Hey to my buddies! @Luprisi @baddison @divachyk @DominicanBrazilian82 @Nix08 @Cherry89 @Jobwright
 
Hi buddies. First, sorry this is so late, but Babygrowth I am so excited to hear that you have a little one on the way.

I relaxed last Saturday. I have been really gentle with the section of hair that I had to cut down to an inch. It is growing back nicely. I am a slow grower so I am really happy for the inch that I gained in that area during the 16 week stretch. It is now ear length. Also, even though I neglected the rest of my hair, it was ok. No trim needed and still APL. I won't take that treatment for granted though. I will be kind to the longer hair too during this stretch. I plan to relax again on April 26.

How is everyone else doing?

Hi ChocolateCupcake! Thank you! Me too! Glad to hear that patch is doing better! I decided that I will probably relax in my 2nd trimester because I can't deal with my natural hair. Its too much. I'm starting to not look forward to my wash days and thats not me. I'm getting a sew in in January then in March it will be touch up time!

Hey buddy! I'm on a mission for a banging body this year as well. 2013 was a bust for my hair :sad: Therefore, I'm starting over for 2014.

EnExitStageLeft and Cattypus1 good luck on your transitions. I did a mini chop and cut my hair back down to pixie length. Relaxer day is this Friday.

KiWiStyle and SunySydeofLyfe, you guys seem to be relaxing around the same time.

Happy New Year's ladies!

I relaxed at a salon on December 7th. Motions Regular was used, I'm going to ask the stylist to use another type next time because it burns when it's time for her to rinse out. I never had that problem with my initial relaxer (at another salon) or using box relaxers. The two times that I went to my current salon for touch ups it burned. I don't have actual scalp burns but it's tender for a few days to a week, which I don't think is normal.

10 weeks will be Feb 15th, I'm considering going until March 1st. That'll be 12 weeks. Any buddies planning on relaxing around that time.

Hey Ladies... cheering you on.... I'm 9 weeks post but don't know when I'm relaxing...

1. Joico Moisture balm makes my 9 week post hair feel like 4 weeks post.. heheee..
2. I'm still shedding much more than normal so I plan to clean my diet, drink lots of water, take vitamins and back off relaxer for the next couple weeks... Depending on how well that goes, I may decide to transition... Will keep y'all posted.

Happy New Year, ladies :grin:

Please post your stats so a buddy can find you:

How many weeks post are you right now? Will be 3 weeks this Saturday (Jan. 4)

How long are you stretching? I'm aiming for 12-16 weeks, so in March or April

Any other info? I'm a former natural veteran (6 years), completely new to the world of healthy relaxed hair. I did my own virgin relaxer, and will definitely be a self-relaxer. My goals are to hit BSL/MBL this year, and WL-Whip 2015, but I seem to suffer from sudden bouts of scissor happiness and I need to be stopped :look:.
Hair stats are: 3c/4a/4b , medium and thick strands, high density
I already have one relaxed buddy coolsista-paris :grin: , and eagerly waiting to grow my relaxed family :lots:
