Should I do my big chop now?

Right now I'm 6 months post relaxer and after seeing my curls I don't know if I should grow it out some more or just do the big chop once and for all. I am dying to find out my hair type as I believe I've got a different mix of curl patterns. Should I wait a bit more before I BC (if yes then how much months longer) or should i do my BC now and start my natural hair journey??

I think it varies for everyone. I transitioned for 1 year & 9 months. It was very difficult but I was used to wearing long hair and didn't know if I'd look good with shorter hair. You also have to keep in mind after you cut off the relaxed ends you will have shrinkage. If you're comfortable wearing short hair I say go for it!
