Hair Help!

So I’m still deciding whether to transition or not.  Some days its easy, just like normal and others…well i just don’t know what to do with my hair.  I have about in inch and a 1/4 of new growth and I can see a definite difference in length.  I’ve been trying to keep heat off my hair, only using heat to blow-dry(using a heat protectant).  I done a lot of research and gotten good advice from others, but I’m still not sure I’m up to the challenge.  It’d be great if all I had to do was wake up one day and miraculously have beautiful, natural hair.  I know eventually, in due time it will be that way, but the road is long and the load heavy.  i just figured I’d drop a quick word from what was on my mind!  Let me know what you think if you have and comment, suggestions, or just advice in general.

I say just do what you want. If you love having beautiful straight hair then by all means relax but if you want big curly hair and you feel you are ready for the transition period then go ahead,
I've been natural for awhile and had to do another big chop on april 10th of this year because I had lots of heat damage and color damage that dried and fried my hair. I love natural hair better than all the chemicals and for me its more low maintenance to have natural hair. for others it may be difference so I'd say just follow your personal tastes.
