    58 weeks post (with nothing to show for it), set to relax in two weeks but still debating salon or self relaxing and which relaxer to use.

    I will be 12 weeks post Friday.

    I’m going to the salon because I just don’t want to tackle it myself. She uses Affirm.

    14 weeks post. I'm not sure whether I want to relax or just go right into PSing.

    The ONLY reason I would relax is to have a good starting point to properly gauge my progress. But then I'm stuck with loose hair. And there is too much going on right now to be worried about my hair.

    I'm tempted to push on and relax sometime in April when the weather changes. But then, at the EOTY I'll only have a comparison from April to use. Hmm.:scratchchin:

    I’m currently 7 weeks post, and plan on stretching another five weeks.

    And I’ve finally decided that I will self relax when the time comes. Now, I just need to decide which relaxer I’m going to use, and gather the supplies I need.

    I’m 20 weeks, not sure I can take it anymore as I can hardly comb through this new growth. I may relax this week

    17 weeks post tomorrow.
    Still planning to stretch until April. I just don’t have the time or energy to deal with loose hair at this point so it’s staying in simple cornrows that I bun or throw a wig over.

    Whoa!! @sunnieb , I can’t find the other, general Relaxed Hair Thread! I feel really crazy right now. Lol. Are you able to find it? I went back 10 pages and did a forum search. I will use my bookmarked page to bump it but I want to make sure I’m not crazy first. Lol

    I am 5 weeks post relaxer. Depending on the amount of new growth I have another 5-7 weeks until my next touch up.
