I transitioned for a total of 7 months. Now, the reason why I didn't want to go natural in the first place was because I absolutely did not know how to style my hair. So I tried easy hairstyles like bantu knot outs, twist and braid outs. By 5-6 months, I noticed my natural growth but I also realized my hair was falling out tremendously in the back. I was stuck! I didn't know what to do; it got so bad that I figured, maybe I should perm my hair again. But, I convinced myself that I came too far to just give up. I stared in the mirror one day and said, “I think I want to cut all of my hair off.” My roommate came in the room and I just yelled, “Please cut my hair, I can’t deal with this anymore!” She responded “No” because she didn't want to be responsible for cutting off my natural hair. I didn't even want to cut off my own hair either just in case I snipped too much. I asked all my friends and a few family members to cut it but they said I should get it professionally done. Since I was in school in Pennsylvania, I only trusted to get my haircut in NY by someone who specializes with natural hair. Finally on December 10, 2011, I recall visiting my mother for a weekend.
