i have been transitioning for about 15 months. i'd say i have about 5 inches of new growth and 7 of relaxed waves. i'm really tempted to cut my hair b/c i'm starting not to like how my hair looks when i wash and go. my friends and family are not keen on me cutting my hair. luckily hubby will support me no matter what. only things stopping me are fear, b/c i've never had short hair and i'm starting a new job so i don't want to look a mess since i'm a novice to the naturally curly thing, and my friend is getting married, so i feel long hair will be easier to style. but come Nov. i have a feeling i'll be itching to cut it.
