As of the 7th August I am now 4 months post relaxer *dances*. I was told by my hairdresser when I went for a trim a month or so ago, that it gets easier once you get past 6, only time will tell if he was right. On the right is an image of my progress thus far.
My biggest problem at the moment is probably laziness. I haven't washed my hair in nearly 3 weeks... something that most people on a hair journey would turn their nose up at... in my defence I'm on an intensive language course and it is taking up a lot of my time. An alternative could have been to co-wash because it takes much quicker but I don't like the result. I've co-washed in total 3 times, yes 3 whole times and each time I've wondered what the fuss was about. I feel like it leaves more build up than I had to start with, I guess it's just not for me.
