This is going way back to when I first joined this site in April..... I dont remember who in particular I am thanking, but I hope you will recognize yourself:
I had been JTR for 5 years. I had a year of outgrowth and was going cold turkey, so I had half a head of curls and a bottom half of straight. I was actually using a curling iron every day to match the old hair with the roots.
I had made an appointment to get a perm<*!?#?!?> on the lower half of my hair, cause I was SO anxious to just be done with it. I HAD the appointment made, went for the test curl and everything. Someone here begged me not to do it - urged me on to hang in there and be patient. Fast forward 10 months:
I am SO
glad I waited. It seemes like forever but my hair is all grown out now, natural and healthy!
So thanks, whoever you are/were....
Many thanks to any and all curlies who have helped and supported along the way - extra thanks to those who made me laugh
This place is a tremendous resource of knowledge and support.
Happy and a healthy New Year to All!
