**sorry for the question overload **
 
Thanks, Kesshia_b. 
 
I mostly kept my hair in twists and braids.  My relaxed and natural hair did not play well together and would tangle everytime I tried to let them hang out together.  I had to keep my hair stretched and separated into sections. 
 
I didn't use any heat because I didn't want to dry out the delicate line of demarcation.  For me, moisture and low manipulation were my focus.  All went well unless I was rushed and ignored those two things.
 
Also, finger detangling before getting in the shower or gently using a jumbo rake to detangle with a head full of conditioner, CAREFULLY, was helpful.  Before I started doing that, I was still in relaxer mode and I was losing hair in the shower like crazy.  I learned to be more careful quickly.   Even so, I tried not to stress over any of it. I kept reminding myself that I would cut the relaxed hair off eventually and not having to deal with both textures would be a breeze.  And it is, actually.
 
I wanted to hold on for as long as I could because me with short hair?  It would've been a sad sight.  I wanted to hold on til the end of this year but, I could see my natural hair getting long and I was tired of tippy toe'g around the line of demarcation.  But mostly because my relaxed hair and natural hair was night and day.  I LOVED the thickness of my natural hair and it made my relaxed ends look sickly.  There was no need having hip length hair if I couldn't wear it out because of how sickly my ends looked.  So, I talked myself into chopping.  And am SO glad that I did.
 
I hope to be back at HL by the end of next year.  Meantime, I'm njoy'g  my fully natural hair AND its shrinkage.
 
Good luck to you with your decision.  And, I'm always willing to be a support, if ya need me.  I make a pretty good cheerleader.  Clap

Thank you for answering . And I truly believe my hair grows when I LEAVE IT ALONE . My last perm was a bust and seeing my natural hair I was in love .!. I was just wondering alot of ppl do so much when their transitioning iwas wondering if I had to do more .. But you have proved that EVERYONE do not have to do all of that . I am going to keep my hair in braids , low manipulation styles and moisturized and use your tips . I been reading the natural site like crazy :) I am not a cute site with short hair either so I KNOW I can't big chop ! But your hair gives me hope !! Thank you so much and your hair is beautiful you are def an inspiration .! Thanks for helping with my decision !! I want my natural hair back .! I will keep coming back here when I get discouraged !!

Beautiful hair! Heart I always play with the idea of transitioning but I just can't seem to commit to it yet. Definitely inspirational to see your pictures though! Clap

Thank you, Ladies.  I'm always glad when this thread pops up.  I get to relive my reaction and joy all over again.  I am cheesing like nobody's business. LOL  I don't think I would've ever gone natural had I not been inspired by so many beautiful natural heads around here and all the support given.  Thank you, all! ClapClapClap
