So, I decided to BC this past Saturday, Nov 24th.
I was tired of dealing with the two textures, and my dh finally agreed to it so while we were in Miami for Thanksgiving I did it.
It has been less than a day right now and I'm still adjusting to it. I went to a natural hair salon, and I told the lady that I just wanted it all cut even (after cutting off the relaxer). She said I needed to shape it, that it would look odd like that so I let her shape it. She said she would take a little off the sides and the back. I think she took way too much off of the sides, especially the right side above my ear - it looks like I'm balding there and I'm not, it was just as thick as the middle before she cut it.
I'm not sure that I like it, the length I'm fine with - I like it and would keep it this short if it were not so frizzy on top. If I part it the root is nice and defined, but right on top is a layer of fuzz/frizz. I have tons of relaxed ends sticking up all over so maybe that is causing the fuzzy frizz???
I'm thinking about just going to a barber and shaving it down to the length of the side she messed up.
Update 11/26/07 - I'm loving my hair! I love how easy it is. I love the fact that I can get my hair wet without the hassle! I love how my hair feels - I need to keep my hands out of it though : )
I might have my dh go through and trim off some of the stray relaxed ends tonight.
Thanks to everyone for the support, encouragement and advice! Especially to all the ladies at Happycurls.com for answering all my questions ; )
Update 28/11/07 - Cowashing daily, and a good moisturizing conditioner really helps. I'm already seeing a difference - my hair is a little less frizzy. I think I want to try a good moisturizing conditioner that does not have protein - hmmm I need go find one.
12/2/07 - I found one, Whole Foods Market had one that got good reviews on sale - Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose. I can't wait to try it!

The left side is not as bad, but she still went a little crazy with the scissors.
