  • How does your hair "change" after you BC?

    I was reading a post about the ABC's of transitioning and one cn part talked about how your texture can change after you BC. Can anyone fill me in, and tell me if yours changed when you chopped

    I don't know if everyone's hair changes, but mine definitely got coilier/curlier months after the BC. I transitioned for 5 months, right after I BC'd, my hair was kind of straight, but kinky, with a few springy coils sprinkled throughout.

    Now it's mostly coiled with a few cottony pieces throughout, so it kind of flip flopped. The shrinkage from the coils makes my hair look about the same length it was after I BC'd.

    The first pic is about 2 weeks post BC, the second pic about 2 months post BC. Both were wash and goes with no product.

          Same here. My hair was a fluffy cloud when I bc'd. As it grew it became very coily and darn near impossible to detangle. On one hand I love the definition of my little spirals but combing or detangling is a beast.

            I'm still transitioning but cut a small piece to see the curl pattern. It is a lot different.

              Yes! Combing and detangling is a nightmare now. When I first BC'd, I could comb right through my hair with no probs!

                  I recently cut some of the relaxed hair out the back of my head. I have noticed that it has changed in those places I cut. I was hoping that detangling would be easier when all the relaxed ends are gone because they seem to easily tangle.

                    You'll probably hear this a million times, but you really won't know for sure until you BC. How long do you plan on transitioning?

                        For those that notice many tangles after growth, check your ends. It may be time for a trim. I noticed after I trimmed my ends my hair was a lot easier to comb.

                            When I bc'ed my hair was almost straight, lifeless in some areas, and suuuuuuuuuper dry. After 2 1/2 weeks of adequate moisturizing, my hair formed into very tight curls. As the months came and went, it started to change more and more. Now 9 months later, my hair in the front, crown, and upper back area is very loosely waved and the other parts are very curly. I still struggle with frizz and dryness if my hair doesn't have a great moisturizer, gel, glycerin, and water.

                              Once I mastered moisturizing my hair after my BC, my coils started popping.
