Some days I really want to transition to natural. Some days I don’t. More and more though, I keep returning to the idea. I do not plan on being relaxed forever, simply because I don’t see myself ever going to stylist again and the image of a 70 year old me trying to relax my hair is just silly.
There are other reason’s I’ve been playing with the idea of transitioning. First is the idea of a daughter. I’d want her to love her natural curls and call it corny but I’d want to support her and teach proper hair care methods by caring for my own natural hair. Second, I’m just really tired of the two textures, counting down weeks until I relax. What keeps me going is the anticipation of seeing how much I’ve grown and retained at the ned of my stretch. Third, I will admit I’m envious of my moms curls! I love playing in her hair. She accidently became natural (she stretched her relaxer, relaxed ends broke off, natural hair kept growing, and I complain every time she mentions a relaxer). I don’t remember what my natural hair looks like because my mother relaxed my hair at a young age but she claims it was even curlier than hers… this is childish but I want curls to play in too lol. It would a long term transition for me, chopping off my hair and starting fresh just would not be for me! It would be too traumatic, and my BF would kill me haha (♥ you baby!)
So those are my reasons. Who knows, maybe I’ll forego my touch up that set for November 7th and just let it groooowww.
Q: Any currently relaxed ladies feel the same way I do? Do you think about transitioning every time you stretch?
