Its been a year since I got my last relaxer. I didn’t stop getting them on purpose. I just always kept getting my hair done and felt there was no need to get one. I never let my hair out longer than a day or two. And now, a year later, I’ve made the conscious decision to attempt to take better care of my hair. I had a lot of heat damage and though there is growth, its not where I would like it to be, health wise. This Sunday & Monday is the first time I did something to my hair and wore it out in public without a wig. It was cool. Im still not too comfortable with it but we’ll see how this goes. I guess you can say I am “transitioning”.

My hair isn’t even purple/red/pink anymore 😕 but at least I can see growth and health.
Still craving a relaxer and short cut 😅 but it’s been well over a year since I got a relaxer. Maybe I just want a shortcut. Long hair gets annoying lol. I just don’t want my hair out. Yea, I know I need to cut them ends off but in due time.
I think what I love about J.Cole going to Ferguson is the fact that he didn’t have to announce what he was doing. He wasn’t “dressed up” for the media. He just went and made moves. Compared to a tweet I saw from Kimora Lee Simmons about her reaching out to pay for the funeral expenses. Granted, that is a great gesture and commend her for it because I’m sure his mother needs that assistance but you don’t need to announce it. Makes it seem not genuine. Even the bible says don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing (Matthew 6:3-4).
