I just a few days ago cut my relaxed hair off. I love it. I put some sort of gel in it everyday, the only problem I have is when I sleep on it it' gets matted and I 'have' to wet it in the morning, but that's okay because I've been no-pooing it pretty much. I dont have any problems with dryness. I'm so excited because now I just know my hair will grow so much faster because i'm not fighting it to make it striaght so my ends will be stronger, oh and I love the color and it's so soft.
