Thanks so much everyone for the kind words! I was really nervous before I chopped, but I'm glad it's over and I did it.
I am on day 2 of my new natural journey and it's going to take some getting used to! Today I did a puff after defining my curls with Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie. I'm not comfortable wearing it all loose quite yet. Here's what it's looking like in a puff. I can't wait for it to gain some length! I guess now I'm on a growth/natural journey!
