At least once a week, I have been hit with the same news: the news of losing relaxed hair inspirations to transitioning. Great for them, bad for me. I love knowing that there are ladies who prefer to chemically loosen their curl pattern. It's what I prefer and I love having motivation; my motivation being that relaxed hair can grow extremely long and be healthy. Lately, more of my inspirational ladies have decided to go natural, which has left me feeling alone sometimes lol. Am I the only one who still loves relaxers. Relaxers do not fall into my hands no more than five times a years. Doing so has allowed me to gain a healthy, relaxed head. Not all of my hair is bone straight; I have began to prefer texture, but not enough to where I would consider going natural myself.
This post is not to talk trash. Natural hair is beautiful. I cannot keep my hands out of my NG. I have envisioned myself with full natural many times. I have made a personal choice not to go natural. I believe that it is a personal challenge: relaxed hair can grow healthy and long. In all honesty, I have considered going natural twice since my HHJ. I take care of my cousin's natural hair because she cannot afford products nor salon visits. I have done my research about natural hair just so that I can help with hers (she is a freshman in high school). I have had to do appropriate research in order to properly care for her natural hair. For example, I use all natural products with her.
I wish all naturals the best on their journeys, BUT can a girl get some more relaxed inspiration lol???!!!! I hope I am not on this relaxed HHJ by myself, lol.
One proud and relaxed head
