I BC'ed!!!

Friday night, more like early Saturday morning, I had my boyfriend give me the worst hair cut possible. I was determined to chop off my hair. The boyfy (my version of wifey) was so against it. He thought I'd hate my hair short and get mad at him for listening. He's not fond of short hair on women (whatever!). Sooo at about 1:30am I finally convinced him to cut. He ran downstairs, grabbed two coronas, put on some Drake (because I love love him) and started snipping away. It was awesome. I don't thin I would have had it any other way.

Saturday morning the boyfy and I went to the barbershop, he got his shapeup and I got my hair um... corrected. You know, I have yet to regret it.

    Hi Everyone! Thank you so much for your kind responses! I'm sorry I haven't responded in a timely manner, I've been so busy with school. I truly think my professors have it out for me... or at least would like me to turn gray! :-)

    @ailemac: I suppose it was liberating... I kinda just did it. I don't know if I looked at it that way, but looking back it was. Now I have less hair to deal with and the little hair that I do have is amazingly healthy!

    @Congolaise: Oh yes! The corona was necessary! I hope you finally quenched your thirst! :-) I love my coronas with a LOT of lime! As far as pictures are concerned here is a link to my fotki account. It's not private but you do need to have a fotki account to view the pictures, if you have any problems, please pm me and I'll see what I can do to fix it.

    @Shinky: Thank you so much! The link to the fotki is posted above. I don't mean to brag, but he is very supportive. I am grateful to have him in my life...

    @rockthecurlz: Thank you for your support!!! I'm so proud of myself! (If I do say so...)

    @Caramel_gyrl254: Girl do it! It's amazing! Let me know how it goes and post pictures!! Congrats on your decision to embrace the curls!

    @vmocha: Haha trust it took a LOT of convincing! He was not a happy camper... I think he's grown into my new look... it's different from what I normally rock so... I dont know I think in his mind it's like having a new girlfriend. hahaha


    Also, does anyone know how I can get follow up responses emailed to me or at least notified when someone responds to a thread I've written in?

    @DeeMarie: Thanks! Yours looks great too! I would love to see your progress. How long did you transition for? Sometimes I wish I had the strength and patience for a longer transition... :-) Take care!

    Thank you so much! I've had two people ask me if I had an s-curl... I'm not sure how I should take that, hahah part of me is like "oh maybe that's what an s-curl is supposed to look at" the paranoid side of me says "um... does that mean my hair looks processed?!"

    I love yours too! Your pictures are amazing! I can't wait to watch your progress! I'm glad you love your texture, I love mine too. For a while I was nervous about how I would look with natural hair or if I would even like (read: have patience with) my hair. I just remember it being very dry and extremely frizzy. Now that I've learned(still learning!) how to take care of my hair, I realize how just simple tender, love and care would have made all the difference.

    Hey! Thanks! I transitioned for about 3 months. I had my last relaxer in early February 2009 and I BC-ed May 2, 2009. His support means a lot to me, and even if he didn't like it well.. we'd have to figure that out, but I wouldn't change my hair for anyone.

    I'm so excited, thanks for your support!!!
