I'm new to the forum. I too am transitioning without the BC. I have bra strap length hair. I have not had a relaxer in about 5 months and my new growth is manageable. Right now I am doing braid outs.

I just wonder....what do you do with the new growth once it starts getting out of hand. Can you flat iron it? I am thinking I want to get a blowout and trim once a month. And wear a braid out in between.
Will this work?
