I transitioned without BC. I just couldn't have really short hair. Length has always been really important to me. I just started wearing my hair curly and following techniques in the curlygirl book or from this site. You couldn't even really tell where the two textures met. Just be really careful with your hair, treat it like old lace and pay attention to the ingredients in your hair products. I eventually cut the rest off but by then the cut only took it too above my shoulders around my neck.

Back on Cones,so now my routine is,wash with Deva No-Poo every other day or so. Occasionally use 365 sulfate free,maybe use low sulfate shampoo mixed with conditioner once every two weeks are longer. I condition with Aussie Moist or HEHH. I style with a little GF TN,and finish up with tons of GN Pure Clean Smoothing Cream. No frizz...slippy, happy hair.
