Default Anyone planning on doing the Big Chop in 2011

Hey ladies,

Is anyone planning on doing their BC in the new year? I'm almost fully 3 months post relaxer and I have about 1-2 inches of new growth. I plan on cutting off all my relaxed ends in March/April. I want to transition for about 6-8 months. If I'm
not at my desired length by March/April, then I will do BC at the end of May. So far every 2 weeks I clip my ends to prevent tangled and
single knots in my hair.

Sorry everyone I meant to title this topic as "2012" instead of 2011 please ignore the year in the headline

I plan on doing the BC in June '12 cuz that will make me a full year w/o a relaxer. BUT idk if that will be necessary. Hopefully my hair will already be fully natural because my hair length is at my chin. My hair grows fast so by the 9th or 10th month (March/April) of my transition I should have a crazy amount of new growth.

If I like what I see and I don't mind the 2 textures then I'll keep transitioning. If I get tired or get that gut feeling that it's the right timing before my BC time comes then I'll do it. But the main date is June 1st, 2012.

I big chopped my hair two months ago I wanna go shorter but I've gotten chubby so It'll look ugly.I might do it anyway because I look like a freak because I still have have relaxed tips.I dont regret it though.and It feel good to be rid off all that extra weight on my head. If you do you should defiantly put up a picture.

I cut/trim my hair a lot it's jaw length now so hopefully in 6-8 months I should have about 4-5 or more inches of new growth. Right now I have about 1-2 inches mostly 2. If I don't have enough growth or I'm not at my desired length I'll BC in May. Congrats to everyone who's planning on being relaxer free in thee new year!

Hello, I'm planing to BC at the end of June, which is my one year mark. But the other day I was thinking about it, and I could possibly hold off till as long as possible. It's all depending on how annoying the relaxed ends :P I have shoulder length hair and I'm not planning on cutting it anymore, cus I find the longer the hair the easier it is to style. I'm super excited though c:

I'm doing mine today. My hair isn't relaxed but it's really unhealthy, so I'm starting over. & I'm following an Ayurvedic routine

I am such a new transitioner that I'm not sure what my BC goal is. I have shoulder length hair now and I love it. So I really want my new growth to be long enough to pull into up dos before I BC. That probably won't be until the end of 2012 or even going into 2013. But who knows? I may do it before that -- just really depends on my growth. I don't want to lose my length!!

I think I'm going to BC the very last day of 2012 or the very first day, so I'll have transitioned for 1 year and 5 months.

I planned on the BC Feb 28th with will be 24 months. However, I think Im going to BC on 1/1/12. Still trying to figure it out. I straightened my hair and got it cut into layers to get rid of some of the relaxed hair. Ill be washing it next week and posting some videos on my youtubechannel. Ill make a post here as well to see how much I may have to chop off.
