Almost There

Post by DeM on 13th February 2011, 4:27 am

I just wanted to introduce myself. This is my second turn at being natural. I realize that I relaxed my hair for the wrong reasons and now I am giving it another go. I am transitioning and am scheduled to do the big chop in a couple of weeks. I am nervous about my hair being so short (previously I transitioned with braids) but I suppose that is common to most ladies who big chop.

I am committed to this and this time I want to work harder at keeping my hair healthy. Hopefully I find a lot of tips and advice here.

DeM - A BIG WELCOME! Just a thought- you mentioned you are nervous about hair so short. Have you BC'd? If not, remember you have options. This is my 12th month transitioning and I have no plans of a BC unless something happens down the road where my hair is severely damaged.

Welcome to the board. I can understand your fear about short hair. I have never thought short hair fit my face. Happily I came around (sorta). Everything will be ok! Very Happy

Welcome to the board! You'll get a lot of support here whether you transition or BC. Dont feel like you need to BC unless you're ready. If you do, then embrace it and know that your hair will eventually grow. I bc'ed in July and it was the shortest hairstyle I ever had in my life! It was no fun the first 2-3 weeks because of dryness, but slowly I learned how to care for and properly moisturize my hair after researching and trial and error. I still have a love/hate relationship with my hair but at almost 7 months later, I am amazed at how much I've learned about how my hair functions from root to tip. You'll be ok. It all won't be fun, but there are more good days than bad (at least for me). Good luck and congratulations!

Thanks for the warm welcomes!

I have been transitioning for about 7 months. Unfortunately my hair is looking a hot mess. I have been using flexirods the whole time but now my relaxed ends just look ragged. It's time to chop. My hubby doesn't really like braids so I am all out of options. I just keep telling myself that it will grow. I'm going to cut it on the 25th.

Welcome DeM, just know the mind is half the Battle. What you tell yourself to take over your actions.

If you think you are Beautiful with or without hair you are Beautiful with or without hair. Good Luck on your Hair Journey.
