I did not do a BIG chop (i think this means pixie haircut), but I did do a MEDIUM chop (went for a neck-length short bob). I wanted to cut off most of the damaged ends that I could handle without freaking-out. Took 5 or 6 inches off - yikes! So now I am left with about 75% 3A curls & about 25% straight dead ends. For 2 weeks, i was doing well following Lorriane Massey's Curly Girl method. But then I couldn't help but feel ugly with my straight ends, so I curled them on low heat (#15 on an Jilberee 1/2 iron that can heat up to #30). Am i doing ok so far? Or am I never going to escape the curling iron?! Help! Would love some honest feedback as I am dedicated to having beautiful wash & go curly hair eventually!!! Help me break away from the shackles of the damn curling iron!!!
