    Oh no you didn't, LOL:geek:. I don't blame you for not wanting to cut your hair in the Spring and I wish I could wait longer but I'm so sick and tired of dealing with the different textures.

    I think it's a good idea to also have a Summer chop off (esp for people who want more length) but I have to stay with the Spring chop off since I started it.

    Hey, I've been stalking the forums (and curlynikki) for a few weeks now and I've decided to join this BC group since my last relaxer was in July. I've been wearing straw and flexirod sets while doing mini-cuts along the way. I'm wearing micro-braids now and will probably take these out and get some more braids around the end of Dec. Hopefully, I'll get my laptop working (it got a virus, no net at home :sad1:, stealing work time to feed my natural research habit lol) and I can post some pics once I take them out. Happy transistioning!
    Hair Type: Mostly 4a/b, OS I think...
    Last Relaxer: July 08
    Planning to BC in August 09!

    Welcome Shelly-welly!!! So, you're going to transition for a year?

    Yup, I would've gone for a shorter transistion, but I don't wanna have short hair in the winter lol.

    Hi Everyone!!! :wave: This is my first post (in this thread), so I consider myself a Newbie. My last relaxer was 7/17/08. I would like to join. Thanks for allowing this challenge. Right now I am wearing buns and braid outs. Wash day has beginning to be a chore. Detangling is okay. I am still in search of a good conditioner with slip. I am ambivalent about heat use. I love long hair and hope my hair will be long enough by late summer 09'.

    Sign me up! I'll be a full year in April, so for length purposes I'll chop in the summer! Excellent.

    Well, I am just one month into my transition, but I swear I feel a lump and a bump here and there, despite what my beautician says.

    My plans during this 10 month transition include to use cassia on the newgrowth every 3 months, I am cutting more of my hair in layers and the longest layer will be cut to my shoulders next month, every week until I am 3 months post, I am going to the beauty shop for rollersets.

    Spring and Summer BC's rock! I BC-ed April 13, 2008 to 0.25 inches and have 4 inches now. I stopped getting my ends clipped last month and was wondering if it would be bad to stopped getting them clipped for a while? They don't look bad and I've been keeping my hair very moisturized.

    ...and Summer BC. You are brave to BC with only 0.25 inches and I love your avatar pic. Is your hair pulled back in a bun?

    I'll be big chopping by the end of June. My last relaxer was the beggining of September. I have no pics yet, but I am getting a digital camera for Christmas :D I've been lurking for a while and decided to join. I have 1 inch and 1/2 right now, and I think I'm a 3c/4a.

    Oh wow! I am so slow. I am just now seeing this question. Yes girl, I am chopping off these relaxed ends! I think the longest I will allow my hair to grow will be armpit length this time as a natural.
  • Jaguar PawJaguar Paw Posts: 199Registered Users
    How's everyone doing with holding out a little longer? Interestingly, I am enjoying my relaxed hair with this amount of newgrowth I have (I am almost 3 months post). My rollersets are very full. I am expecting this not to last too much longer though. I give it to about March and braidouts will definitely be my primary hairstyle.

    I'm 5 months post and i've decided to wash less and use more 'bad' products. My hair has never been better. I have crazy dreading but I've been keeping that to a mininum. I'm just bunning it :)
  • heyitsmefeheyitsmefe Posts: 101Registered Users
    So...i'm having to renig on the whole summer BC. I have a wedding to be in Oct and I promised my sister that I would wait until after her wedding to do my BC, but as soon as it is over -- literally the day after. I AM cutting these relaxed ends off.

    Misc: 1st time going natural was '94-'98; 2nd time - '99-2003; This time I will not go back to relaxers.

    Hey I was just looking at your Fotki. Why do I cry every time you cut your hair or change it up? LOL :toothy9:
    You've cut ALOT since you decided to transition. I really can't see you waiting till August 09 to do the BC. My guess is April.

    Still love your hair!!! :notworthy:
    And I admire your cojones!

    U know, this transition is really interesting. My new growth really hasn't sprouted as much as expected and the amount I do have really blends in with my relaxed hair. I was just daydreaming about big chopping now, but if I did, I probably would be bald.

    Girl, August is going to definitely be the month. I have decided to take off work and everything the day after the chop to get over the initial shock of it all. This will be the first time I will really have short hair!

    I wanna join in on the late summer BC....I had my last relaxer in August 08 and I have over 2 inches of new growth...My hair was past my shoulders and I cut it to a bob. Im planning on gradually cutting more and more off, but im loving seeing my new growth and learning the texture and curl pattern...
  • heyitsmefeheyitsmefe Posts: 101Registered Users
    I'm back in! I decided that I'm not going to wait--I'll be ready to do the BC this summer. Can't wait ladies!:lol:

    I am 10 weeks post and I want to join :-)

    I'll be 35 weeks post -> A little over 8 months post on the 22nd of August.... I think I'll be tempted to BC then or a little earlier....

    Thanks for starting this thread!!!

    P.S. It's so funny cos my initial goal was 1.5 years, then it went down to 1 year now I'm thinking August.... :-)
