Two Seconds From Shaving My Head!!!!!

Mama said there would be days like I am 4 months into transitioning and my hair is growing like crazy, that's a good thing right? Except I can't do a dern thing with it!!! I am trying to do the whole protective styles thing - you know, buns, twists, french braids - which works, but because of the two textures it is tangling and then I try to detangle etc. in the shower and it works, but then my hair is sopping wet - I am having a time!

Then of course this past weekend I went home to NY to visit and my hair was looking crazy, so I decided to get a roller set while I was up there - it seemed like a good solution at the time, but with my thick roots and straight ends, it just looked crazy and my husband wanted to take me out to dinner - I just couldn't pull it together. I cried and refused to go out - he thinks I am being crazy and said maybe I should start with trying to texturize my hair and gradually go natural that way - bless his heart, he's been reading some of the blogs so he can be supportive - but me being stubborn, I want to go full monty so-to-speak and don't want to do that.

So now that we're back in MD - I've been just wearing two french braids twisted around into a fancy bun - it works but getting my edges under control takes some work. I had scissors in my hand and really thought about just BCing - but I don't want to do that either.

....Sigh....patience, I just gotta have some patience.
