We have an announcement....

Mom2KurlyT has decided to transition to natural hair!

I have been thinking about it for a while now and I've decided to do it! Thank you to Nikki of Beads, Braids & Beyond for posting this awesome topic: Should Mommy Be Natural Too?

It has been 8 weeks since my last relaxer and I have about 1/2 to 3/4 inch of new growth. It took some convincing to get the hubbs on board because his main question was "what is it going to look like?" To be honest, I don't really know. I haven't been natural since I was 12! This is definitely an opportunity for me to "walk the walk." Thank you for those of you who have supported me in this decision and for those of you who think it's a bad idea, oh well! It's MY HAIR! Stay tuned for updates in my transitioning. Wish me luck!

Here is a pic of my first transition style: The Braid Out
Sorry for the blurry pic, I took it with my phone. Blame my unsteady hand!


  1. That is amazing! Congrats. I look forward to following your journey. Make sure you post in the CN forums too! :D

  2. Awesome! I hope you love it! What a great example for your daughter, too.

  3. Congratulations! I know how big of a step this is, as I decided officially to do it in Sept. '09. It does get tempting to go back, but look @ you baby for inspiration!

  4. Congratulations on your decision to be natural it is so beautiful...Good LUCK on your JOURNEY...

  5. @Beads, Braids and Beyond: Thank you! I will definitely keep my CN family informed!

    @Dreamer13: I hope I love it too. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous...LOL

    @LongLeggedLife: Thanks for the support! Are you transitioning or did you BC. I'd like to see your progress.

    @Tonya: Thank you! Are you a natural?

  6. Congratulations! I can't wait to see your journey.

  7. I'm still transitioning. I did put a pic on my profile. I don't know how well you can see my actual hair. I won't lie though I am getting the BC itch lol, but the fear keeps me putting the shears back down.

  8. That looks so good on you!!! Welcome to the world of transitioning, I am currently 9 months in!!!! My daughter was one of the motivating factors in me becoming natural.
