How long have you been transitioning? Have you set a time limit for yourself, or a new growth length goal? Gearing up for a big chop or doing a gradual chop?
I'm not really sure when I started transitioning. For a while I was just really late for my next relaxer...LOL! Then when I made the decision to not put another relaxer in I kind of had a new growth length goal. I didn't think I could pull of a really low hair cut, so I knew I wanted 2 to 3" of new growth, but I got impatient. I started a gradual chop...cutting 1/2" to 1" at a time, but cutting faster than it was growing. Finally I got sick of trying to blend the two textures and went for my big chop. It was lower than I wanted it, but I ended up loving it.
