Default I BC'd After 10 Months of Transitioning

Well, Sunday morning around 2am I got the urge and BC'd. I was planning on waiting until July but I just couldn't wait anymore! It's short, but what the heck... Some interesting observations I made; the crown, which appeared to be the most coarse area throughout my transition, now looks as if it's the most loose and soft. Another thing is that about six months ago I cut the relaxed ends off of 2 strips of hair in my nape area and now they are twice as long as the rest of my hair; I think that's interesting. Detangling and Co-washing is a breeze! I wore my hair out that same day and I liked it, but I'm not quite ready to wear it out at this length, so I purchased a half wig today which I plan to wear on and off until around July or whenever I can get my hair in a ponytail... I'm still manipulating the wig to get the desired look, but so far so good Okay, enough rambling, here are some pics.

It must be those late night snacks getting to them LOL

Congratulations!!!!!
Your hair is beautiful and you have good length for 10 months. It might be short compared to how it was before, but it'll be long again before you know it!

Thank you ladies for all of your wonderful comments! And by the way, for those of you who suggested that I don't need the wig... U are absolutely right! I've decided to just rock my curls!! But what a waste of money. I could've purchased some new products with that money Oh well...

LOL at you cutting off your relaxed ends at 2 am. The first time I big chopped was at 4am in the morning. I think I was a little high from not getting any sleep.
