Transitioning Tales

Hey divas,

Last week I did a call for submissions (Call For Submissions). I basically wanted some of you and my YouTube subscribers to submit hair stories and photos for the transitioning section of my blog. Although I received some submissions, I didn't get the barrage of emails I was hoping for :-(. I wanted to be able to feature a different diva each week, but at this rate, I'll probably only be featuring a different diva each month, if that (I haven't even gotten 12 submissions yet to get me through one year).

In any case, I have posted this month's feature in the hair section of today's blog roll. Hopefully more of you will become inspired to share your story with the rest of us. I like to think of us as a sisterhood of givers and not just takers :-).

XOXO,

DPrincess28

Awww...don't worry...your subscribers won't let you down...I just don't have access to a camera right now (fiance broke it during the inaugural and I am waiting for him to replace it!)...But I can post pics via my camera-phone if you like I have plenty of pre transitioning pics but none while I am transitioning...Let me know when you need me to send them over I will be happy to share.

DPrincess28, I'm seriously thinking of transitioning without doing the big chop. But of course I'm scared, I've never had my hair natural unless it was for a moment before it got braided. Once I decide I'd be happy to make you a video to show my progression from beginning to end. BTW I love your hair.

Thank you Justeace. Looking forward to hearing your story :-).

I have been transitioning for 1 year and 10 months but have been pressing for the duration (with the exception of a weave last summer.) I recently made the decision to really go natural this summer and just found your blog after searching You Tube this past weekend. I must say, you have truly helped me in this short period of time! I have been transitioning w/o the BC and have been pretty pleased with the way my hair is making the switch. I have about 6-8 inches of lovely curls and about 1-2 inches of straight on the ends. I am debating whether to cut the 2 inches or just keep getting it trimmed. I will try to send you a picture but since I am still new to the msg boards it may take me a while. :-) BTW, I have been doing braid outs, twist outs and flat twists and am pleased with the looks. I can't wait to be able to just wash my hair and go though!

Hey, I would have loved to contribute to the submissions, but I dont have a webcam, a camera, a phone, or more importantly a transition story! lol I am transitioning, but I currently have my hair in micro braids. They have been in for over a month and a half now and I STILL don't have a lot of newgrowth; for whatever reason my hair is not growing. And I am scared to take the braids out because I dont have the money to get more, and I am curently trying to find a job and I dont think my puffy hair would be appropriate for interviews. Also, I'm still debating on whether or not I am going to cut all my perm off. So...I apologize but whenever I get all the necessary things needed to share my hair story I will definitely try to get on that!
