New Natural, Introductions!!

Hello :afro: I'm new to the community and just wanted to say hello! I am SO GLAD there are places like this to exchange info and ideas with other women on their hair journeys. A little history about me: My hair was relaxed for 13 years, and before the relaxer, it was always in a bun or braid with NO PRODUCT at all (I didn't even know ethnic products existed back then). Well, my hair was in really bad shape recently w/ the relaxer, so I finally decided to BC on 9/27/13. I have fallen absolutely IN LOVE with my own natural hair!! I'm having so much fun playing with different products and now that I'm starting to find things that work for me, I'm really enjoying the entire process. I have fine 3c-ish hair (I think?) with some 4a in concentrated areas around the crown, and the bottom back part of my head is more like a 3b, kind of wavy. It's a trip to be seeing and learning to care for my hair for the first time ever in my late 20s, but I'm so glad I decided to take this journey. Can't wait to have long, HEALTHY hair!! I would love to hear about some other people's journeys as well!

This is a pic from a couple of days ago. Does anyone here have similar hair to mine, or have any idea what it might look like when it's longer? I'm having some trouble with patience... :-? My hair was about BSL when it was relaxed, but I've never seen my natural hair out and free really, and the suspense is KILLING ME (in a good way) lol. Sorry for the long winded introduction, happy hair journeys, ladies!! :salute:
