On July 26th I entered the hair salon and vowed to never get a relaxer again. My reasoning was simple, I was tired of paying for it. Since I was 13 I’ve gotten a relaxer and my hair has shown no improvements of growth or health. It’s not for everybody and I’m one of those people. I wanted body, length and healthy hair again. This process has been annoying so far mostly because transitioning takes time. My hair is extremely thick and the process of transitioning causes your hair to be very tender. I wake up some mornings loving the growth and other days I want to throw a relaxer in it. I have to style it constantly and make sure it’s well oiled so it won’t fall out or become dry and brittle. I think it’ll be easier to shave my head and call it a day. So far it has been 17 weeks since my last relaxer and I don’t regret my decision. Within a year I will look like a totally different person. I’m excited to document my results as the months go by. The oils I’m currently using are coconut oil which helps with conditioning and dryness. Jojoba oil keeps my hair shiny, hydrated and soft. Sometimes I combine the two since jojoba oil is a little thick. I also created a concoction with Shea Moisture conditioner, jojoba oil and coconut oil that I use after I wash my hair as a leave in conditioner.
