I have to agree with CurlyFocused.

Toward the end of my transition, I had about 8 inches of natural hair and about 4 inches of relaxed ends. Even though I was mostly natural, the relaxed hair still had enough weight to distort my curl pattern. When you finally chop, you will find (as most people do) that you have more than one curl pattern on your head. You will be surprised at how well these various patterns blend.

So yeah, don't stress it. You'll just have to wait and see what you're working with when you finally chop.
