I always wished I had the confidence to rock a length 1 inch or less each time I big chopped. There is something so powerful and sexy about a woman with super short hair, but I was definitely not one of them. Hair was my comfort zone, which is why I transitioned each time with extensions or weaves. If you are not as confident I would recommend at least waiting 6-8 months until the big chop, which equals about 3-4 inches. This amount gives you room to play safely with extensions and weaves, offering styling options to prevent you from returning to the chemically altered alternative or provide more patience until you achieve the length you desire.
