I got so many crazy looks from people when I was transitioning
that I stopped telling people I was transitioning. They would just ask stupid questions like why are you cutting all your hair off or you'll look like a man. I just found it easier to only tell people that were encouraging me. But anyway don't pay them any mind.
diva2001a, if your hair is 90% natural why don't you just cut off the relaxed ends? I know its only been 7 months and trust me I completely understand. I found it easier to not force my hair to curl up (my hair was relaxed bone straight) until I actually did the big chop. Hang in there though because if you've made it this far you should be just fine. I would scan Youtube for ideas. Not sure how long your hair is but braid outs are great too.
Melody08, I've seen people transition for 2-3 years. I definitely don't have the patience, but it worked for them. I would just trim every few months and make sure to deep condition at least once a week. Your hair will be weak at the line of demarcation and you don't want to have a set back. As long as you take care of your hair and not use excessive heat you will transition with no problems.
Jamtastic Voyage! I had to hide the scissors in my house in order to keep going. I wanted to just shave my head bald LOL but kept reminding myself what a huge noggin I have. I barely had enough for a ponytail when I was done
but do what's right for you. Trust me when its time you'll just know.
