My mother is trying to talk me into relaxing due to my inability to have cute styles while I am stretching. She wonders why won't I go back to what I used to do : relax every five weeks, flat iron my hair every other day, wrap my hair everynight. These horrible habits have cost me my length and I refuse to go back to these wicked ways. I feel relieved and refresh after giving them up and "starting new" with different methods. It is a good feeling that I know that these were dangerous to my hair's health and I had the will power to not go back to it. I have not wrapped my hair in about 11 weeks, which isn't a long time for some, but it is long to me. Unfortunately, I feel like I may have to wrap my hair on relaxer days, I am vowing that will be the only day. I am making the vow not that I will wrap my hair once per stretch and that the wrap will not proceed three to four days. Giving up the flat iron was so easy. At first, waiting eight weeks instead of five weeks to relax was very hard. However, I have been able to go ten and twelve weeks without one. This stretch, fifteen weeks will be my longest stretch to date and I am so excited about it because I have not had many problems. I have encountered a few things: I cannot detangle my hair, I cannot style my hair, I am too impatient, my hair does not like to be touched while wet. My hair is the weakest when wet, so I try not to manipulate it, especially while stretching past four weeks. My NG is plentiful and defined with curls. You can definitely tell by first glance that my NG is present. I have about an inch of NG, cannot wait to see if I have made APL yet. I have been on my HHJ since December 2008, starting at SL and I have yet to make APL. Over these next five weeks, I am going to start planning my relaxer regimen. I am going to continue my castor oil and my Biotin, both has helped so much. After my August relaxer, I am definitely going to be on a mission to finish strong in the year of 2010 with full APL hair and length proceeding to BSL. I cannot wait, I am so excited!
I am double excited to get to blog about it!
