So yeah...the new hair guy wanted me to go natural. Or texturize. I chose texturize. I was extremely unhappy with my hair. I suffered lots of breakage because of the two textures of my hair and I'm just really not the person with the level of patience necessary to be successful.
So...I went back to my old faithful, Affirm. I ordered a 4lb tub from Amazon with all the stuff that goes along with it and it arrived last night. This morning?
I BUSTED THE HELL OUTTA THE THICKNESS.
I used a normal lye relaxer instead of a mild no-lye relaxer so I could deal with the new thickness that is my new growth since I stopped eating gluten. And now? I'm happy again. You have no idea. I like my hair straight. I like my hair to move. I don't like the amount of work it takes to get it straight and to move when it's not for real relaxed.
New guy is awesome for anyone who wants to transition into his version of healthy hair. Old me just wants her hair to look like she wants it to look. GO.ME. My hair is now straight again. I won't do the rinse again because he was totally right about that. I'm going to grow it out about 3 more inches and keep it this way forever.
Or until I change my mind again. LOL!
Any relaxed hair people still out there? Anybody who tried the transition thing and decided it wasn't for them?
