Is the big chop 100% necessary?

I am a new natural hair member and my hair has already started going curly at the roots and at the ends but not in the middle. I am using the products soft and free, Africa's best leave in conditioner, coconut oil and Shea butter. I want to know if I still need to do the chop and if not  how long will it take for my hair to go curly all the way. It would also be good to know if I'll be able to braid my hair with only maybe 1-7 days in between to care for my hair?
