How can I get my mom to let me transition?

I'm 13, and I want to transition. I want to see what my hair looks like. I remember when I was a little girl I begged my mom to let me get a relaxer. Now, about 7 years later, I'm regretting it. My hair used to be thick and now my hair looks like it's starting to thin. I brought up transitioning a couple months ago, but she just fussed about my hair looking "bad". She said it was expensive. Which I think is absurd considering she spends $60-$70 on my hair per month. She also said that I had to get a blowout, which I told her isn't true. I'm prepared to do everything necessary during my transition, and I've done my research. Can someone please help me?! How did your parents react when you told them you wanted to go natural?

    Show her you tube videos about natural people styling their here. Also show the natural products you can find in so many stores and even videos of relaxer damage

    Tbh, I didn't tell my mom until about I was ready to chop, which was at 10 mos. She didn't want me to chop at first but as I started wearing more curly styles and cutting little pieces off at a time, she didn't even notice that I was natural lol. But now she loves my curls :). So the moral of the story is, transition, but maybe keep it it on the dl? (As terrible as that sounds) try to ease her into this part of your life.
    And tell her it's not more expensive because really you could use what you were using before.
