Spinoff- summer 09 chop off

I have to renig on the Spring 09 chop off. That would be one bold move for me,so I decided that after 10 months of transitioning in August , I will chop then. Anyone who's scared to chop in the spring wanna join this challenge? Chop between June and August.

Oh no you didn't, LOL. I don't blame you for not wanting to cut your hair in the Spring and I wish I could wait longer but I'm so sick and tired of dealing with the different textures.

I think it's a good idea to also have a Summer chop off (esp for people who want more length) but I have to stay with the Spring chop off since I started it.

I'm down for the summer BC. That will give me a full year of transitioning
I was planning to cut some time after May so I'll join the challenge.

Hey, I've been stalking the forums (and curlynikki) for a few weeks now and I've decided to join this BC group since my last relaxer was in July. I've been wearing straw and flexirod sets while doing mini-cuts along the way. I'm wearing micro-braids now and will probably take these out and get some more braids around the end of Dec. Hopefully, I'll get my laptop working (it got a virus, no net at home , stealing work time to feed my natural research habit lol) and I can post some pics once I take them out. Happy transistioning!

Yup, I would've gone for a shorter transistion, but I don't wanna have short hair in the winter lol.
Hi Everyone!!! This is my first post (in this thread), so I consider myself a Newbie. My last relaxer was 7/17/08. I would like to join. Thanks for allowing this challenge. Right now I am wearing buns and braid outs. Wash day has beginning to be a chore. Detangling is okay. I am still in search of a good conditioner with slip. I am ambivalent about heat use. I love long hair and hope my hair will be long enough by late summer 09'.

I'm planning on doing my BC in June (that'll be one full year), so count me in! Hopefully I don't chicken out and wait longer.
Sign me up! I'll be a full year in April, so for length purposes I'll chop in the summer! Excellent.

Well, I am just one month into my transition, but I swear I feel a lump and a bump here and there, despite what my beautician says.

My plans during this 10 month transition include to use cassia on the newgrowth every 3 months, I am cutting more of my hair in layers and the longest layer will be cut to my shoulders next month, every week until I am 3 months post, I am going to the beauty shop for rollersets.

Spring and Summer BC's rock! I BC-ed April 13, 2008 to 0.25 inches and have 4 inches now. I stopped getting my ends clipped last month and was wondering if it would be bad to stopped getting them clipped for a while? They don't look bad and I've been keeping my hair very moisturized.

I'll be big chopping by the end of June. My last relaxer was the beggining of September. I have no pics yet, but I am getting a digital camera for Christmas I've been lurking for a while and decided to join. I have 1 inch and 1/2 right now, and I think I'm a 3c/4a.
I just started taking these micros out and I'm sooo tempted to BC. I really want to hold out until at least July. Please give me some will power!
