    I'm 20 and have been transitioning since August 2012. Your hair is not going to look the same because it has multiple textures: part curly, part wavy, and then there's the relaxed ends that are just barely hanging on. I refuse to BC my hair even though it will probably be easier. As a long-term transitioner, braid/twist outs with perm rods at the ends as well as Bantu knot outs and high buns have been my best friends. If you're comfortable with your length then don't BC, just use the above styles to blend your textures and create curl definition. I trim once every month, deep condition and cowash once every week, shampoo every 2-3 weeks, and do a protein treatment once a month. If you work with your transitioning hair now, you will be more comfortable with working with longer hair versus BCing and having to accept shorter styles. While transitioning, your hair will grow and once you cut the remaining relaxed ends, it will still be at a nice length versus a TWA

    GO NATURAL GIRLY! Its worth it, Im fourteen and I did it last year and I'm just happier now that I don't have to worry about straightening :) Don't get discouraged cause its not going to happen overnight, but if your using the right products (I suggest devacurl) and getting trims (I did that, took me about a year to get all the gross straightened hair cut off!) and stop using heat, then it will come! Im in such a better place now with my hair and I think you will be too, Ive almost perfected my methods (Except for the drying part!) and if you need help feel free to chat me :) K bye!
    Products: Devacurl No-poo, Conditioner, and Ultra Defining Gel
    Hair Type: Somewhere between 2C (The back of my hair) and 3A (The Front of my hair)

    Been CG for about a year, still trying to figure out my hair :)

    I agree with curlygirl_7. I'm so happy with my choice to rock my natural curls. My hair is healthier for it. Now that I have significantly reduced the heat I use on my hair, my hair doesn't shed as much. My hair doesn't break as easily.
