Many have inquired about, alluded to and even predicted (smile) where am I headed with this long-term relaxer stretch. Am I transitioning to natural hair is the million dollar question.
Moment of honesty though – when the transitioning question is asked of me, I often wonder the “why” behind the question. Are you really concerned for the health of my hair (hope so)? Are you looking for a long-term relaxer stretcher or transitioner to identify with (hope so)? Or let’s be straight up, are you looking to divorce me for the next relaxed hair blogger (hope not). Please don’t side eye me. I’m just being honest. My hope is, you’ll hang in there with me no matter what route I take. It’s about healthy hair. Right?
When I first decided to stretch my relaxers, I never knew I would end up at 63 weeks post relaxer but now that I am here, decisions need to be made which I have struggled with and continue to struggle with. This video addresses my thoughts associated with the current state of my hair and whether I will be maintaining my relaxed hair or possibly transitioning to natural hair. I also share an informal length check photo and reasons for my relaxer stretch. Lastly, the video addresses some random comments made about my brand and my hair via social media. Enjoy!
