Exactly two weeks from today, on August 1, 2010, I am going to relax my hair after 15 weeks of stretching. I must say that after 13 weeks (where I currently stand) I am so suprised that I lasted this long. The truth is, I wanted to relax almost two weeks ago. The only thing that was stopping me was that when I was at the edge and was going out of my mind and decided that that day was going to my cut off relaxer day, I would have washed that day before. I have this rule to at least wait two days after a wash. I cannot wait. I have been scribbling on paper my routine for my relaxer that I will share next week.
More relaxer talk: My next relaxer would have been October 10th, only a seven or eight week stretch. But I am seriously considering doing an even longer stretch: 20 weeks!!! I know, its crazy, but its for two reasons. ONE, while stretching this relaxer, I have definitely more NG that I usually have. TWO, I have a personal goal to only relax my hair four times a year, well not exactly four. However, I want to be under five. I have already relaxed February, April and now soon to come August. December would the end of my stretch, and I am seriously considering it. I have two emergency cut out points: my seven week checkpoint, October 10th and my 16 week checkpoint, November 21st. But I am shooting for 20 weeks. More info to come.
