While the thought of rocking free-flowing, ultra-curly natural hair sounds exciting, making the "Big Chop" can be a bit intimidating for many new naturals. Letting go of your relaxed ends is a major step, but more and more women are taking the plunge and looking just as fabulous as ever.
Songstress Goapele stepped out at the premiere of Baggage Claim flaunting a megawatt smile and her new natural crop. "My hair wasn’t as healthy when I flat-ironed it all the time. I wanted it to be back to a state where it felt like it was thriving. I think that my hair’s happiest natural so I just cut it off recently," said Goapele.
