It’s Just Hair!

Soooo hair update!! I’ll just leave this here…big chop

Yep, I cut it all off! If you read my 1st hair post, you would know I was transitioning to texlaxed hair. Texlaxed simply means underprocessing your relaxer. Well when you transition, you have three different textures in your head which is prone to breakage. I had my bone straight relaxed ends, my texlaxed hair in the middle, then my new growth toward my scalp. I was tired of dealing with the 3 different textures so I mustered up enough courage and cut it all off.

Let me tell you, it felt so good to cut the dead ends off!

I decided to texlax my hair to where it was close to natural, hence why I look like I’m natural. I love it! The main reason I texlax my hair instead of going fully natural is for the manageability and for the simply fact I am not ready to go natural.

I am very happy with my decision and love my hair at whatever length it is. My goal is to have healthy, thick hair. “Health over Length.”
