Yes my hair was a mess when I started.
I am no longer relaxed, but the first 2 years of my hair journey I was growing out overprocessed choppy fried hair.
You can do it!
Like Vee said- find a regimen and stick with it.
Also you may want to take a daily supplement for internal health.
Don't spend a bunch of time watching your hair. There is that saying about a watched pot never boils or something like that
Take pictures every 3 months and you will be amazed at your hairs progress.
I save these relaxed pictures just for reference points for my friends that are trying to take care of their relaxed hair.
The start of my relaxed journey
1 year later with a steady regimen
