I have been trying so harddd to give up relaxers just for the simple hope of healthier, stronger hair. But boy oh boy I never thought I would actually HATE the texture of my natural hair. It’s extremely thick & coarse & not to mention nappy. No matter what I use to wash & condition it with my hair still dries hard, dry & crunchy. The only time I’m satisfied with it is when I go to the salon to get it professionally done & that completely defeats the purpose of going for “natural hair” because they’re applying massive heat. And i know for a fact I’m not one to pull off the whole fro thing. I haven’t had a relaxer since October & i have been trying to go at least a year without one, but I’m at my 6 month mark & I’m hoof absolutely crazy lol. I’m gonna try to a few more different products and what not to see if anything works better. I was getting my relaxers about 5-7 weeks apart (bad, I know) but now I see I can go a lot lower than that so I may start spacing them about 6-8 weeks. But as of now, I think I go back to my dependence on the creamy crack.
