Time for my monthly post

It really does seem like I only post once or twice a month these days. The truth is I have grown a bit weary of my hair. Well, not exactly, I still love my hair but it's the texlaxed hair that has been getting on my nerves. When I started self relaxing, I ended up with a 70%  relaxed result. I was really happy with it. In 2012, I found that the ORS relaxer gives me only a 50% relaxed result. I usually wash it out the moment I feel my hair begin to break down as I did in the past, but now, the result is not as straight. I am thinking that ORS changed their formula.

So what do I do? I have ends that are texlaxed but still straighter than the rest of my hair. I would hate to do a corrective on my hair and I can't start relaxing it straighter because then I'd have too many textures, I would probably look crazy, especially if I attempted to airdry. I must admit though I am in love with the 50% straight section. Now that it's been a year since my relaxers have been turning out this way, my hair in the section seems so thick. I love it especially when I compare it to my ends which are now thinner in comparison.

I have no intention of cutting my hair. The difference in texture makes my ends look terrible, but they have maintained the blunt cut, so I know it's not breakage. I will be holding onto the straighter ends for a bit. I need to reach BSL this year. Once I do, I can begin cutting off the straighter ends, but until then I'll be dealing with new growth, 50% texlaxed hair and 70% texlaxed hair.

Oh and by the way relaxer day is next week Saturday! I believe I will be 11 weeks by then.
