So, I’m about 18 months post relaxer and I believe I am finally at that point where I am over dealing with two textures. They say you know when you’re ready and I think I’m ready. In fact, I only have about 2-3 inches of relaxed hair left and actually have set an appointment to get them clipped.
Every time I talk about cutting my hair, there a couple of loved ones that tell me to straighten to see how long it’s gotten before I cut it. I keep telling them that I don’t want to put heat on my hair and what’s the point of seeing how long it is if I’m cutting these scraggly, relaxed ends anyway? Also, I fear the idea of my curl pattern being ruined before I can even fully enjoy it!
Did anyone straighten their hair in the transitioning phase of relaxed to natural? How did it affect your hair? Is it worth it to do so?
