I’m not sure that I decided to do a long transition. It was more like I decided not to do a BC. I love long hair. I’ve always had long hair. I love wearing ponytails and buns. I needed this to still be an option.
I thought it would be a lot getting used to not only a new texture, but a new length. Nope. Too much change for me. I thought that when it grows to the point where I have like an inch or two of relaxed hair left, then I’d cut it.
At this point I’m about 60/40. The natural hair is finally winning. Some areas, like the back of my hair, are more like 85/15. There’s just about an inch or two of relaxed hair left back there. It’s pretty tempting to cut a lot of it off now, but I’ll wait a little longer.
The reason why I created a blog is because the challenge is going to end soon and I don’t know what will happen to my posts about my hair journey when that happens. My blog will allow me to hold onto that. In addition, I’ve encountered some great people along the way and I think we all need each others encouragement and support, so it would be great to stay in contact once the challenge ends.
