When I was younger my hair was a big too much for my mom to handle it was sooo thick and curly, even getting a relaxer at a young age didnt help it just tamed it down a little bit.
It’s ironic but the good traits I learned for my hair, didn’t even come from women with my type of hair. Those techniques were the start though.
I just trimmed my hair little by little till all the relaxed stuff was gone. Since I always wore it short it didnt take long. I didnt really wear wash n gos at that point though, I was constantly straightening my hair. The flat iron became my best friend. Id flat iron my hair sometimes 2 times a day to keep it bone straight and flying in the wind.
On top of the constant flat irons I was coloring my hair a lot. I wanted it to look like victoria beckhams when she had her hair short and blonde. Thats actually the picture I took to the salon. The first time they were too scared to take me as light as I wanted, the kept looking at my hair then walking away and talking about it as if they were scared of my hair! I was like what in the world....hahaha
and added weave :) again super fake!! I took the weave out, added more highlights...
I loved my hair at this point in my life. This was about april 2010. In june 2010 trying to blow dry and flat iron for an event going on, it was taking FOREVER because my hair was so thick...I caved in and got a relaxer that night. I instantly regretted it. My hair felt so different. Even before with all the color it didnt feel like this, I knew I had made a mistake. It didnt really break off it just felt completely different. Heres my hair relaxed..
