I've been thinking about not relaxing my hair for a while and going natural; only these past two weeks have I been really serious...The appointment is set and nothing can sway me.
My question is will people treat me differently because my hair is short and natural? I don't know what it will look like, not that I care necessarily because I honestly am not doing to for a guy... (most guys didn't find me attractive with my hair, so what difference would it make?)
My motives are: less money spent when in college, health conscious reasons, and lack of enthusiasm for relaxing...
And for anyone who knows from experience:
What can I expect after the "big chop" and what products & styles do you recommend?
It's just school! Lol! I posted a preview on FB and only one of my classmates had said anything, and a friend who wanted a pic, I sent it to her but no "I like it" or opp' response in a txt
Even if no one likes it, I guess it's fine...It'll be different for some people though but next it'll be ear piercings!
Thanks for all the advice guys!

That is the EXACT reason I went natural, because I am going to a college that is not surrounded by people that can do black hair and also because I rather my hair be healthy. I recently did my big chop 3 weeks ago and I LOVE it! I only transitioned for about 4-5 months. My hair is about 3 1/2 inches. I use this healthy shampoo and conditioner by Beautiful Curls, I really love the leave in conditioner, it has shea butter in it which natural hair loves! And last night I did a two strand twist but other than that I have been doing wash and gos (leaving the leave-in conditioner in). Some people might say why did you cut your hair, some people may like it, I mean my guy friend prefers my hair straight and longer and does not like to see me with short hair but like I told him, give it a year and a half and it'll be shoulder length again. Just remember do not let anyone discourage you.1
