Lately I've been visiting a lot of sites/blogs for girls/women with natural hair or transitioning to that point. I have been growing mine out since February of '07, too chicken to cut it all off (since i have a large head, lol). Luckily, I've found that I haven't really experienced THAT much breakage at all... but there has been some. I'm guessing that I still have 4-5 inches left of relaxed hair left before I can deem myself completely natural, but i'll get there soon!
I'll post pictures and explain my hair type/texture later on. Be back soon!
