Hey Guys :D. I normally do my transition updates bi-monthly but decided to make an exception. I'm now just a few days past 17 months post relaxer... Yup, I'm still transitioning. Where did the time go? Well, to be honest, as fast as time appears to be flying by... I feel as if I've been transitioning forever. On the plus side, once you find what works for your hair, the journey gets easier. My two favourite products at present are S Curl and Shea Moisture Transitioning Milk!!! I could rave about these two all day, used together these products make my hair feel the BOMB.com. I will be reviewing the Transitioning Milk later this month, stay tuned! Having the right products made me decide to extend my transition to 24 months from 22 months. It all sounds like a bunch of roses, right? Well, yesterday, I nearly reached breaking point!! My hair just did not want to cooperate with me when it came to styling. I glanced at my hair, then at my scissors and then back at my hair. I didn't want to make any rash decisions so I decided to sleep on it. I woke up today feeling recharged and ready to continue. I think I've reached the stage where my two textures decide they want to fight each other... It's like Jet Li vs Jackie Chan up in there! It's definitely time to give myself a break and flat twist or plait my hair. I've only got 5-7 months left of my transition now so I might as well hang in there.
I pushed my hair relaxed ends back to get an idea of what I'd look like if I chopped... please excuse my face *cringes*. My finger shows where my natural hair reaches at the front. Not bad for 17 months worth of growth, Eyy? My natural hair is growing in quite thick... Imagine, all this time I thought my hair was thin :S.
