16 Weeks Post Relaxer

So, I am officially 16 weeks post relaxer! This is my first 16 week stretch with-out the assistance of extension braids. BUT...for the last 2 weeks I have been braiding my hair up. After I took my braids out last Thursday, I rocked a braid-out for 2 days, then I prepooed/washed/deep conditioned and braided my hair right back up on Sunday.

There are a few reasons why I have braided my hair the last 2 weeks:

* It's easier to moisturize and seal my hair
* Less manipulation
*It stretches out my new-growth so I am easily able to style for the weekend

Back to the stretch
I am so ready and anxious to relax my hair. One of the main reasons is because I need a trim, badly. I would like to cut off at least 1.5 inches of my bone straight, before hair journey ends. I know I have the option of blow-drying and flat-ironing to do so, but for some reason I just want a touch-up.
So...I don't think I will be stretching to 6 months...we'll see.

*I know I have been thinking about going natural for a while now, but I don't think I'm going to take the plunge until I can completely commit.
