair creating long small braids down to my back , perming, blow drying and flat ironing for that perfect wrap look, and even hours interlocking my very own locks. Yes I’ve even been locked for 2 1/2 years. Previous to that I was locked for a year before combining it out and starting over.
That leads me to my first bald chop! As I said I had my locks for 2 1/2 years and was ready for a “change“ . I actually had the intention of starting a new set of locks(for the third time). As I began to attempt combing out my locks as I had done with the first set, I grew very impatient. This set was significantly smaller than the first and I was over it after picking at the third lock for an hour . So what did I do? I buzzed my head!! I never felt sooo liberated in my life!
I’ve made many attempts to grow my hair back out over the past 6-12 months and have made it to 4 months and out comes the clippers. Besides the fact that I have become addicted to the easy routine that comes with having no hair, its been relieving for me medically as well, as I have suffered with migraines since I was a child and something as simple as the tugging of hair on my scalp is migraine triggers for me.
I don’t know if hair will see this scalp again. I do know that as of right now the freedom, ease, and lack of tension on my scalp way out ways hair for me. So I welcome to you, my new fashion accessorie… my BALD HEAD!!🤗
