Congrats, I'm happy for you! I would say 3c or 3c/4a but, psh, what do I know? How long did you transition? Any tips on doing the BC yourself?

Some products that were working well before the BC are not quite as cooperative anymore, so the experimentation begins all over again! :)

I transitioned for about 11 months.
And all I did was load up my wet hair with conditioner, section it into small pieces and chop chop chop! I'm all for doing the BC yourself. It's empowering and you have control how much you want to cut.
I still get giddy when I look in the mirror.
Lol! I took my silk scarf off this morning and almost forgot and half expected my hair to fall down my back. :blob3:

OMG, you did it! I don't know if you remember, but we were supposed to support each other through the Spring Challenge! [I think we both joined this site around the same time and were at about the same point in transition. Unfortunately, life got in the way and I haven't really posted much in the forum. But I check in every now and then and I've gotten SO MUCH VALUABLE INFO from this site.]

You did what I have been thinking so much about doing lately. I am now about a week away from my 11 mo. relaxer-free anniversary. I finally posted pics to my fotki -- I am SO sick of the straight ends. But I'm scared. :toothy9: I just can't imagine HOW I would actually wear my hair if I BC'd right now. At least with the length I can still bun. I am not kidding...I have worn a bun for what will soon be 365 days straight!!!! ACK. But I keep thinking there's no way I'll make it to May (the Challenge date).

Congratulations to you! You've inspired me!

Aww thanks!!
Yea... I kinda ended up bailing on that challenge, but for reasons that had more to do with upcoming events. I'm sure you'd look great if you chopped now, but I hope you can stick with the challenge though! You'll be happy you have more length by then, I'm sure.
Keep us updated! :toothy10:

Suburbanbushbabe 01-11-2009 10:35 AM

Congratulations! I left you some comments. You look like a mostly 3c. Love your little chopped hair, it is so pretty.

c.ptfemme 01-17-2009 01:45 AM

Congrats on your bc!!! :thumbright:

cysyca 01-18-2009 03:23 AM

Mixeded,

I have not been on NC for a while and didn't know you did the BC, but it looks GREAT! Congratulations, I love your 3C curls.

sharonmichelle 01-18-2009 07:24 AM

Whoa! Curl & Texture Look Like Mine
 
You're a brave inspiration. Good work.

I'd say you're a 3c.

My hair has the curl & texture that I see in your pics.

If you haven't decided where to begin with products, I'd be interested to hear about your experimentation as you go along and make those choices.

Q: Can we stay in-touch somehow?

Speckla 01-18-2009 09:35 AM

Congratulations! Very pretty and that's a nice amount of growth!

LisaF1163 01-18-2009 10:27 AM

Congratulations! Your curls are gorgeous. I did the BC after a japanese straight-perm three years ago, and I didn't regret it for a second.

ljkelly 01-18-2009 07:23 PM

So pretty!
 
I went to your fotki (and commented a few times) I LOVE your curls! It looks so pretty!! Congrats!
