Your P's sound like most parents with curly/coily/kinky-haired kids. I had my first relaxer at 10ish I believe...I only remember my hair being very poofy because my mom would brush through it as if it were straight. Mine was usually in like 2-6 braids or buns though.
Congrats on deciding to become natural and taking the plunge with a BC!
Last relaxer: April 2, 2012 ... I'm Transitioning!
