Happy 2018! My name is Yolanda. I am a proud wife and mother of two boys. I live near Houston, TX. I am a HRIS analyst by day and hair junkie by night. I have been subscribed to Going-Natural.com since February 24, 2008 (I still have my email from this date with my login credentials). Back then, there were no YouTube videos, Instagram or Pinterest.
Three years ago–40 months to be more exact–I made the decision to cut off more than a decade’s worth of locs to continue a loose natural hair journey that I had begun back in 1993. I BCed or again to be more accurate, if you have locs, it’s called a Loc Chop. And once the deed was done, I had an “Oh crap?!” moment. Actually it’s fair to say that it’s been more than a moment since all of these months later, I still wonder was cutting off all of my hair the right decision for me at that time?
