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.

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. 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!
BC'd April 25, 2009 : http://public.fotki.com/DeeMarie617/bc/image1.html

Keep us updated!

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.
Live For Today!
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?
