So after 9 months of transitioning, I finally decided to BC. I wanted to wait until next month but I said wth, let me get it over with.
The reason why I did it was because I was tired of my ends getting tangled. And it didn't make sense to keep my ends when I was going to cut them off in June.
I feel sooooo free! I can jump in the shower and don't have to worry about my relaxed ends getting knotted up!
Even though I feel weird about my hair length because it's super short, I still love it!! The only thing I'm worried about is heat damage. I think I might have a little heat damage. Idk if it's some relaxed ends left (my mom was cutting for the longest trying to remove it but trying to save me some length) or it's because I JUST BC but I have some straight ends. Hopefully it's still some relaxed ends because throughout my transition I didn't use that much heat.
Now I can focus on growing my hair out to APL. I'm going to box braid my hair next week and take them out in June just so I can get a head start on my growing out process.
But I'm just super happy that I finally BC. And for those who are contemplating on BC, just do it!
It's has to go at some point, so why not doing an get it over with!
Here some pix of what my hair looks like.

(I here we go! Shrinkage is NO JOKE!)
(see the straight ends? I hope it's nothing serious)
