what is the 'big chop?

by swimmie5010 (3b)   category Big Chop

I've seen many references to something called the big chop. What is it? My hair has been getting pretty long and I swim so the ends typically get dry and split. I have 3b hair (i think) and was interested in getting it cut short. I haven't gotten any length taken off for 6 years now (except for cutting the dead ends off periodically) I had a horrible cut which made my hair fluff out 4 inches to the side. It was around chin length so im nervous bout getting a short cut.

"Big chop" refers to cutting off the relaxed ends of a person's hair, resulting in a fairly short hairstyle. It's usually used by the kinkier hair types who are transitioning from relaxed or permed hair to natural hair.
