Well from experience, I can say that it was a great decision for me to make. I feel much more confident having experience having shorter hair and being not so dependent on length. Even though I transitioned for about 6 months, when I finally did decide to BC, it was still shorter than I ever had it- it felt great & easy! So my advice would be to not be so afraid of cutting your hair. Yes it does take some getting used to, but it will grow back. I would also say keep your hair moisturized and stay away from heat! I have only used heat once since stopping relaxers last august. opt instead for rolling your hair and letting it air dry or do braid outs, twist outs, bantu knots or protective styles. I have a list of sites that I think will help you along your journey I will post in a few.
* If anyone else has any advice, please feel free to add on!
