I wouldn't say that I have damaged hair. That part is good but I do have dry hair. Since I moved to an area where I am not happy with salons, I am forced to do my own hair. SCARY! I have never been one to do my own hair. I have a special talent of breaking it off. Well I cut it all off when I first moved here thinking that caring for short hair would be easier. For me that is a task. So I am growing it back out. I decided that I will hold out on the heat and relaxers. I am going to move from relaxing every 8 weeks to every 12. I have been looking at a few styles, even half wigs. I have never worn one before so I am really curious how this is going to turn out. I have been regular with my vitamins. I started to pre-poo. Which makes my hair gorgeous!!!! I haven't tried the co-washing yet. I am still trying to understand this technique. If heat needs to be avoided. When I wash my hair mid-week, I will HAVE to put some sort of heat in it. I mean I don't have to but I refer not letting my hair air dry. I'm not not letting go of my grease neither. I don't understand that concept. If we lotion our skin to prevent dry ashy looking skin, why not do the same for our scalps. Their are oils out there that are not heavy. Though, I love my shea butter. I use shea butter at least once a week. I use scalp conditioner as needed. I am blessed to have hair that grows fairly easy but I want to know how will my hair react to my new regiment. Living healthy is also having healthy hair.
So here are some pictures of my hair relaxed and not....
Ignore the goofy look please. This is me no relaxer. I needed my bangs cut. This was the beginning stage of going natural. My ends are relaxed still. I didn't do the big chop
My lastest hair cut growing out:
When I first got cut it all off:
