16 months post relaxer
Hey Guys, I'm back!! I have a lot to share with you. First let me say that it's been just over 16 months since my last relaxer. My hair is certainly happier than it was previously in my transition. Dry hair is definitely a thing of the past. My new goal is to work on the back of my hair. The hair at the back of my head is fine and therefore prone to splits. I guess I'll have to baby that area. As a whole, I still have no regrets about transitioning and am 'patiently' awaiting the days when I will be fully natural. A lot of people assume I am natural, from looking at the picture on the left, I can see why. Fake it til you make it, right? lol. There are a few things that I've noticed since I've progressed further in my transition.... 1) People think I'm younger!!! In Jamaica, two people thought I was 16 :S... I'm 21!! There's no harm in looking younger but 5 years younger is pushing it... I feel like Benjamin Button. 2) Men pay a lot of attention to women's hair. I never noticed this before. I've received quite a few comments from men in regards to my hair. Any naturals of transitioners experiencing/experienced this?
