beautiful curls!! both of you will look back and be soooo happy you did this for both of you. you have really helped her like her hair/looks, she is beautiful.
i know what you mean about being freed from the 'bondage' of the relaxer, as i stopped coloring my hair almost 4 yrs ago (something i wanted to do for years but always dreaded that transition) and whenever i see a woman with her roots showing i just think, thank god i don't have to deal with the whole process, the dye, the conditioning, the too dark week the first week, 3rd week fading and roots showing.... it is a relief! and i am so happy with my hair as i am sure you are too. it will be fun watching it now that you are CG.
