Monthly Growth Update!
Hey ladies! The 28th of April made my four month anniversary, and I realized that I sadly have NO pictures of my journey so far! So I decided to create a thread where I'll post one photo monthly (or bimonthly) to document my new growth. Feel free to add your photos as well or start discussions. This is not an easy process and I could use all the support I could get ;).

Your hair looks beautiful.
Your new growth looks like 3c. I love it. Enjoy your transition, I couldn't deal with it anymore, I Big chopped in march, I transitioned from Nov 2011 til March 2012.

Thanks girl! And yeah dealing with the two textures is ridiculous! How did you like your hair after you BC'ed? Was/Is it easier to deal with?

Thanks girl! :) I'm finding it easier and easier to have a constant regimen. But there are those times where my hair fights back haha.

I'm not quite six months yet but I did a mini chop on the back of my hair, I couldn't help it ;) I promise I won't make anymore posts until I'm six months in haha.

Straightened hair for the first time in three months! :)

Thank you, Trawls20!

On my seven month anniversary, I big chopped ladies! I'll probably do a growth update every three months now, since doing it every month will be a bit of stretch with school starting back up. But anyway, here are some pics. My hair is finally starting to come together! Hair type anyone? I'm leaning towards 4a!

Your hair looks great! I'll be 6 months post on Friday. I'm leaning towards BCing at 10 months

Hello ladies! Man it's been so long!! Any-whoo today is my 18 month anniversary for being relaxer free, and my 11 month anniversary for my big chop!! Super excited, and I hope this encourages anyone who is on the fence about going natural! Do it! My hair is almost back at its original length! I'll never go back! Hang in there!
