I hear so many new-to-natural Naturalistas express their frustrations with the first year post big chop styling options. I personally have never big chopped but I can still relate since I too had the same impulse to run out and grab a box of creamy crack around month five of my transition. Don't fret, we all have had our fair share of this anxiety. I love natural hair, not just mine but ALL natural hair. I cringe when I have friends or even read and watch frustrated naturals I don't personally know give up and return or threaten to return to chemically treated hair. You have come too far, even if you are just 2 months post big chopping...YOU CUT IT ALL OFF, that's coming a long way, not just esthetically but emotionally to be able to make such a drastic change in your appearance. This is a S/O to every Sista out there who is struggling with first year jitters, keep the faith...your journey has just begun.
Adding color can also cure the TWA blues. It makes for a nice pick me up and change in appearance.
Feather earrings are HOTT!
Flowers with bobby pins make great additons to a TWA!
Its important to remember the best part of going natural lies your journey not just the destination. Enjoy your journey, and in so you will enjoy the transition to natural hair. Soon you will be looking this (big smile):
