To chop or not to chop? That is the question! Spring is here and while we all love our box braids, cornrows and enhanced afro’s the maintenance can be a bit overwhelming at times. The great news… although for many of us, natural hair has always been “in” it is now a “movement.”

From many Black celebrities like Tyra Banks to some of the biggest beauty bloggers across the web, African women are putting down the flat irons and picking up a pair of scissors. That’s right, they’re chopping off what some have called their struggle mane in the name of achieving a healthy hair journey. After all, it’s health over length… right ladies?

Although it has been several years since I last did the big chop, the below celebs definitely played a major role in my decision to go all the way. For 5 celebrities who inspire us to go natural, scroll below. Have you recently done the big chop? Share your experience in the comment section below! – Ruu [email protected]
