FINALLY all natural again!

MissJMissJ Posts: 196Registered Users
After 17 months of transtioning (and regret for ever getting that stupid relaxer), I finally cut off the rest of the straight ends yesterday! It's a lot shorter than I would normally go, but I don't care because I am loving being all curly again. I literally pulled my hair back every day for the past year & a half because I hated the relaxer, so to be able to wear it out again finally feels so good! Those of you transitioning right now, stick it out because it's worth it.. the time goes by fast, just don't harp on it. Thanks to you guys because I read the posts on here daily and it helped me so much. =) =)

    Thanks, girls! Everyone's so sweet... All of you who are still transitioning, just keep your goal in mind, and know that it will be worth it! I found it easiest to get a little bit cut off about every 6 weeks or so. It gave me encouragement to know that I was consistantly getting closer and closer to being relaxer free. Thanks again for all the congrats! =)
