I know it sounds crazy right?? A full natural being envy of a someone going thru a process that most hate to endure. I have to say though a part of me really envies you ladies because I have never actually gone through my transition. For example, the very first time that I transitioned for an entire year, I wore my hair in braids the entire time. I took them out every 3 – 4 months, washed and blow dried then put them back in. I had no knowledge of healthy hair practices, of hair regimens, hair boards, hair blogs, or even a natural hair community! I basically did it because I wanted to.
Fast forward to my 2nd transition. I only transitioned for like 4 months and 2 of those months I had braids in and then I chopped my hair off. I never actually got the chance to experience my hair in all of its stages and if I knew what I know now, I def would have transitioned much longer than I did. I have never gone through the struggle and the headache that most transitioners do because, well, I never had to!
As CRAZY AS IT SOUNDS I have even entertained the thought of perming my hair and transitioning JUST so I could go through the entire experience… crazy right? I thought about it for like a week and then decided that yea, I didn’t want to do that. Lol..
I think that’s why I am so excited about other people’s transitions because I never got to experience dealing with the two textures.
Oh well those days have come and gone for me so I won’t even be revisiting them. Just a thought…
