    Talking Big CHOPPED yesterday!!!

    I got up yesterday morning and I was like, "I wanna cut my hair today." That was like my FIRST thought. I ignored it at first because I was trying to long term transition and I planned to chop 08-26-2011, 19 months post and the day after my twentieth birthday. I will be 5 months post tomorrow. I did the chop myself and I am soooo pleased. My hair is nothing like I expected, but everything I expected at the same time! It was amazing washing my hair for the first time... It's soooo soft! The only problem I have now is styling. When my hair is wet or has conditioner in it, my curls are really loose and big (not BIG BIG, but like the size of a sharpie or smaller). When I let it air dry, it frizzes up and I have a fluff ball. It's still soft, but I was wondering if there was a way to keep my hair shiny.

    Curly hair just plain doesn't shine like straight hair. Straight dark hair shines b/c it's a smooth surface that reflects the light, like a mirror.

    Oils and silicone will give it some additional shine, but you may already know that many people avoid silicone.

    I've always read that natural hair doesn't shine, it has "sheen." Either way, I did a search for you and found some threads that may be helpful.

    Thanks! That was before my cut. It's waaaay shorter. lol And I had a black rinse in my hair before I cut and it's still there. So, now my hair is dark, but it will be much lighter once the rinse is gone. =]
