I am currently in the process of transitioning to natural. I have been transitioning for 7 months and am enjoying the process so far. I have been natural 2 times prior to this by doing the "big chop". I liked the look but the growing out process in with in between stage was not fun so I got bored and relaxed it. This time I plan to transition for a year or so to maintain my length. Being natural has been a health transformation for me. I believe this is how my hair was intended to be worn and it is a whole lot easier to deal with. I am embracing my naturality and can't wait until I am 100% relaxer free.
I am new to long-term transitioning. I am now 7 months in and growing strong.
