Today is Oct 31, 2012 and after a 2 year transition (June 2010-June 2012), I am now 28 months post relaxer and 4 months post big chop (BC). I decided to reflect on my journey thus far and think about my hair goals for the future.
It’s been nearly 3 months since I’ve done my BC and I thought I’d share some texture shots! Since my BC, I’ve learned a lot about what my natural hair will and won’t do; her likes and dislikes. I’ve learned that I have low porosity, high density and elasticity natural hair. Knowing about the porosity alone helped me determine which types of products and moisture methods would (or wouldn’t) work for me. Check out my post on determining porosity, density, and elasticity.
April 1st (also beauty day) marked my 22 month transitioning anniversary…Two months left until the BIG CHOP! I am super excited!
Yesterday I co-washed my hair, did a protein treatment using Aphogee, and DC. I then did a Twist-N-Curl, since Saturday marked the last day of the Protect Ya Ends Challenge. I plan to wear my hair out this week after 3 months of not being able to.
