Okay, I read this entire thread. &every single one of you is a major help! I've only relaxed my hair Twice! The first time last august when I was 13, the next one this august (14 now)so I didn't have a relaxer for a whole year, before I got the second relaxer my hair was about 70% natural (which isn't that good because that means mostly all of my relaxed hair broke off because my hair wasn't even shoulder length, &it was past that relaxed) &I wish I would've never relaxed it again cause I could've been 1000% natural now (so yes, my hair does grow fast &I'm think my hair might be shoulder length natural in about a year &a half MAYBE) Yes I'm young but I know how to take care of my hair, I know what products are good and bad for my hair, I know how to detangle care fully and all that. I've been transitioning for 3 months (since august 1st) and I already have about 2 inches of new growth, my hair type is about 3b-3c ends of my all natural hair are loooser than the rest. I moved to my moms this september, &I've wanted to go natural for awhile but I didn't want my hair to look bad and my friends to be like whooa, but since I'm at my moms I don't care what people think about my hair, I'm moving back to my hometown next year for sophmore year &I really wanted to be all natural but as you ladies say, you really don't get that much growth in a year, SO I guess what I'm asking is do you think my hair will be at least a little bit above shoulder length by next august? Also do any of you have any tips, protective styles, products for me? This has been pretty emotional for me since I'm a freshman &you want to fit in. I would just like your guys' support &yeeah, sorry this was really long, I hope it made sense. I probably have lots of errors, but oh well. Also my hair is about and inch from being APL, &when my mom relaxed my hair it just loosened about ¾ of my hair, so it all looks texlaxed excpet for my ends which are bone straight.. (i will try to put up pictures sometime soon) so I think my natural hair might blend in w/ my "texlaxed" hair, hopefully you guys understand that. Also (sorry) I can scrunch my hair &my striaght-ends kind of curl up, but the rest of my hair gets Really frizzy! &I have A LOT of breakage &shedding wich I don't know how is possible because all I do is protective styles. I haven't got my cut since august 15th? &I must admit I do have about 2 inches of split ends D: which I am going to cut off sometime this month, so my hair will probably be able shoulder length. &JaylensMami10 you have Great advice!
