For the past three years I have been on and off with transitioning and going natural. I went natural around March 2010 and I've been trough hell and back with my hair.
Me in Dec 2009 before I went natural a little past shoulder length
My natural hair in May 2010 it was just a mini chop to my relaxed ends
The main problem with my transitioning was the fact that my hair always fell out a lot. I didn't have bald spots or anything it was just shedding a lot.
Got a little puff bun thing
Texturized and grown out hair dye in Sept 2011 my hair was at its max length here
the cut mow-hawk in March 2012
Here was a mini guide of what I have done to my hair over the years. I relaxed my hair around the end of 2011. I wish i still had my hair like the pic of the texturized hair. It was so soft then! But after a while I didn't take care of my hair and it felt like a Brillo pad so I just cut it off and did the mow-hawk style. But now the mow-hawk is grown out and I want to do a big chop and really take the time to take care of my hair and enjoy my hairs natural curls. When I was natural my wet hair had amazing curls and I really miss that! It was definetley a nice experience for me to juggle between natural, relaxed and texturized hair. But now I am going to have an actual teeny afro and enjoy the journey once again!
