My Relaxer History

before my healthy hair journey, i use to get relaxers every five weeks. that was 11 relaxers a year. i am surprised that i have any hair left, lol. but i am doing better. my first stretch of this HHJ was of eight weeks. it went smoothly. i mean i was used to the NG, because i was battling a very bad grain of hair, so i thought. i learned that i didn't have a bad grain of hair. i just wasn't taking care of it to the best of my ability. now that i am stretching 10 and 12 weeks, i am finding it hard to understand my hair. my NG tends to kick my behind. i am having so many problems with detangling and laying my NG. i have tried the infamous scarf method, tying your hair down with a scarf for a period of time to lay down the NG. its a learning process. i have to continue to figure out effective, but less-manipulative ways to tame my hair and continue to look presentable. me and mom have gotten into horrible arguments about how my hair has looked after i am so many weeks post. i was eleven weeks one day. my mom hated that my was rolling up so bad that she stomped and yelled and screamed and just threw this horrible fit about how i look horrible. it was horrible. i hated being in my house when i am stretching. my mom and dad hates weave so weaving it up is usually out of the question. i am actually practicing how to scalp braid so i can just put my own braids in. but this is my relaxer history.

  1. Hi Miss Alexis!! How are you coming along with the braiding? I am still reading through your blog posts, so maybe I will find my answer. I have been doing the same -- practicing off and on with cornrows. I've been wearing half wigs off and on to keep from manipulating my own hair so much when the NG is extensive...
