Anniversary

I'm near my one year anniversary of transitioning. A couple of months ago I finally found a stylist who could do my hair. The other day I tried to make an appointment for a trim and the salon said she left. I was so frustrated. It's like I have to start over looking for someone who can do my hair. I was almost ready to throw in the towel and go back to relaxing. Last night I had another epiphany. It's like when I feel like giving up, someone says something and I change my mind. I was looking in the mirror last night and I got giddy staring at my waves and curls. Why would I want to throw all my efforts away? So I'm going to keep working with my hair and hope to find someone that can help me along the way.

    You should try learning how to take care of your hair yourself. The only reason why I say this is because I too have lost good hairdressers and then I couldn't figure out how or what to do with my hair. Relaxing is only a temporary solution. Yeah you can find another hairdresser easier, but then you'll have to deal with touch-ups and breakage. I'm so glad you didn't do it :wink:

    I've discovered ways of styling my hair. I've done twists in different styles. It's fun learning how to do your own hair. I've gotten a lot of compliments.

    I ONLY get compliments when I do my hair myself. So I stopped going to the salon months ago.
