Sorry for the wordy hair history in my previous post. Here are some pictures with brief captions.
This was me in preschool (playing dress up!). One of the few times my mom styled my hair "loose."
Me and my little brother when I was 6 or 7. This is a more typical childhood style.
Fast forward to high school. Hair has been in the relaxer cycle for about 8 years.
Some pictures from the '06 transition phase. I think both of these styles are twist outs where perm rods were used on the relaxed ends. I had about 2 inches of new growth but then….
I WENT BACK TO RELAXED!!!!
And then earlier this year, I cut it and put color and bleach in it!
I started off wearing this style straight through a home relaxer (after initial salon style).
RELAXER FREE FOR 5 WEEKS!
Picure taken earlier today. Have about 1/2 inch of new growth. Styled using a wavy barrel curling iron. A good way to mask the different textures.
Like I said before, I have really not even begun yet!
In about a month I plan to do BC. I've never had short hair before, but I think its worth it to start over fresh instead of fighting to manage two very different textures.
