When I First Started Growing out my Relaxer


Wow! It all went by so fast. It was hard to believe that I could reach the length I’m at now. Yes people, I’m talking about my hair, my lovely mane. It all started around August 2011 when I stopped using a relaxer. It was the best choice I’ve made so far about my personal appearance. Don’t get me wrong I was scared. I had a relaxer all my life. But change is good. The beginning was a bit stressful dealing with two different hair textures, thick coarse hair at the roots and thin straight hair at the ends. With patience and care I can say I’ve arrived. I’m a certified naturalista!

If I could do it all over I would have purchased lots of conditioner. It helps with transitioning hair. My comb slides through my hair easily with conditioner. It would have also helped with the two different textures. So if you’re a “newbie” to this I think you should stock up on conditioners. It’ll save you a lot of headache and frustration. Also don’t be afraid to get your hair wet. I honestly think keeping my hair wet and moisturized helped it to grow. Dry hair breaks easily so think moisture, moisture, moisture! I encouraged anyone who wants to grow out their relaxer to keep going and don’t give up. Pretty soon you’ll be loving the compliments and enjoying your long locs. Good luck!!
