Ended 9 Month Stretch

I finally got a chance to relax my hair after a long stretch.  I was pleased with the results and the health of my hair overall. My hair is definitely thicker than it has ever been, but it's hard to tell when I flat iron it.  I will try to add some pics with it styled later this week since I have a job interview and plan to wear it curled.  I do plan to trim it later this month (most likely after my first wash) so that my hair is even across.  It always grows like this no matter how much I trim it.  However, I have a question...can someone tell me a good rinse or dye to use to cover gray hair?  It's not a lot, but I want it gone lol.  Thanks for any suggestions.  Have a blessed evening!!!

2012 Update

Hello friends...I know it's been a while since I've posted anything hair related, but I've been stretching. My stretch was supposed to last for 6 months, but I just kept extending it since I was having no problems.  Ends up that it's been 9 months since I relaxed my hair.  I'm not having any problems with breakage or anything, but omg the thickness from the new growth is serious. 

My hair has definitely grown during this stretch.  The only thing I have done different this time while stretching is I've been moisturizing with my Hawaiian Silky 14 in 1 (as usual), but I decided to try the Doo Gro Stimulating Growth Oil.  I added some of my favorite oils to it such as JBCO and Lavendar.

So, my plan is to end my stretch tomorrow and I will post some pics of my hair after.  My focus for this year is to make sure my hair is as healthy as it can be and growth comes next.  It is my plan to trim if necessary because I haven't since my last relaxer. 

Anyway, that's all for now...have a blessed evening my friends!!!
