Initially I was just going up until my 30th birthday, but that day has come and gone and I am YET stretching! I decided pretty much in my 5th month to continue on with it. Following in the path of Fgrogan(youtube), sylver2(youtube/fotki)...just to name a few. These ladies have stretched for a year and their hair looks great. I will also be following some tips, suggestions and advice that I learned through youtube/blogspots/internet/research etc while on my stretch. I surely don't want to put all this hard work in with MUCH patience and it gets me no where at the end. So, I am making sure I am properly caring for my hair during this time.
For a moment there during the stretch...around the 4th/5th months I was praying and researching trying to find out what works for my hair so that I could make this stretch.(AUGHHHHHH) My hair was not working and it was a hot mess to me. MY NEW GROWTH IS NO JOKE! :) WHEW! But I was blessed to find and follow a few tips that worked for a couple other relaxed sistas and MY HAIR SAID YESSSSSSSSSS! I think I can make it....I think I can make it! And I did!
As of today, I am 25 weeks and a few days. My hair is manageable and I'm learning what works for ME. I've decided to change up my regimen a little to fit my new growth (lol) and it's working fine. I'm actually looking forward to these next 6 months with the plan I have. I'm sure I can make it...unless something arises I wasn't expecting. I'll share my updated regimen and pics in a later post. I just wanted to get something up and running on here and get the ball rolling with my blogspot.
