Considering the Big Chop?

Back to Top

If it’s your first time making the big chop, having a hard time adjusting to it will be normal. A simple yet effective way to remedy this is two options.............

1. You can have your desired hair style created into a quick weave created by your stylists


2. Purchase a Pre-styled wig similar to the style you want, and rock this for a while before making the actual Chop.

The above suggestions is the most accurate way to give you an idea as to rather or not you like a particular style against your face. 

Maintenance Tips and Sleeping............

Short black hairstyles, require some women to get their hair re-done as often as once per week, but average is every two weeks, with a Relaxer (perm) every 6-8 weeks. 

Below are some tried and tested maintenance tips to maintain your short tresses in between your next appointment. 

  • Choose your hats aligned with silk when buying them  
  • Avoid wool scarves as it may cause pinching at the nape 
  • Use neck strips when wrapping your hair before sitting under the dryer. Doing this prevents your hair from waving up

Prevent Creasing caused by tying your hair down with scarves. Creases will come with the price of having short hair.  

Consider three of these Tried and Tested solutions..............

  1. Wrap hair before bed with either a stocking cap(wig cap). Next, tie it down again with a satin scarf over the stocking cap
  2. Wrap the back of your head with wrapping strips made out of mesh, and go around it again tying it down with a silk scarf on top
  3. Wrap hair at night with the mesh "Velcro Wrap"  to avoid flat irioning your hair every morning. Its optional, to tie a scarf over top of this as well
