That sounds like you may be getting too much moisture. Are you doing protein treatments?
No, but I do use a TON of conditioner. I wash about 3 times a week using the condition wash condition method and I do my final rinse upside down and scrunch conditioner in before I get out of the shower. I didn't know you could over -moisturize your hair! I also use a curl cream so maybe I should lay off on the conditioner a little?
You can absolutely over moisturize your hair and that sounds like exactly what you have done...limp hair...no curl. You have to have a moisture protein balance for TRUE HEALTHY hair so you not only need to lay off of soooo much moisture but you also need to incorporate some protein into your hair routine. How much will be up to you and your hair. You may do fine w/a over the counter product however I personally prefer to make my own bc I can control what goes in it. So do some experimentation but definitely get some protein in your life! Lol.

I haven't experienced much breakage because I was only relaxing the edges of my hair. I'll keep doing this for the next couple of years or so until is all natural.
Congrats on being so close to your goal! I was initially thinking that anything longer than apl hair would just be too over whelming however I have been looking at Chimes youtube channel and I just adore her hair! So I have reconsidered Lol and I will probably grow my hair out to bsl curly bc with my shrinkage that will be waist length straight which I can deal with. So good luck to both of us on this growth and healthy hair journey!
