Transition Update: 18.5 months post
Yep, you read that right! I'm 18 and a half months post relaxer. I currently have my hair in a protective style (braids with extensions) but I am planning to take them down tomorrow, God-willing.
Click "Read More" to see more pictures and read about my regimen and styling!
What have I changed regimen-wise?
Co-wash weekly only.
Have only been deep conditioning once a month (unheard of for me and my previous weekly deep conditioning!)
I spray a mixture of Infusium 23, Aloe vera juice and water on my hair at least twice a day.
No longer baggying overnight (braids too long and scalp got itchy).
What I want to do in the summer?
I really want to start trying out some braidouts and other stretching styles on my hair.
Maybe even a puff or two!
Back to the bun, experimenting with elegant twists on the basic premise.
Try out some of my natural products with the braidouts and twistouts to see how my natural hair likes it!
I've actually become more active and started running 3-4 times a week. The bonus of this is that I know my hair will grow a bit faster! lol!
Well, that's it for now! Thanks for tuning in! Any questions, post below.

I blog about life, running and of course, hair! I'm an Altra "Team Red" Sponsored Athlete, so I will do the occasional running shoe or gadget review.
