These Beauties Revealed Their Big Chop Results & Now We’re Ready To Trim Our Tresses, Too


Times like this, I wish hair salons provided Life Alert because my curls have fallen and they can't get up.

After months of relentless heat and chemical processing, my tresses are tired and seem to have given up the good fight. 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. Chandler, who experienced hella growth since her big chop, said that implementing apple cider vinegar, rice water, Jamaican black castor oil, and products from Bella Curls have allowed her curls to return with a vengeance.

Along with Chandler, other queens dropped their tips for regrowth and maintenance after their big chop and we have all the details.
