I have bad alopecia. I didn't know how to cope with my hair any more. It's was breaking off so bad last year and my alopecia spots were getting bigger so I decided enough is enough. I got my last perm in November of 2012 and called myself transitioning but I didn't take care or my hair like I was suppose to. I did the BC the end of march. My hair is very thick and coily. I have 4a type.

Sorry to hear about the alopecia. Many people spontaneous recover, is my understanding. I hope that will happen for you.
summer of 2010 it did my first big chop. my last perm was in October of the previous year. i was around some friends at school and one of them said I would look good with an afro. i was always fond of afros anyway, thanks to my aunt b/c her hair was natural and very beautiful. She's my biggest inspiration for going natural. i'm so glad i made that choice.
Urged on by a compliment ... that's terrific! Do you happen to have any hair pics you'd feel comfortable posting? (Either way, thanks for your story.)
