    Hello all!
    I'm sick and tired of relaxers! I hate the growth, shedding, breakage, more growth roller coaster. I end up on that ride no matter how conscious I am or how good I take care of my hair, scalp, and ends. It seems the relaxers are just not meant for me and definitely not meant for such a long term. I've had relaxers since I was 7....so that means I've been damaging my hair for FIFTEEN YEARS!! :noway: It's had its run....It's time for a change...I'm ready to free myself! I want locs! Beautiful, colorful, HEALTHY LOCS!!!

    Any tips for the transitioning process would be great and well appreciated! Thanks in advance and wish me luck!

    Thanks so much new2natural1! I'm so excited....I just wonder what everyone will think. My own mother probably doesn't remember my natural hair lol. I told my boyfriend yesterday and he was very supportive and just wants to be there with me ever step of the way! I woke up this morning and he hid all my box perms! :P

    I did the Big Chop today. This is the first time I've been natural since I was 7 as well (21 years of chemical fire cream). My hair is ULTRA short but I'm lovin it!!! I got it done in a Wal-Mart salon and the stylist though I'd lost my mind. As soon as we wet the natural hair beautiful tight curls emerged and I don't know where they came from. I'm asking myself why I didn't do this sooner! Congrats and feel free to take the plunge!!

    Wow congrats! You're so brave! I wish I had the nerves to do that.... You should set up a free fotki and track your progress
