#1: Transitioning for 5 1/2 months
My last relaxer was December 2010 and I've been keeping my hair braided, in kinky twist since February of this year. When I took my braids out yesterday I tried my first Bantu knots and I love it. I have about two and half to three inches of new growth and I can't wait cut my relaxed ends off (which is alot). My original plan was to let my hair grow out for a year, but I don't know now. I may just keep cutting it gradually.
