Hi everyone! So sorry for the loooooooonnnng delay. I started a new job and have been traveling as well. So drum roll please.... I got braids at the end of January. I couldn't handle the two textures any longer. The plan is to keep getting my hair braided and in between braids I plan on doing good conditioners and slowly chopping off permed ends. I have included a picture of my braids. I decided to go with lacing (aka invisible braids) because the style is versatile and I like that it looks like a weave and not necessarily braids.
Getting braids has definitely made my life much easier. I have been able to save hours of time on the weeks and just in the mornings because I don't have to slave away with my hair. I am so excited about moving closer and closer to being relaxer free. Thank you so much for all of the encouragement I have recieved thus far!
Also, thank you to everyone who has been leaving comments. I am trying to catch up and respond as fast as I can to each one.
