May 1st will mark my 9th month post relaxer. I have a ton of new growth and was getting sick of the two textures, so I watched a ton of you tube videos and did my on senegalese twists and they have been in for about a month or so, but I want to take them out before my bday which is May 9th(mothers day). Depending on what my hair looks like I might cut off my relaxed ends, or not. I think my BC will be something spontaneous and not planned because if I plan it I know I will chicken out. As soon as I take these out I will post some pictures and Ill try to get some of my twists also...

HAPPY 9 MONTH TRANSITIONING!!! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Yay 9 months for me!!!!! My bday is next Sunday and I think I might cut a lot. I have a lot of natural hair that I'm loving, so you never know. I don't want to plan it I just want it to happen spontaneously

So today makes 9 months for me!! YAY!! woot! I honestly don't know if I'll BC on my 1 year or 18 months...??? I guess I'll listen to my hair and do it when she feels ready. I can honestly say that I am happy that I made the decision to transition b/c I have not once thought about hitting that beauty supply store for a perm. I have learned so much about my hair... hair period. HAPPY TRANSITIONING to all!! Very Happy

I feel like I should have more growth but maybe I do in other areas. This is the hair that was left out in my sew in.

I'm proud of the curls I do have though. : )

Does anyone else get single strand knots? I have been noticing that the strands that shed have have knots, so now I am wondering if I have these knots all over. That can not be good. I am already fighting breakage from the line of transition, I don't need single strand knots causing breakage too! Anyone have any suggestions or experience with this? confused

I reached my 9months post relaxer on Sept 24th dance
I'm having trouble finding cute styles that I can fix quick in the morning before my 9am classes (eeek)
but for now buns are my (boring) staple styles

@JMP82 We're in the same boat! I've been having more single strand knots in my shed hairs too and I have no idea how I got them or what to do about them

Single Strand Knots will now become your BFF! They never go away! Work on your detangle technique and start washing/cowashing in braids like on www.growafrohairlong.com That's is the only way I reduce the # of ssk I have.

Oh and I have the itchies lately, Mad

@JMP82.... OMG I have the same issue!!! I cut a few yesterday!!! They are sooooo annoying!!!

I know how I get so many... I am very low maintenence (nice way of saying lazy) and I do not wash/cowash regularly so I don't detangle often and I play in my hair while its tangled Sad !!!

U know how u know something is not good for u but u continue doing it... SHAME!!! Im working on it though...
