Hey Guys,

Do any of y’all remember way back (maybe 2 weeks ago) when I finally “scratched” the BC itch by going to a local natural salon “Too Groovy” for a free consultation?  Well, I went back for my first appointment last Thursday and got my hair straightened and trimmed.

I will not name the stylists who did my hair because I don’t want to hurt her business, but she burned my head!!  Right in the back, at the nape of my neck.  I actually picked a scab out of there this weekend.  WTF?  I haven’t had one of those since my perm days!

I won’t be going back there.  I think it’s safe to say I don’t recommend her (the salon as a whole is pretty nice though, so I’d give them a try… just maybe without heat).

All of that aside, I got a very nice cut.  My hair is now even, and the shortest it’s ever been.  I have yet to wet it so I guess I won’t find out just how much relaxed hair I still have until then, but I’m guessing there’s not much left at all.

It’s also a sure bet that I’m going back to my old stylist for any future hair cut/ straightening services I may need.  I’m shooting her an email as we speak.

Peace, Love, and Hair Cuts

I didn’t BC.
I decided that I just wasn’t comfortable with that length and figured that I would wait until either December 21st (my birthday) or April 1st, 2010 (a little over the 2 year mark) to cut off my relaxed ends.

In the meantime, here’s what I did:
I went to a local salon called “Too Groovy” and asked for a free consultation from one of their stylists.  “Too Groovy” specializes in natural hair and does not do any chemical treatments besides color, so their stylists tend to know what they are doing.  Anywho, I went to the stylist and told her what was going on with my hair and how I was feeling and she looked at my hair and the general health of it.  After seeing that I was about half and half and didn’t want to BC too soon, we came up with a plan.  I’ll go there at least once every 6 weeks to get my hair trimmed and set in a natural style, and she will just continue to trim until all of the relaxed hair is gone.  The first appointment is next week, at which time we’ll do a cut to sort of even things up.  I’m very excited.  She knows I don’t want to cut any of my natural hair until I make it to shoulder length unstretched, so that’s what we’re sticking to for now.  This way, I don’t have to BC at all!!!  I can just keep trimming until it’s all gone!!!  This is an option that I didn’t even know existed, but I’m happy that I’ve found it.  It seems like the right direction for me to go in.
