Yep.  Growing my natural hair is definitely different from growing relaxed.  I'm feeling like my hair is getting bigger and curlier.  Baggying my hair at night really sets off my curlies.  I know that I'm not going to want to flat iron and possibly mess up my newly discovered curl pattern. My wedding anniversary is tomorrow and I'm refusing to flat iron.  Flat out refusing. I guess at some point I'm going to have to give rollersetting some real thought. I just can't handle being under a dryer for too long.  Ok.  End of ramble.

Gurl, I bet those curls be poppin soon as you take that baggy off! And Happy early-Anniversary! Clap
I hate rollersetting my hair, it seems  like it takes forevvverrr..Embarrassed and lets not get started on the drying timeConfused... I wonder how much a hair salon would charge just for a rollerset and dry. Like if I wash and DC my hair at home and go to the salon just for a set..LOL ( yes, I'm that lazy ) Maybe I should just invest in some flexi-rods.

Thanks.  I'ma be up in a wig tomorrow. LOL I just don't feel like doing anything else.
 
And yeah, it takes my hair waaaay too long to dry under the dryer.  And that was my relaxed hair!  I don't even want to know how long this thickness will take to dry.  Sitting under there always bakes a headache in for the entire day. I wonder if I can get away with rollersetting with a soft bonnet dryer?

K. Finally got my pics together. Going to copy & paste:

Starting Pics (You can see where my setback happenedCry Think I broke even more hair strands since last month compared to the 11/17/12 pic. The center usually was shorter due to my 1st setback last year getting to MBL, and now the right side is too. Clinging onto the remaining strands because I'm curious to see where I would have been had I not had a setback. I'll even it out later):

Hope you enjoyed your anniversary! @Njoy, also did you give in and do the rollerset??Big smile

Started applying sulfur/olive oil mix 2 days ago. I'm going to continue applying the sulfur mix every two days. And Just use castor oil once a week (SAturdays). I want to start ghe-ing but I think that might be a little to much. I also left Vo5 in as a leave-in, and my hair loves it! Im still co-washing.
