    I say just do it. I transitioned for such a short period of time because I couldnt deal with/was extremely frustrated with dealing with 2 different textures that needed two different care methods.

    Yes, having really short hair was a shock, but I think it was completely worth it. I'm watching my baby TWA grow and flourish and it's really exciting :)

    Good luck on your journey!

    I BC-ed at the end of June, and ohhh, I was so happy I did =)

    I had friends who were not exactly encouraging... as in "Katie!! You CANNOT cut your hair!! Long hair is... different!"

    ...this because I had near-waist-length hair and wanted to cut it to shoulder-length. It's APL now, I forget what it was then, but I would encourage you to do it. Who cares what people say... for any negative comments you might get, there's at least someone who will be (maybe silently) applauding you.
    I am a 3a/b with normal-coarse hair that is medium-thick and fairly porous.

    Currently using:
    ~VitaminShampoo (CG :mrgreen: )
    ~L'oreal Vive Pro Nutri Gloss for medium to long hair that's curly/wavy that is a mouthful.
    ~Garnier Fructis curl-shaping spray gel
    ~Pantene curl defining mousse
