I look like this now

I feel happy, liberated, happy... I'm freaking out! I just grabbed scissors and said to hell with this. Everybody saw long pretty hair, all I saw was hair trying to get out and something in its way hiding it.

I will post pictures tomorrow! I can't find my camera right now.

    The pictures were updated late last night on my Fotki page. Boy does it feel WEIRD. I feel very empowered though. I do miss my hair a little bit, but not as much as I thought I would. My mom is gonna kill me! My husband is sad. My daughter said "mommy you look silly." My friend said I need hoop earrings and an afro pick and I'll look like Cleopatra Brown LOL

    I know that you really struggled about when to chop and I just want to say that your hair really looks lovely.

    Hey mariag002,

    Way to go! Looks good. I wish I had the courage. I'm still transitioning. I keep telling myself just one more month. I don't know why I'm still holding on? Congrats. :cheers:

    God Bless

    Maria, your hair looks good and frames your face well! It will be a little weird at first, but with all of your conditioning and loving care, your hair will grow fast and become more defined with less effort. You really do look nice; I like the headband.
