Things people do not tell you:
1. When you are transitioning
Get to know your natural hair, feel it touch it and compliment it. Negative thinking (its hard, too curly, what will I do) can be replaced by positive feelings (its thick, full, soft).
2. When you are a veteran
It is fine to be bored or even frustrated with your hair. If you are at the point where you want to do something drastic and think you may regret it just start braiding or twisting into a protective style. If after 6 months you still want to do the drastic change - go for it. It is only hair, in the worst case scenario, it will grow back.
3. When you are a blogger
Never be afraid to say what you think, the more frank your blog is, the more people will be drawn to it. At the same time, if you do not have a thick skin, start growing one, there will be plenty of personal insults directed your way even if you say things in the nicest way possible.
