i have been thinking

i have thought transistioning before, but i could never go through with because i consider my relaxer as my "way out". it how i get to control what i can't control, my NG. i have thought about it a couple of times. my hair doesnt grow that fast, thats why i have been thinking about going natural. i feel like my hair will be stronger. my relaxed hair is so weak and thin. my NG is always stronger and healthy looking. i envy that hair, lol.

this is my plan. i am going to continue to relax my hair. i am going to continue to find out how i can make my hair stronger. that is my mission. if i can find out what i can do to make my hair stronger, i have no need to transistion. but if i still have this weak hair, i am going to transisition. i am going to go about another 8 months looking for a way to strengthen my hair. that gives me until my march relaxer. i have not find a way to strengthen my hair by then, i am going to start my transistion in march and transistion for two years. i feel like its a good plan. i probably will not BC, i will trim until my relaxed hair is gone. i would probably trim every two to three months, probably one inch a trim.

its exciting to think about it, but when i look at my hair, i get a little discouraged because i would love that healthiness now, that strength, that length.

like i have said before, i am on a mission to strengthen my hair. i am doing my research and i am reading and comparing my notes. i am so glad that i am keeping notes so that i can realize what is not going well with my hair. like dye, its not for me. i believe that is what hurt me three years ago. i am one hundred percent sure that a rinse hurt my hair's strength. i put a few in my hair a few years ago, and my hair has been going down hill ever since.

but i am going to continue until march. so i will give updates between now and march to see where i am going with this process.

  1. I totally understand where you're coming from on this. I went through several instances of severe frustration during this past stretch (one day short of eleven weeks!!) with my NG. Some days I felt it would be best to just transition and eventually get rid of the weak, relaxed hair. Other days I just couldn't understand what I am doing so wrong that I'm not seeing progress like others.

    One thing I will mention about NG getting dry and matted/difficult to manage -- Hawaiian Silky 14-in-1!! I don't know WHAT is in that, but I sprayed some on my NG in an act of desperation one night, and my NG did a 180. I could run a FINE TOOTH comb through it with ease.

    I do believe, like you, that putting in color has damaged my hair. Not so much the color itself, but for me I think it was my relative ignorance toward my hair's health being doubly-processed. I did not moisturize and condition as often as I do now, and I'm sure that is the reason for the breakage I experienced in March of this year....

  2. at least i can say that herbal essences long term relationship has done wonders for my NG. i would recommend that for anyone who has matted NG. i thought mines were the worst, lol. the unheard of NG. but i had to realize that they are things out there for my hair, i just have to find them and make them work for my hair. i hope that your experience wasn't a big one and that you have it under control now. i have been on this HHJ for seven months now, and i feel like i should have had a hand of things by now.
