I decided yesterday to stop with the perms. I'm done and I'm so excited. I'm thinking about getting micros. I have to boys under the age of three so I don't have time for anything. I think braids will give my hair a break and ease me through the transition period. Even though I permed my hair i would still wear it culy once and a while by experimenting with different gels and leave-in products. I am just hoping I can achieve the same look with my natural hair. It has been so long. I was a little girl and the choice wasn't mine. I would never do that to a child. I am ready to make the transition. So sick of thin brittle hair. I want my natural hair back. I am old enough to handle the backlash and have the means to get the products to help me along the way. Any advice?
