Default I went for it! BC!

I did it, I made my decision and went to the stylist. I told him to cut all the relaxed hair (he was very nice, he even told me his own BC story!)
I love the texture, even tho' it's a little on the dry side, and how it just curls all over the place! I'm still having time adjusting to the length, but surely I'll get over it in no time.
The only thing that's really bothering me is people's reactions. They CAN'T believe I cut my hair. My friends have been very supportive, but my dad and family are really negative about it.

Your hair looks lovely. I have done the BC several times and whilst I found it liberating personally, I also suffered some negative reactions.

Helps to remember that it is your hair, you can choose what to do with it. Be proud of your courage!

It looks really nice. Those glasses are cute! Everyone will get used to it or get over it. It's just a big change and people sometimes have a hard time with it. Good for you.
