Just to recap...if you remember last year I decided to stretch my relaxer for longer than my usual 6 months. Well, my stretch just kept going and going, until I found myself at.......DRUM ROLL please.....17 months post relaxer. I never really thought about going back to my natural hair, but it just happened and my hair is thriving so much. I will not lie and say I have not been tempted so many times to relax instead of deal with my hair. The crazy part is my hair is not that difficult to deal with in its natural state, but being a creature of habit made me want to cave in to temptation.
Now, I am in no way against relaxers, but I am all for doing what makes "you" happy with "your" hair. So, for me right now I am very happy with my hair!!! I made this decision based on the state of my hair and issues that I was dealing with such as breakage, shedding, and overall health of my hair. I think this is the best decision I could've made for myself at this time. I continued my mini-trims and have basically cut off all relaxed ends. I will keep you all updated from time to time during this year.
