I finally...

...Did the BC! Yesterday at the Dollar Store I was talking to this natural girl that works there that I talk to every time i go in, and she told me that I should just get it over with already. She got me thinking that there are so many beautiful natural girls with short hair. So today I just chopped it all off (I transitioned for 9 mths). I was very scared and nervous about it, but now I like it! This is the riskiest thing I've ever done with my hair, I've never had my hair shorter than APL (it's CBL stretched now). But it feels good to be rid of all of that damaged hair. I only relaxed for a yr and the rest of my life i've been natural, only now I know how to take care of it properly. I can't believe how bad I treated my hair before. I dyed it, fried it with the flat iron, used crappy ingredients, didn't DC enough, didn't detangle often enough which lead to matting, and relaxed it. Now that i've been treating my hair good I have to say this is the healthiest my hair has ever been. I think I'm a 3C/4A. I included a pic.

    Your curls look wonderful, very healthy.

    I wish I could push my hair back with a headband, but that doesn't really work for me. :lol:

    I have entirely too much hair for a headband. My hair pushes them back forward or up and out of my hair. LOL .

    Oh okay. That happens to me sometimes. I get those ones that have the elastic behind the headband part. They work when they want, but that one in the pic always works...the teeth are a tad bit longer than most so it stays put. Got it from the dollar general and it works better than my more expensive ones.

    Yeah I only use those when I do a bun or something. Otherwise my hair eats them. LOL. . Hmm . . I'll go look for more headbands like that in Dollar General, thanks for the tip.

    Yw! Haha, I used to use them for everything, but my hair isn't quite long enough for a pony tail yet, so it's my only option! Actually I haven't had the time to try to put it in a ponytail so idk how that'll go yet lol.
