Default Transitioning Milestone!

Hello fellow transitioners, i just thought I'd share something significant that I did at the weekend! For the first time (ever) I went out in public with some natural curls on display!!!

When I was little my mom always tied my hair back to get rid of it, and i didnt wear my hair down til I started relaxing it at like 15! I have never ever worn my natural hair down, I mean I didnt even know it was curly til I came on nc.com and started learning about naturally culry hair!!

I am have a lot of natural growth but as my hair is long most of my hair is still relaxed, but I had done a little chop right at the back and loved my ringlets. So about a month ago I cut a fringe that was longish and almost all natural.

However, last weekend I had finally managed to do a rollerset that didnt fall out immediately, so i had the idea to cut of the remaining centimetre of relaxed hair that was on my fringe... i did it and hey presto ringlets in the front! I was so proud! I went out on the town, and i was a bit scared of wot ppl would say so i pinned bits of the natural part back but wore a couple ringlets actually out, on display... major step for me!!

Everyone says it looked lovely.. i'm so happy i jus had to share!!

That's great to hear, I'm happy for you!
It's always a nice confidence boost when you try something new and others notice and appreciate it.

Isn't it liberating?? I just did my final BC this month and I finally went out with my own hair out (no extensions this time) and it was really liberating (even though at the time, my hair looked a bit frizzy and crazy...bad product day.). There's something so freeing about being able to just be yourself out there when you've not been able to for so long.
