I'd say they are both high maintenance but I'm enjoying the versatility of natural hair over relaxed.  Plus my hair is the longest its ever been being natural so I get to wear long hair styles that I never had w/ relaxed.

 Low for me, I don't have different expectations of my hair from what it is unless it's being put in a specific style, and even then i'm just not fighting it, I go with the flow at all times...

I'd say it's kinda med. maintenance because we dont wash our hair daily and we can wear styles that last a while....it's just getting your hair back in order after you take your hair down from whatever style it was in.

I agree with this. If it's in twists or braids or a twist out it's obviously low maintenance, but them wash/detangling days?Stern Smile
*Gets 1000 yard stare* On wash days sometimes it is a hot mess about an inch above my roots in this one little section.Angry

Other than that, it's all good.LOL

Very high maintenance. My biggest concern with relaxed hair was keeping it moisturized. Now I worry about that plus tangles and knots, humidity in the summer, stretching, ,detangling, etc...

Plus with my relaxed hair I basically knew what a style would end up looking like. With my natural hair I can spend hours doing all the mentioned steps above plus twisting/braiding and wake up the next morning to God knows what. Ughhh that just grinds my gears.
And lets not forget those days when you wake up to hair that is smushed on one side of your head.

Its wash day for me.

At the moment, my natural hair is less maintenance. I really don't do much to it other than wash, blow dry, and cornrow it.

No. It leaves a thick white film in my hair that has to be stripped with shampoo. It didn't want to wash out with any other product. Plus it didn't mix well with other products.Dead
