    Thanks! I usually only go up to 12 weeks. I was trying to stretch until October but I was having too much breakage.

    Thanks :)

    I relaxed over the weekend and went from 100% natural (I was natural for 2 years) back to the creamy crack! I got a texturizer (same thing as relaxer, just left on for 5-7 minutes) using PhytoSpecific relaxer. The first photo is the texturized hair, the second photo is pre-relaxer. Sorry for the bad pics - my camera is out of commission so these were taken with my phone.

    Sesi - sorry I'm like 2 weeks late on this response (just saw it today), but I decided to relax again because I was sooo over being natural!!! LOL - no but the long and short of the story is I went natural because I've always had a nice, thick head of hair that stayed around SL, or a little longer. I figured if my hair could hold up pretty well with relaxer, then it would do even better without the chemicals and could really start to gain some length. WRONG! My hair was actually more difficult to handle because I exercise daily AND like straight hair, so straightening my natural hair every two weeks and trying to look half way decent on a regular basis was a challenge (can you say SSK's?). I discovered LHCF and the hair world in March of this year and learned about caring for hair in general expecially length retention, the importance of moisture, etc. and decided that it would be best for my hair if I went back to a relaxer primarily for manageability and versatility. Sorry for the long response! HHJ
