I belive if you're ready to do it just go for it(: I have no regrets in my bc but I do get impatient and wish my hair could grow faster so I can do more styles. Oh and also make sure if you bc do it on a break or weekend if you're not 100% sure so you can pick a style that you really like(:

@mixxitup, when co-wash do you rinse out all of the conditioner then apply a leavin/ moisturizer? Are you sealing while your hair is still wet? What type of moisturizer are you using? depending on the weather where you live, glycerin in your moisturizer may not be your friend.

@Imgellin I did the BC back in July and haven’t regretted a thing However, I am 25 and dont have to deal with the pressures and issues of being a highschool student. Here are 2 youtube videos of young girls who did the BC and you can find plenty more online as well. One transitioned for like a year and the other one BC'd rather quickly. I honestly believe you will know when the time is right for YOU!
