okay so i just decided to start transitioning today. i went to go relax my hair and something inside me screamed NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so i'm doing it! Great! One problem..I'm a singer in Houston who is just now starting to get noticed for her talent. But in the entertainment business image is everything. I don't care if people don't like it when i do my BC but in r&b the image is relaxed and weaved.. you know..Beyonce`. if i was doing Neo-Soul like India Arie or Erykah Badu it would expected..i guess i'm trying to figure out will this make someone count me out as an r&b singer or am i just scared and looking for excuses..by the way..after the BC what kind of products can i use to get well defined curlz? i love curlz and i can't get them with this yucky relaxed hair!

    You can always wear a lace wig. The majority of Black female artists wear wigs.

    I guess I dont understand the point to going natural if your are going to wig it up anyway.

    The point to being in the entertainment business is being bold and setting trends!! Besides being natural is about YOUR OWN self confidence!!

    Dare to be you!!
