I'm into my 11th month now and while my hair was loose the temptation was so great... up until a couple of weeks ago when I got some kinky twists. So far, the best thing I've done during this whole transition. It keeps me from messing with my hair, from wasting products on it (pj anyone?), shorter showers, and I don't have to worry about styling it every day.
I'm scared when I have to take them out I'm gonna see all this growth and to the relaxed ends be like, "You! Off!"
I'm holding out until April to chop though. Definitely. I've gotten this far, I can get through a couple more months.
