I’ve made it to the 5 month mark and things are going well. I think I’ve trimmed most (if not all) the damaged ends now and can start letting my hair gain length again. Almost all my relaxed ends are gone and I’m just left with the texturized hair that got semi-straight in some areas […]
It seems almost every transitioning YouTuber creates at least one video with a collage of pictures that illustrate damage from their relaxer days. It’s my turn now. Enjoy… Reading this via e-mail? Click to view the video on my blog.
