Took down my hair to re-braid and add more Shea butter. The hair released easily except for one braid. I'm back in business. The ends feel firm and full, but not thick like a perfect hemline. Baby steps. I told myself I would make an assessment in June. I've decided to go until December, but am open to a possible trim between now and then. I prefer trimming my hair when it has been straightened. I may straighten in August. But it really depends upon how I feel. I still have about 6 kilograms of Shea butter that was gifted to me. I think I am going to be good well into September, if not into December.
