So I finally did it. I had a sew in for about 3 months got some new growth and cut the tracks out LOL... I looked a damn mess anyway. I didn't cut it all evenly so there are spotw where you see my scalp. That was October 28, 2012. As of now I am almost 2 weeks natural (from my big chop). I am definitely a 4C, my hair soaks up oil and the only time I have seen a curl pattern was when I washed and conditioned my hair after my big chop. I've been putting flax seed oil on it (it's the only thing I have in the house) but tomorrow and I am headed to the beauty supply to see what I can pick up. I need something to co-wash with as well as a moisturiser. I'm not in love with my hair as of yet but I not devestated it's gone either. My mom couldn't stop laughing when she saw I cut my tracks out. She was laughing to the point of tears. SHe's natural too. I have a couple of sew in wigs I have made becasue I am not used to having no hair. This experience is so new to me. I have been finding comfort in watching the journey of other 4C girls on YouTube. Anyway that's all I have for now. I will probably have more to say once I have some products for my regimen... Until then, Dana... Out LOL
