Wow!!! I have been transitioning for 14 months and I really see the difference in the two textures now. It really has me itching to big chop but I want more length so I must wait. I am very excited because I see my curl pattern and I can feel the soft and thickness of my natural hair. It is funny because I said I would wait to transition for two years before I big chopped but now I am saying maybe around 19 to 20 months....I will keep you posted but for now...STAY TUNED FOR MORE!!!
