I've been transitioning for three months and I honestly cannot wait to cut my relaxed hair off. I feel like I'm obsessed with my natural hair! LOL Its all I talk about and the first thing on my mind in the morning. Could I be obsessed or just anxious. LOL

    I think it's an awesome thing that you're just excited about your natural hair; I love talking about my hair and I'm sure other curlies are the same way.

    I'm also three month post relaxer. I am so happy when I wash my hair and see the new growth.

    I am almost 6 months post relaxer now and I'm also OBSESSED with my natural hair! I cannot wait until I'm all natural!!! I have kinky twists in now and I just need to learn how to take care of them and moisturize.

    lol I think you're more anxious than anything. I was the exact same way when I began transitioning. Are you gonna big chop?

    I'm excited as well about being fully natural. Braid outs look so lovely on my hair. I've gotten so many complements on my hair since I've been transitioning. I'm about 8 weeks post. I'm in this for the long haul. I think summer is a perfect time to begin transitioning or continuing the process because summer our hair gets frizzy no matter what state it's in. I also think in the summer, we're forced to manipulate and moisturize our hair more to keep it looking healthy, tamed, and manageable.

      I was feeling the same way before I did my BC! I couldn't wait for my hair to grow out more, so I just chopped it all off! I'm still excited/obsessed with my natural hair though! I'm so glad that I did my BC because I'm able to learn my natural hair texture and what works good for it. I found that a lot of products I used when my hair was relaxed doesn't do well on my natural hair. I've been watching videos on YouTube which has me excited about all the styles I want to try when my hair grows out more!

      I am 8 months post relaxed and I feel the same as you. I love my natural hair and feel that the permed hair is in the way. I have about 10 inches of permed hair and 6 inches of new growth. Im scared to do the big chop but the permed hair is becoming really damaged. I don’t know what I will decide, right now curls seem to be working .......

      Yes. I'm going to see how much growth I have on my sixth month mark. I'm just nervous about not being able to style it, but I still can't wait.

      I totally understand. My last relaxer was in feb 2011 so I'm a newbie. Imy hair is very damaged from relaxer and coloring. When I wash my hair and the new growth is so dang safter than the relaxed hair and I'm sick of it. The only reason why I haven't bc yet because I'm scared of having short hair. But I'm on the edge of getting rid of it
