Imagine if you woke up tomorrow, with a head full of beautiful curls within the 24 hour period of making the decision to go natural. No transitioning. No big chop. Just an overnight miracle! Wouldn’t that be the bee’s knees?

I have found myself drifting off into this very fantasy on many occasions while transitioning, and have been abruptly bought back down to earth again. At the same time, I have days when I think to myself ‘what is all the fuss about?’ and ‘what is the big deal about going natural anyway…it’s not even hard’. The latter usually occurs when I’m in high spirits about my hair and feeling care-free.

Well today I’m not in high spirits. I want the miracle growth formula to land on my doorstep right now!

Transitioning can be bloomin’ frustrating – the one thing that I didn’t prepare myself for. I’m not saying that I expected this to be a walk in the park, but I’m also a person who likes to see instant results damn it! Going natural is a waiting game, and what can I say – I’m impatient.

The decision to transition instead of big chop came down to the small matter of balls and the fact that I have none. I would big chop tomorrow if I sucked it up and grew a pair! Perhaps it would make this waiting game slightly less frustrating….see my catch 22 of a predicament?


No but really, the reason why I wanted to share this is that I get bored of hearing fairy-tales. Surely things are not perfect EVERY day? Sometimes it’s good to know you’re not weird for having the occasional rough patch. Or…maybe I am alone and just outed myself as the weirdo?!

Tell me I’m not alone ladies! Do you have something to rant about?
Let it all out……
