Hair Update | 16 Weeks post

I have been MIA lately, about a month again I decided I would transition to natural.

My main reason was due to the frustration when I had major hair breakage in the middle of my head. I opted to removed all the bone straight relaxed hair and just keep it fully texlaxed.

the damage that got me to cut my hair

I then opted at the end of that week that I would just transition to natural.

My hair regimen had been fairly simple

1. Weekly DC on dry hair
2. Detangle with wide tooth comb
3. No shampoo (so far)
4. Twist out daily using water and Auntie Jackie's Curl la la defining custard.

.....and that is it.

My hair has been fairly moisturised because of daily use of water and Auntie Jackie's Curl la la defining Custard.

My new growth is slowly coming through.

I have kept detangling only on wash days, to avoid tearing at strands.

I am very excited and wonder how my natural hair will be like.

My plan is to transition for 1 year, as long as my hair is as long as it is now then I can keep my twist out styles going.

Happy Hair Journeys Ladies
