I have been transitioning to natural hair for 26 months. I honestly can't believe that I was able to transition for such a long period of time. The photos above show my hair at 25 months post relaxer/ 25 months into my transiton. I really am loving my natural hair. At this point, I am psychologically preparing myself for the chop. I only have a few inches of relaxed ends left. The photo below shows the stringy relaxed ends that are holding on for dear life.
This photo was taken at 24 months into my transition/ post relaxer. I think that I am now kinda ready to cut off the remaining ends. Nowadayz I'm rocking the kinky twists that I wore on my vacation. My protective styles have been a godsend throughout this transition. If I didn't have protective styles to wear, I don't think I would've been able to transition for such a long period of time. So, I wanted to transition for 28 months, but I think I may cut my hair a little sooner since my ends are beginning to drive me nuts. I have some single strand knots on some of the ends of my hair and they don't feel nice at all. They make my ends feel so rough. I can't wait to cut them off.
If you look closely you can see small knots on my hair....ugh!
