I am sticking to texlaxing. I was going to wait until January to make a decision but I changed my mind. I'll go natural somewhere down the line but I'm tired of the extra puffiness and shrinkage. Most importantly, I am tired of dealing with my new growth. lol I want to have easier wash days for a little a bit. This stretch has been rather smooth. Much better than I could ever imagine actually. But I'm over it. So come August 22, I will be starting another stretch. For how long? Who knows. I am going to continue with my original goal of having healthy relaxed hair. I want to be among the many ladies who have achieved what many outside of the hair journey world deem impossible. I was contemplating going natural because I love how full and thick natural hair is when straighten. I wanted that mainly because my bone straight ends were haunting me. lol Anyway, nothing about my regimen is changing and I'm still well on my way to making it to full BSL.
