Default I just did the big chop :D

At my boyfriend's house.
Sitting right next to him.
Lasted only like 20 minutes.
I thought I would need his help, but I didn't.

It was awesome. It only took me about 20 minutes to finish. I transitioned for about a week shy of 31 months. It was extremely unplanned. I just thought, "why not?" When I was done, he said "you're beautiful" then I boldly walked out of the house to go to the store.

Tip to transitioners: You truly and honestly do NOT know your hair type until you BC. I thought I had a few 3C's and was mainly a mix of 4A/4B... Let's just say that I now just call myself a type 4 because I don't know what's going on up there.

31 months?! Oh my gosh you have amazing patience. I have never had really short hair so BC'ing is a scary thought for me. I've only been transitioning for 5 months and I'm DYING to see my true curl pattern. I'm glad to hear you love it!

Congrats!

Slightly off topic: I think BCs often look terrific (including as they're growing out). Especially when the person has a nice head shape LOL

Super short can be super cute ... even elegant and stunning IMO.

Umm well, most of you are going to be discouraged ^____^;; Compared to other people, I don't think my hair grew so much. Either that or it's just a lot of shrinkage. Also, to be perfectly honest, I'm not 100% sure that I transitioned for exactly 31 months, but I know for a fact it's anywhere between 28-31 months. And, yes, it is kind of uneven. The front (when stretched) only reaches to my nose and the sides (when stretched) reach to about collar bone length. Please excuse my appearance in the pics. I was just getting ready for bed, wearing my grandma night gown. Better that than nothing, right?

This is my hair right after I washed out my deep condition and put some shea butter in it.



Some ends are still straight...




And this is when it is completely dry and styled.




I'm not sure what my hair pattern is anymore. Sometimes I think 4A, then I think a mixture of 4A/4B, then 4C. Now, I just gave up and call it "type 4" hair. I'm happy with that

Anywho, good to anyone else transitioning!! Hang in there! It was fun

LOL No need to apologize for your pics. Your hair is terrific

I know some people put a lot of emphasis on length, but IMO beautiful hair is natural, well-cared for hair.
