New and in need of advice.

So I have 4a hair and have been thinking about going natural for a few reasons now but my problem is that I don't want to lose the length of my hair now. I have been using perms since I was about 12 and I am 17 now. My hair isn't really damaged (I breakout quite a but). My next problem with going natural is how it would look and will it suit me. I'm hoping for a curly, not to big-haired look but I'm afraid I will just be disappointed. I don't want to start transitioning and end up going back to were I started and ending up with even more damaged hair. Any advice you guys can give me?

    check out all the newbie info thread, and the 4 thread. off the top of my head, i'd say, condition, condition, condition -- and make sure you use much of it as a leave in.
    you've come to the right place!
