Question Best way to grow out after the big chop?

For the last couple of years, I've been playing with the idea of going natural. I finally did it. I cut all the perm off and now I'm stuck with a short fro (still don't know how I feel about that). I think I'm a 4a and when my hair is stretched I've got about 3". Other than braids (because the Africans are killing my edges) what's the best way to grow my hair out? I was thinking maybe I could alternate between a wig and braids, just to let my hair rest. Any advice?

Congratulations on your BC and I'm also transitioning now but plan to wait until April before BCing. Yes, leave the braid alone if they are too tight because growing back your edges is a very slow process. A wig, maybe. Last week, I was in a beauty suppy store and discovered these nice half wigs which seems to be very popular in my area. Just go try a few on and let me know what you think.
