I want to join! I relax my hair, but I haven't straightened with a flat since I think November and have just been letting it air dry and wearing it into buns or braids or just cute updos. If I want to wear it nice, I'll roll my hair. And I've been growing out my hair starting in May or June and by the end of the summer I went from middle of my neck and thin to a little bit below collar bone and super thick. I haven't had my last relaxer since November (I can go a while without another relaxer, my hair's not really kinky) and I hope to at least get to my belly button by the end of the year!
