It has been a few weeks. School, work and my personal life had my full attention, and I apologize for that. I just wanted to come to you with this blog post about what's going on.
1. I am still still trying to stretch my relaxer. I wanted to announce that I am not relaxing my hair anymore until December. Do not talk about me if I do not make this goal, lol. Ok here is the logic:
I am currently transitioning to texlaxed. Some of my roots are texlaxed, but I have some NG too. However, I cannot determine what is texlaxed and what is NG. I know both are there but I cannot differentiate the two. SO, to avoid overlapping any previously texlaxed hair, I have decided to stretch my relaxer for close to nine months. I believe that 9 months will give me enough time to see the clear difference. Eventually, I want to be able to start snipping the relaxed hair away. I have even thought about stretching for an entire year, Big Chop as a natural and start over by texlaxing the natural hair and start complete as a full texlaxed head anywhere between December 2015 - March 2016. I have also considered texlaxing two more times this year and cutting relaxed hair off. I have also thought about gradually transitioning while trimming along the way. I am all over the place. I do not know where I am going to end up. In addition, I have thought about texlaxing in August and December of this year and cutting almost half of my relaxer hair off before the new year. Right now, the decision is so hard to make, so I have been considering all sides and I believe as I continue to grow in my transition that I feel like I will make the better choice for myself. Do I see myself going completely natural? I do see myself doing, but that is not a goal for me. My goal is to have a loosen curl pattern. However, I have not allowed my hair to grow out to where I could even lay eyes on a curl pattern. So that will be a first for me. I will actually see what my natural curl pattern looks like. I believe that I would go natural is my natural curl pattern is loose; however, I am unsure of the curl pattern and do not believe that it is quite loose. So we will see.
2. I am on a 60 day challenge. This 60 day challenge includes me squating 5 days a week, working on getting dental work done, take vitamins to get grow stronger nails and taking hair vitamins for 60 days. I started 4/1/15 and will end 5/30/15 and I will give an update on 5/31/15 in time for my birthday, 6/1! The goal is to have some type of life back there, to grow out my hair more and to have the remaining painful dental work done. Last year, I experienced some dental pain on my birthday. I was very uncomfortable for birthday, but I do not plan to repeat it this year. So, I will be working hard to have my teeth fixed before my birthday.
3. One day, I spoke with my mother about obtaining some braids and wearing them for a while. If you didn't know, I am counselor at a residential rehab facility. My mother and grandmother told me that they did not believe that braids had any place in a professional field. They were trying to discourage me from getting them. But I am more bent on getting them. My goal is to wear some type of braids for a month, give my hair a week to two week break and rock more braids. My goal is to stop having to comb and style my hair every morning and to protective style.
So hopefully, we will see some progress soon.
