Hello my name is Natasha. I was 16 when I transitioned and bc'd. I transitioned from may 09 to dec 09, that was 8 months of craziness. I dealt with the growth pretty well. Over the summer I got braids so it would be easier to manange my hair. After school started I couldnt stand the growth and permed hair. It was all driving me crazy. So the day after christmas I decided to BC, which my mom did it for me, after my bc I immediatly went and got some kinky twists the following day. I kept those in for 2 months and then got some braids.

I know you're probably didnt wear your hair out at all.

Surprisingly no I didnt. I just kept it hidden till my 3 month mark. I then got a lace front wig but it started getting hot out and the wigs werent my thing... I finally felt comfortable wearing my hair out. So i went to school the following Monday happy and proud, but as most highschoolers are mean and ignorant...I was laughed at and talked about. I felt good but then I felt hideous. After a month or so my hair truely started changing and doing its own thing. And now I've been 4 months and Im almost 5 months and I love my hair. It isnt the length I would like it but It is growing so fast, that I cant complain.

May 1st I got my hair flat ironed and trimmed...well it looks but lol. and I can see how healthy and pretty it is. I really just wanted to see my hair and how much it grew and oh boy it grew alot. I honestly dont have anything bad to say about my transition or after my bc. I think that things like this are good for us because we learn to love ourselves more and more and we see our inner beauty. I truely love myself now. I dont think im any less than the permed girls with the long hair, only because I used to be one of those girls and I didnt even feel pretty then. I feel that going natural changes your whole mindset and look on life and just being 17, I have learned so much.

This month marks my 1 year for not putting any chemicals on my hair. I will be one yr from my bc in dec and I cant wait. Since this whole change, I have made a youtube page in which I talk about hair and my hair and even though Im young I think I actually help some people. If you enjoy my newly natural story please check out my youtube channel : tasha32793 and my blog

Being natural is the best thing God could have done for us women. We truely are beautiful without all the makeup and weave and all the excess stuff we put on ourselves.

Was it difficult or what?

8 months isn't bad. It took me almost a year and half to be all natural! It was painful. I kept wanting to put my relaxer back in because it grows so long. Problem is it also grows thin.

Fast forward 4 years...all natural and thick as I don't know what.

Now, if I could only get a new flat iron *sigh (a really good one)...any suggestions?
