I made this video last night with you guys in mind. I was YOU last year and can relate to your struggle. I did it and so can you! So hang in there and before you know it your hair will be all natural again.

Hope it inspires you!

    Maria,

    I just watched your video and it's great (nice touch with the music) and I'm really inspired now! Your hair is beautiful and so healthy. Thank you once again for taking the time out to us transitioning sisters because it's not easy but as you demonstrated its worth it.

    Thanks for taking the time to do this. It is a huge encouragement to me since I did the bc last December and am easily discouraged with the growing out process. Based on your postings I ordered some MT and it arrived this week. I am now using this regularly. I hope this it works as well for me as it did for you.

    Thanks for thinking of your sistas out here! We need success stories to keep us going. Grow hair grow!:blob7::blob7::blob7::blob7::blob7::blob7::blob7:

    Awesome, awesome, awesome.........even though I'm not transitioning...........I applaud you for being so meticulous in taking pictures during the year. I've been a CG for 2 years now.........so I know how hard at time it could have been for you. By the way.....the picture at the beginning with a headband is awesome. I did buy a bamboo headband which is soft......doesn't give me headaches:) (That being said I just did a big chop).............your hair is as cute as a button:salute::salute:
