Mjon912. Thanks I went back to relaxed because natural hair was no fun for me. When it was short I refused to wear it out and only wore weaves. When it got longer u could style it into ok looking styles, but nothing with wow factor. Washing, drying, and attempting to style ( uz failures) was an all day process and required lots and lots of heat. Currently with relaxed hair my dry time is cut in half and I can blow dry on medium and flat iron on 270 compared to blow drying on high and flat ironing on 420 and it still be poofy. In the end i was in weaves 99 percent of the time which always looked on point, lol, but got boring, not to mention costly. Others on this board have lovely natural hair, mine wasn't. I will try not to relax bone straight though so that I still have body in my hair.
