Well, I'm about 4 months in now. A few years ago, I went without a relaxer for a while but I definitely forgot what it was like. Man, the struggle is REAL! My wavy roots are definitely showing which is a good sign but at the same time, the rest of my hair is still "straight" so trying to disguise my wavy roots is getting challenging. I'm trying not to use any heat so headbands have become my best friend.|
I workout 3-4 times a week and dealing with my hair after working out has become my biggest challenge. I've resorted to wearing a dry-fit headband from Sally's Beauty supply. I leave it on after my workout until my hair and the headband has dried. From there, it's somewhat manageable. I've also began the regimen of co-washing with Olive Oil Replenishing Conditioner every week. My go-to hairstyle right now is curling my whole head with flexi-rods. This prevents me from having to fight and comb out my hair and it does a good job of disguising my roots too. I'm trying to hold out for 2 months before I put Senegalese twists in again so I'm crossing my fingers that I can make it!
It's Time For A Change
I'm not a girly girl and I don't know much about how to take care of my hair properly so I figured it's about time I learn. I am in my 30s now so my plain ponytails and wraps are played out. It's time for a HEALTHY change

|Well, I've decided to go natural. This ought to be interesting. Don't judge me but I must admit, I've never "properly" taken care of my hair. I lucked out and got a decent grade of hair so as long as I did the minimum, it looked ok. Well, now that I'm in my 30s, I figured it was time I try something new, make my hair look and be healthy, and get rid of my boring ponytails and wraps. With all the workouts I do weekly, I tend to sweat in my head a lot so I need to figure out what products and processes I should use. I'm clueless right now but hopefully I can learn quick fast and a hurry what I need to do. My last relaxer was 4/4/13 so I'm on my way!|
