I thought having relaxed hair was supposed to make things easier? I'm not sure how - ESP if your hair is bone straight - it's so hard to do a quick rinse in the shower, throw it up in a bun, and go. Even if you let it air dry in a low pony, wouldn't it be mostly straight?
When I was texlaxed, I would wash at the gym, scrunch in some aussie leave in conditioning mousse and GO. Maybe if more black women knew how to be more " hands on" with their own heads, they wouldn't feel so helpless when it came to taking care of it.
I think that's a huge part of the problem. Most black women are so dependent on hairdressers that their style has to last an entire week, maybe two.
