#141: New to transitioning
It's been about a month since my last perm, and I'm exciting. Problem, I haven't been 100% natural since I was 9. I stopped perming at 11 and began again at 13. So, I honestly barely know what my natural texture is like. I'm excited to see, and I'm tired of the horrible chemical I got from salons when I began relaxing again. I'm 16 and being natural was never something really enforced, perming is just something you do in my family. But, I'm excited to stop and I have my mind set on this. My current length is below APL a few inches from BSL. It took long for my hair to get there so I plan on gradually cutting my permed ends off while my natural hair reaches BSL. I realize that this may take 2 years + but I'm willing to go for it. Any tips ladies? Any one have a successful long transition?
