I'd like to start off by saying that I was looking to see if this already existed and the only I found was back in 2007 so that's why I started this one. I wonder if anyone is either thinking about doing this or attempting to this and it would be nice to have a little thread of our own to share ideas, trials and triumphs with this tricky process. And let's not mention new growth and two different textures we're going to have to deal with. And anyone who has done it successfully, PLEASE do share your stories and regimens. Happy Hair Growth! PS) A little about my hair journey. I Big Chopped in early May '09 and relaxed the hair so I could rock the Rihanna/Keri Hilson styles. Soon after this, I quickly saw the benefits of having cut my hair and starting from scratch, BUT I totally regretted relaxing it after the BC. In addition, I have gradually gotten the hang of managing my new growth and I've also succeeded at finding a regimen that best suits my hair. So, you can imagine how much I wish that all the hair in the pic below was a fulll head of natural hair, and thus it lead me to wanting to at least try transitioning without having to BC again. Hope I succeed, but at least I'll have given it a shot. Update 2014: I did a second big chop and am on a natural hair journey that i love even more this time around!
