You've made a couple of posts about your new growth being too dry. What exactly are you doing to your hair? What are you using to moisturize it? What is going on that you can't even part your hair properly?

Look, I am new to these boards. This is only my second post. I don't know if it was your intention to mock but I am just trying to get some help. If you think there is a better place for me to post then it would be kinder if you suggested it to me instead.

Another reason I posted here is because at one point I was considering transitioning. I'm sure there are others who thought about it in this section and later decided against it as I did. I decided now is not a good time in my life because of all the upkeep. It's more expensive for me this way, and I do not have the time either.

No one is saying there is anything wrong with you deciding to perm your hair. It is your hair and you do as you wish. However it can/does get irritating when 'newbies' come on and post and post the same questions w/out first searching for answers and then get defensive bc other posters respond and question their tactics when they haven't even attempted the basics yet like using the search button.

Again your question would be better suited for the perming/straightening thread and not the transitioners thread. Good luck on your permed or eventual natural hair journey. Whichever way you decide to go!
