Transition Update: 14 Months Post Relaxer


Hey everyone! Hope you're having a great week so far!

Decided to come by and give you all an update on my transition.
So, I am officially 14 months post relaxer and things are going well.




A few things that I'm noticing:

* I have a few pieces of hair that are fully natural. Mostly in my crown area. I honestly don't believe it's breakage and think it's new hair growing in.

* My natural hair gets dry a lot quicker than the relaxed portion- glycerin mixed with aloe vera juice is the only thing keeping it moisturized

* I almost have 50% natural hair!

* I will be trimming in late February so I will then have more natural hair than relaxed

* I have been seeing little pieces of broken hair so a trim is def needed! Waiting until I do twists to trim though

* I dread wash days and long detangling sessions

* I can't wait until this transition is over! I'm really trying to enjoy this journey, but I am getting impatient

The twist ends at the line of demarcation.
