I've actually done both and am in process of transitioning again.

If you are impatient, BC. You have to have patience to deal with two textures.
However, be aware that once you BC, you may still be dealing with multiple textures (tighter curls in some areas). That frustrated me when my hair got to a certain length and I ended up relaxing again.

Good Luck!
