(Buffer image) Out of all the things that give me dysphoria, my hair is the most constant. My wig is a daily reminder of mistakes I made in the past. On bad days, I feel like I’m a bit of a fraud...putting on a costume.

As my hair grows under my wigs, it becomes harder and harder to wear them. I have to wear two wig caps just to contain it. Sometimes I overheat or get headaches because having to contain my hair.

My original plan was to wait until my 1 year anniversary of hormones before going natural...but I really want to start as soon as I can. I...I really hate wigs so much.

At the bottom, you’ll find a pic of my hair. I have 4-5 inches on top and 3-4 inches on the sides.

I don’t want an afro. However, I don’t know anything about straightening perms or how to do them. I know what style I want, but I don’t know how to do it. Should I wait longer? Should I go to a salon? Help! :(
