I had originally planned on stretching 6 months and relaxing in December. My plans have since changed. I was 16 weeks post on Friday and my new growth is not cooperating. My hair has begun to coil around itself. I will take my time and unloose the coil by the next day the coils have once more appeared. My new texlax date is now November 18th which would put me at 17 weeks post. I think from now on I will be sticking to a 12-14 week stretch. I am excited to see if my hair has kept up the blunt edges from my last trim.
