I’m enjoying this Big Chop. The benefit of starting my day tress free is priceless. There’s never a bad hair day and I’m always on time. For me, removing hair has also meant removing my hang-ups about my hair— It’s not big enough… It’s not curly enough… It’s not as dense as I would like… It’s dry. I had every hair issue, all of which prevented me from donning my own natural coiffures. I relied heavily on protective styling. These factors were key in my decision to go Caesar with it. What’s pressing is the fact that there are days when I miss my previous hair length and all the versatility it offered, extensions, weaves and all. On days like today, I am suffering big chop blues… I thrifted this beautiful vintage dress, it did wonders for my mood. Although I was blue, I was naturally fresh y’all…

Naturally Fresh Boulevard does exist and not only in my mind. I was driving on the South Side, coming from having my hair braided, waist-length cornrows to be exact and they were crispy! I’m sure most can identify with that Superfly energy that creeps into your psyche, after having your hair done… So there i was, stopped at a traffic light facing a street called, Naturally Fresh Blvd. Without thinking, I found myself peeking in the rear view mirror at my newly sculpted hairdo, checking my blush, lipstick. I was feeling so fresh and so clean and so naturally haute. I was caught up in the moment of feeling naturally fresh on Naturally Fresh Blvd…and then the horns started blowing. I look up and there’s a green light looking back at me…and here we are. Naturally Fresh Blvd, is green-lighted as a Style blog showcasing natural hair and fresh ensembles by yours truly…Stay tuned!
