Hi I decided to transition again and stay natural for good this time. I started at the beginning of the year made it to only 4 months post and then relaxed. Well I am determined to go through with it this time. I am currently 9 weeks post. Wish me luck all.

    Thank you yeah I'm excited. When I was natural before I just did the BC but now I am not as brave. Transitioning will definately be a challenge. I will be sharing a hair album soon.

    This is my second time as well. The first time I did the big chop. It was cool. Now I'm not so sure. I think I'll do the big chop in a couple months. I'm letting my hair grow out.

    I'm on my second go 'round now as well. Good luck and good transitioning!

    Thanks all...let's keep each other posted. I am not doing the Big Chop like I have done in the past. So this is going to be a real challenge. Also I get bored really easily but I really want to do this. Here is a pic of my new growth so far I am excited to see my natural hair coming back.

    My mother told me that she likes my hair texturized. I don't. I have no prolbem with natural hair. Aparently she does. I can't please her anymore. My scalp and hair line really suffered this time. I feel she has to deal with or not. Yes ladies it is that bad!!! She will ruin our relationship over some hair. LOL!!!

    P.S. Your hair looks great! :)

    The products are in small jars about the size of a carmax container. I have 3c-4a-maybe some 4b too that adds spice. Anyway....so far I definitely like the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/CURLS-Curls-Milkshake-p-884.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=Curls-Curls-Milkshake]curls milkshake[/buylink] and glaze. Also I like the BB happy nappy and [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Blended-Beauty-Straight-Pearl-p-564.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=blended-beauty-straight-pearl]straight pearl[/buylink]. You can order a sample pack for $20 that includes 10 samples of your choice.
