That looks like that is going to be my only option. My little sis already offered to help me cut it.

Ok, I just kidding on that note (hopefully), but seriously, I need to do something because I don't want to get blow-outs all the time.

I'm praying too! She knows I'm a natural beauty...I just think she just don't want 21 years of her best work of hair to be cut off. She actually a little shocked that I'm so adamant to BCing...she thought the whole transition was just an artistic expression of who I am, but I think its scaring her now because she realizing that I'm not doing this as a fad, but for life.

I'm planning to cut my hair off in a couple of weeks, my dad I know is going to have a fit (he's always thought he could control what I do with my hair, which just wasn't the case even when he was paying for the appointments ~lol~), my mom doesn't think I should cut it, but I think they both know that it's my hair so I don't really care what they think, and thanks to the economy I'm stuck at home right now too. LOL, so they need to realize that you aren't trying to be disrespectful, but you have to do what's best for you and your hair. They'll get over it, it's not like hair doesn't grow back Smile Good luck!

So here are the results of the blow-out:



After using a blow dryer, hood dryer and a hot comb, my hair came out silky smooth. I'm praying that Lucy is still under there somewhere. Yet, Mama surprised me by cutting off 4 inches (can you tell?) so that it will be easier for my transition. The majority of my color is out now so back to dark brown we go. The funny thing about Mama doing my hair is that one of her clients was talking about how nice I would look with my hair cut short and Mama was giving her the side eye the entire time. The client did not care one bit, lol. Now, I feel like I should be a news anchor or something, lol! At least, this hairstyle won't last....its already getting hot outside.

I'm nervous for you with your mom using the hot comb. I sure hope Lucy is under there somewhere too.

Yeah, I was nervous too. I was like "Oh no, not the hot comb...what happen to the flat-iron?!" Thankfully, Mom used a heat protectant on my hair (FHI hot sauce) so hopefully, Lucy will be back....hopefully.

I agree with Muz. If you are employed and an adult you can take 15 bucks go to the nearest Barber shop and get it cut. It will be tooo late then for anyone to say anything. She sounds like my mother. She is a beautician and before she went natural she was a handful. I went 11 months with out a perm and she felt like I represented her because she is a beautician in a small town. It took 4 bottles of relaxer to straighten my hair after that. THEN she was mad cause she used up all her products for free. Lucy will be back, she is stronger than that to let a blow dryer, sit down dryer, and hot comb hold her down.... (I wouldn't suggest it be done again though LOL!!)..

Your family will be shocked if you cut your hair but they will get over it. Trust it is just hair when it all boils down to it. Nothing wrong wit you wanting to be true to you and rock

Yeah, I know I could have gone to someone else to cut my hair, but I guess when you grew up in a salon with family members who worked there, it's natural for me to go to them for a hairstyle because they know what's best for my hair. So I just assumed they would be OK about doing a BC. It's alright though cuz my lil sis is locked and loaded and ready to go....I just need to sweat this hairstyle and look for some cute headbands in the mean time.

LMAO!! Good plan!! You can find real cute headbands and rock it when you BC. I understand because my mom is a beautician, she does have a jealous streak in her though. I went and got extensions and she was like oh... You over paid... I had to explain I have never seen her do this so till she can show me otherwise I paid the right price. But I was not under her roof at that time either.

I am getting excited for you to BC. DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! ***AND POST PIC ASAP*** when you do.

I been wantin to cut my hair since 12 and she aint never let me, i was lucky enuff to get bangs at 15 but once i turned 18...i went ALL OUT n rocked my short halle berry cut.

Anything after 18, paying bills with a job is grown in my book. but uh...yea good luck wit ur parents, lol.

My hair is reverting little by little so that means Lucy is still alive and kicking. One of my friends' mom just self-BCed and she looks so nice.....sigh.

The blowout looked great! But I'll be happy to see Lucy again. I'm terrified of heat damage.

I'm excited about your BC.

Yay! Congrats! Welcome to the curly side.

I'd say even if she doesn't like your hair, your mom supported you by cutting it for you. Worse case scenario, she could have refused. I'm confident that she'll eventually come around.

Thanks everyone! I think Mama took it harder than everyone else in my family. The whole time she was cutting my hair she was like, "Your father is going to be so upset"/"Your dad is going to be so mad"/"Oh my god, it's going to be so short"/"Are you sure you want to do this"/"What if I just leave the front part relaxed and cut the rest...it'll look so cute"/"Sigh"/"I cut off all the relaxer, why is your hair still straight"/"You're going to regret this". Once I cowash my hair, the straight hair turned to popping curls. The funny thing is that when I showed my dad, he actually liked it (he didn't even know I was going natural!), lol. I think Mama went through different phases of grief over my hair because she was a lil shocked/happy to see curls, but then she became moody with everybody after cutting my hair and she kept looking at my hair like she hated it. And she went to sleep right after that which is kinda weird because it wasn't really late. Then when I woke up this morning, she liked it...lol. So go figure.
