Do I have to do a big chop?

I want to start wearing my hair out , I stopped getting perms years ago and my hair fell out out and it grew back naturally. Still perm my edges for see ins but the middle is all natural. Edges are damaged .

Why do you think you have to big chop?
You don't have to big chop.You could always get a tapered cut.You would have the sides shaved and the rest can stay as it or trimmed for shape and volume.You could always transition slowly but since most of your hair is naturally.It would be easy to get a taper cut or big chop.Images below are not me but other naturalista with a big chop and tapered cut.Sorry for uses your images girls but you look good.
