#1: How can I get my mom to let me transition?
I'm 13, and I want to transition. I want to see what my hair looks like. I remember when I was a little girl I begged my mom to let me get a relaxer. Now, about 7 years later, I'm regretting it. My hair used to be thick and now my hair looks like it's starting to thin. I brought up transitioning a couple months ago, but she just fussed about my hair looking "bad". She said it was expensive. Which I think is absurd considering she spends $60-$70 on my hair per month. She also said that I had to get a blowout, which I told her isn't true. I'm prepared to do everything necessary during my transition, and I've done my research. Can someone please help me?! How did your parents react when you told them you wanted to go natural?
