Hair Update #1

Hello everyone!!!! I know it's been a while, but I finally completed graduate school and now have my MS in Social Gerontology.  I thank the good Lord for leading me the entire time during this journey.

Now to my hair.....well believe it or not, I am actually 50 weeks post relaxer/texlax.  When I first started stretching, it was going to be my usual 6 months stretch and then texlax my hair.  However, this time I decided to see how long I could actually go without wanting to pull my hair out.  So, 9 months looked real good and I was having no issues.  Then I thought, can I do this for an entire year?  So, I decided to test myself, and I must say it was not as hard as I thought it would be.  My new growth has kicked in something fierce, especially when I was taking hair vitamins.  Now that I'm at this 50 week mark, I am loving my natural texture and how healthy my hair feels to me.  The only issue that I'm dealing with is keeping these edges under subjection lol.  I'm good for a few days, but when the humidity kicks in, it's all over.

Here are some pics of my texture with no product:

So, what's next for me.....I'm not sure if I'm going to hit that one year mark and keep it moving or texlax my hair.  I definitely won't do anything immediately because I want to see how my hair works out after I've hit my goal.  I'll definitely keep you all posted.

Until next time,

~Blessed Tresses~


  1. Love your hair texture and congrats on your Msc

  2. Congrats on your Masters! Your hair texture looks lovely! 50 weeks post wow! I am currently 27 weeks post, and as you it hasn't been that hard, but I wonder how it will be at 50 weeks!

    1. Hi Yvonne, thank you so much. Congratulations on being 27 weeks. I think the key for me was finally recognizing what my hair likes and does not like. I'll will definitely stay posted to see how you're doing.


I love hearing from you...Have a blessed day!
