Transitioning 6months post's Journals
i decided back in June 07 to go natural i had gone almost 4months without a relaxer when i moved to a new state and i wanted someone else to do my hair. the beautician told me it wasn't healthy to go natural so she permed it Oct. 07. upset i was didn't even like the hairstyle. i still wanted to go natural so i haven't had a relaxer since the 22nd Oct. it hasn't been long but i'm so excited to see the outcome of going back. i'm not ready for the BIG CHOP yet so i'm going to transition for a while. any advice will be so helpful i am new to this :o)
Yes indeed just took the time to look back to when I first started & I must say my hair has changed alot. Its only my fault, not that I straightened much but the times I did kept loosening the front of my hair & I didn't notice til now. Eventhough I only tried it once Henna loosened the front too & I didn't need that since the front of my hair isn't like the back. Anyways after taking out my kinky twists at 6wks I guess I hadn't noticed before I got them-but I had MAJOR heat damage. I have a ton of straight pieces in the back that don't curl at all. And in the front the roots are fine but halfway down the strands it goes straight & then back curly at the ends. If I wanted to wear a wash-n-go I couldn't. Plus I'm not sure what happened in the middle of my head but its much shorter than the front & the back, like it broke off. Its really stringy. Oh well like I said my fault, I've learned trust me. There will be no B/C(wish I could) my fiance' won't go for that. So I'm getting a relaxer & just transitioning for a LONG LONG LONG time. I know he can't deal with another B/C he didn't won't me to get the first one.
