Things people do not tell you:
1. When you are transitioning
It may take an instant or it may take a lifetime but you will not really fully be happy with your natural hair unless you can look in the mirror and know unequivocally that your hair is pretty.
2. When you are a veteran
You may still be battling your hair even after 10 years if you did not deal with part 1 above.
3. When you are a blogger
You will get very strange emails from very strange people with very strange spelling and very strange requests.
