I recently went from transitioning to relaxed after I transitioned for 2-3 years, now that I have my hair relaxed I am considering to start my transitioning journey back natural. I miss having my hair in a high puff, twist out etc. even though I enjoy playing around with my relaxed hair but not as much how I love the versatility of my natural hair.
Why did I start my Transitioning Journey
My main reason for considering to start transitioning is that I am not pleased with the way my hair is done when it is being relaxed and I experience a good amount of breakage and less hair growth.
I do have to style my hair on a regular basis, so I would buy several different styles of ponytails to pin onto my hair when I put it in one. I really do miss my high puffs and I wish to achieve it someday.
The last time I relaxed my hair was on the 6th of April and normally my hair would take about 6 weeks before I have a good amount of new growth, so I would say my transitioning journey started around the 9th of May. I am currently 13 weeks into my transitioning journey and so far I have only done one protective style. The first time that I transitioned my hair I had worn protective styles such as weave and braids but this time around I am giving my hair a break from weave and braids and wearing my regular ponytails and twist outs until I find someone that can style my hair as I desire.
