What was your reaction when you permed you hair after being natural for a long time? Did you Cry?  Im thinking about going relaxed again because I have been natural for 6 years and I am tired of the hassel.

Hey there, first let me say congrats to you for sticking out as a natural girl for 6 years. That is quite an achievement. I decided to relax my hair in November of 07 after being natural for almost 3 years. It was a difficult decision to make because I had grown to love my natural kinks, but like you, I too had grown tired of the hassle lol. So I went ahead and relaxed. I love my hair still but I still miss those curls at times. But the decision was the right one for me because I participate in alot of formal events and my hair was becoming very difficult to style but now I have no worries.
I have come to find out however that things that used to work for me when I was natural do not work for me now that I am relaxed. I have had to adjust my regimen, change products and tools but this is all apart of the learning process and I have embraced that. I am sure that you and your hair will do well in whatever decision you make.

I am thinking about doing the same...I'm scared that its just that the grass looks greener on the other side. But a wrap is so much easier then combing the tangles out and co-washing everyday & having a greasy face from using products to define my curls.

I'm glad it went well. I am thinking about relaxing to after a year of not relaxing. My hair is just too much hassle now.
