To Relax or Transition...That Is The Question

I'm so confused...Today I pre-pooed, clarified, and dc'ed my hair. I never really prepoo but today I thought I would try it out. My hair feels great! I'm 14.5 weeks post....remember when I told ya'll I was trying to stretch to 16 weeks? Well, I was going to relax my hair this coming Wed. (at 15 weeks post) because I have an event to attend on Feb. 7th. However.....I've been playing in my newgrowth basically all day and it feels so nice. The texture is very pretty and I'm curious as to how my hair would look like this all over! I see why some ladies transition....Now I'm confused as to whether I want to transition or relax... I know right!

I've always wanted to go natural, but I didn't think now was the time to do it....but now I really don't know.
What's a girl to do? This is a really hard decision...

I always have this prob when I am stretching and I am sure I will have a blog post about the same thing soon, but i always end up relaxing it. Now I know that did not help but just to let you know that I can relate.

I had planned on stretching my relaxers as well. But I started reading curly Nikki, and as my hair starts to grow, i fell in love with the curls beneath the straightness. I'm wondering what it will be like to have wash n go hair.

Good luck.

Take your time with this decision. Do what makes you feel comfortable. Transition or relax either way, neither is a permanant decision it only delays your finally decision.
