Relaxed....natural??

I am trying to figure out if I still have some relaxed ends on the shortest part of my hair. I have been CG since I joined here about June 2006. I probably hadn't had a relaxer in about 6-9 months at that point. My canopy is the shortest part so I know now when I go to the hairdresser that the least amount of hair comes of that part. My hair was past BSL less then a month ago and now it is barely shoulder length. I do seem to have some difference in texture where the canopy is concerned but don't most of you have that too? The top front, even the front of the canopy...the part I know is natural...is very smooth, I have parts like this in my length too, mostly a lot of underneath parts and some side pieces. But the further I feel down the canopy the rougher the texture gets. I used to think that this was just my hair and that I had to deal with the canopy being rough...but now that I realize I haven't been transitioning as long as I thought...is it possible that it's just the last of the relaxer? And that I might have the hair I've dreamed of after that is all gone?? That would be great.

Has anyone else lost track of where the relaxer was thier hair? I mean I was able to wear mine curly even when I relaxed so it got a little difficult to tell the difference. Sorry to be so long...but I'm curious!

Back on Cones,so now my routine is,wash with Deva No-Poo every other day or so. Occasionally use 365 sulfate free,maybe use low sulfate shampoo mixed with conditioner once every two weeks are longer. I condition with Aussie Moist or HEHH. I style with a little GF TN,and finish up with tons of GN Pure Clean Smoothing Cream. No frizz...slippy, happy hair.
Given how long your hair was, the short period in which you've not used relaxers, and the fact that your hair has not been cut *that* short, it seems likely that there is still a bit of relaxed hair at the ends.

Your hair looks really nice, by the way!

So it is really exciting to me to think that maybe the few problems I get with my hair now may be because I have rellaxed ends in part of my hair. I recently looked at old pictures from when I was a little girl....my hair was beautiful, bouncy, shiny and smoothe, I don't know why I ever touched it. But to think I could get that back with a few more inches makes me very happy.

I guess my hair is real healthy because I can't tell where the relaxed parts are...not really. Maybe just the last two inches. I wanna have a goal in mind for when and what to cut cause I am anxious to see how/if the rest of it changes when all the relaxer is gone.
