15 Perfect Instagram Captions For Your Big Chop Reveal Photo

For African-American women, opting out of hair straightening perms or “going natural” is often a huge step. The moment isn't just about not wanting to relax your hair anymore.

Many black women are making a conscious decision to boldly sport their natural hair, which is often the source of much political conversation and unfortunately, discrimination.

To go natural is to resist mainstream beauty standards, and uplift the natural hair textures that are indigenous to the African-American race.

Despite all of the flack black women can receive for their hair, going natural is a decision that deserves celebration.

Not all women choose to reveal their natural hair right after their big chop, but if you do decide to debut your new short ‘do on Instagram, then here are a few cute quotes by mostly unknown authors that will ensure you have the perfect post.
