Update. My transition from relaxed to natural is going so well. I have hat days but I have really good days that make me so happy I decided to take this route. I stepped out on a limb and did a Bantu Knot Out and here are my results! I LOVE IT!
This is definitely going to be one of my go to styles as i didnt need rollers just hair pins and I was able to let my hair dry 90 percent of the way then twist it up. With my braid outs i get better results when I braid wet and it never dries by the morning.
Anyways...I am past the six month marker and I can see a year in the horizon.
Yes that head band has huge different colored fake rhinestones on it. Its so tacky but I love it and so did the girls I worked with today!!!!
