With all of this newfound time on my hands, I'm just about ready to press the reset button on my curl pattern and this big chop-inspired thread on Twitter isn't making my scissor envy any better.

In a thread created by YouTuber, Chandler Alysse, hundreds of women flooded Twitter with the results from their big chop and tips that keep their curls poppin' and it was absolutely everything.
