I relaxed my hair! Yes I know, chemicals are bad especially for my hair type (kinky hair), but as I had been stating in my previous updates, my hair is very thick and takes a lot of time, effort and product to be tamed. Even though I enjoyed seeing my natural texture (cute ringlet curls and even the odd zig zag strands), it was not enough to make me want to maintain the current state of my hair.
I also wanted some more versatility with my hair. Twist-outs, braid-outs, twists and even just wearing it in a puff got very boring for me. It’d take hours to prepare my hair, which included washing, detangling , moisturising and twisting, or what ever else I planned to do for the next day. With my schedule, the only time I put in the most effort to my hair was when I felt like or had something special coming up, because it just took too long to do that weekly.

|How I choose to style my hair a few days after. I really like this part here. May be my new look :)|
|I was trying to get some waves, so I did some cornrows|
|I kept these in for 2 days|
|Results of the braidout. I really liked the waves. This is actually 2 days after I undid them.|

|So I washed my hair and it came out cute and curly!! Pretty cool if you ask me. (wash and go)|
