Hey Everyone! On the 7th Feb was the 10th month mark of my transition to natural, and even better....my 21st birthday :D. I know I say this all the time but, time is flying by!!! I am still loving my transition, absolutely loving seeing my hair grow, and quite frankly just loving life. At minimum I have another 10 months left of my transition, at maximum another 12 months. The hardest part of my transition thus far has been styling!!! It is still very much a hit and miss for me, possibly because I want a style that takes me no longer than 5mins. Before I started transitioning, I was used to my hair doing what I wanted.... now it's more of a compromise. Besides styling, I am starting to get curious about, how much hair I will have when I finally chop my relaxed ends off :S The internet bombards me with images of women who have grown their hair to magnificent lengths in incy wincy periods of time... I find them extremely inspirational and motivational but, at the same time I'm not trying to build false hope. I guess the 'amazing' thing about transitioning is that you don't really know what awaits you once you're natural. Let the journey to the unknown begin!!!
ps. Above is a picture that I took just after I washed my hair last week
