    Talking New member and am transitioning!!

    Hi everbody,
    I just joined nappturality a couple of days ago. I joined because I am going to do a long transition to natural(hopefully 18 months). When I was relaxing I loved doing crazy, bold things with my hair so everyone expected me to big chop...sike. I just really thought it would be a change and my hair would be healthier, and i like the versatility. I have been relaxed since before grade school so i really dont even remember my natural hair. So far I am 2 1/2 months into my natural hair journey. What about you?

    Hi Kupkakecutie88! I've been transitioning for almost 5 months now, and I'm almost to that point where I'm ready to do the bc. My initial goal was to transition for maybe 8-9 months, but taking care of the two textures are killing me lol. Right now I have a protective style, yarn twist, in right now so its okay. I'm also scared to do the bc because I don't think it will look right with by fat face lol. I've been relaxed for God know how long, I believe since the 6th grade, so that would be almost 20 years or more. Dang...did I just say that out loud lol! But anyway, good luck with your journey sister. I've only been a member for a few days as well, but so far this is a great site for knowledge and friendly people always willing to give you advice. If I can help in anyway, just ask! Take care my nappy sister! Stay Blessed!
    Live, Laugh, Love....with no regrets!!

    Hi,
    I'm new as of today. I will be 65 next month. I am a cosmetologist and have owned a salon for the last 28 years. I have always been interested in natural hair and with my clients turning to natural styles I decided to do the big chop so as to see what they were experiencing to further serve them. It is a whole new learning curve. I am so grateful for this board, all I have to do is log on. Every question I have is being answered. I'm going to the next Natural Hair Show in Atlanta for further education. So ladies, thanks again...I'll be watching!
