A little over two years ago I decided to transition from relaxed/texlaxed hair to natural. Although I enjoyed my relaxed hair, I also enjoyed my color treated hair. Although I was able to maintain fairly healthy hair, I started to feel like the combination of the relaxer chemicals and lighteners used for highlights were not good for my hair over the long haul. I made the decision to transition because I believed that I could achieve a straight look without the use of chemical straighteners and this would give me a little bit more freedom on the color side, lessening the stress on my hair.
It’s been 26-months since my last relaxer. I have not been blogging about my experience but I will share some of the things that I’ve learned along the way. I know that there is a ton of information available on the internet about black hair care, however, I hope that some of the things that I’ve learned can add to the discussion. HHJ!
