How did you BC?

Did you go to a salon or did you do it yourself? Did you cut it blunt all one length or in layers? I'm so ready to do mine. TIA

    I went to the salon and they cut it all one length. I was aiming
    to get rid of the relaxed hair. Congrats on your decision!
    For me it was very scary at first, but I was glad that I did it!
    Keep us posted! :)

    My hair is in long layers right now. Do you think that they would work on shoulder length hair? Did you let the salon use the non CG products on your hair?

    I wouldn't see why not. I went to a certified Devachan stylist in Upstate, NY. I do remember her pooing my hair because she said that I had a bit of buildup.
    I really didn't want her to, but I was assertive enough and besides, I thought what the heck! It's just this one time. Now I live closer to NYC and only go to Devachan in NYC. Which state do you live in?

    i went to my sister's salon and she cut it all off! i went from past shoulder length relaxed hair to about an inch of natural curls during my lunch break! it was the scariest/best thing ive ever done.

    I just went for the whole enchilada the first time. I cut it myself in the bathroom while my hubby watched. You can see it in my photo albums if you look at "The Great Transition" and then the "BC". Of course now, I am cutting a little at a time and trying to regain the beautiful curls that I was growing before I completely lost my mind last Summer. I won't cut it all off again, but I will be cutting a little at a time until I look normal again. LOL!

    I went to a natural hair salon for the "chop" and to get two strand twists. However, they literally cut off my relaxed ends and didn't give me a style! My hair looks crazy now. Even crazier when it's straightened. But I'm happy the relaxed ends are gone for good!

    I did mine with a friend in my bathroom. I'd definitey recommend going to a salon. That way you can ensure there aren't any bit of relaxed hair still hanging around and you can ask questions about maintenance, products, life, mating habits of Tahitian fruit flies, anything, etc.

    I went to a salon to get mine done. It definitely went shorter than I thought it would, but I'm getting used to it and I really like it! Plus it's a relief to finally have a style and have all the crappy parts of my hair gone.
