i just finished doing my bc! i couldnt take it any more and cut like 3 or 4 in of straight ends off. im pretty sure i didnt do the best job and am going to have to see a stylist. AND ive got some kind of crazy mulletish-looking fro. altogether, its kinda scary and im afraid i look like crap right now, but i can at least get it into a pony puff thing, so, ill probably be doing that for quite a while. im gonna try not to blow it straight or flat iron it, and will start co-washing as often as possible. thanks for getting me to this point folks! sorry, no pics yet...
