Before I did my BC, I tried transitioning! I didn't really transition well because I hated doing my hair. After years of extentions (fake hair), I actually had to wake up and try to do something with my real hair. Well, here are some photos of my transition.
To the right is a fake afro achieved by the picture above: bantu knots(I'll show you later how to do them).
My hair is just bobby pinned to the middle.
Notice, lack of effort.
NOW, FOR THE BC!!!!!!!!!!!!
I didn't like transitioning at all! It required wayyyyyyyy to much effort. I did the BC, on my own (with some assistance and encouragement from my husband) on a whim, with 15 minutes to spare before we left for a wedding. I didn't cry like most girls do after their BC (probably the lack of time). But I did feel that I looked like a boy. Thank goodness for makeup and big earrings! Now, I love my afro and I can't believe I waited for so long to just chop off my broken hair. I always thought that length=beauty. Well, I was wrong! It never worth it to hold on to broken, damaged hair, no matter how long of hair a person has. It's freeing to be natural. And if you ask my husband, he'll tell you it's a lot less expensive! Although, now, instead of paying for extentions, I'm paying for hair products. I've become a product junkie!
