I am new to this a well. I haven't had a relaxer in about 6 months. I am trying to find a good hairstyle to wear to work everyday. I have found that twistouts don't work very well for me. My ends don't hold the twist well (I guess because they are relaxed). 
I am attempting to co-wash every 2 to 3 days. I have noticed that doing this the last week has kept my scalp from flaking so much and its more manageable (to me anyway).

I really need to look up some styles for my hair. I'm not liking my look at all after taking these twists out. Not sure how to handle this much new growth. Still unsure if I'm stretching or relaxing so I'm trying to get used to fuzzy roots and I'm also trying to stretch until 9 months post hopefully i will know what i want to do by then

I've had my twists in for about 2 months now... I plan on taking them out within the next 2 weeks... I should be about 5 months post. I hope I can push through this time. To at least see my texture and just give it a try. After I take my braids out I think I'm going to keep my hair in plaits and wear a beanie everyday for like a month... Or as long as possible/until it's warm out... I want to try to transition for at least a year..I usually don't make it past 4 months though

Im 4 months into my transition..I plan on getting havana twists in a month..keep them in for 6 weeks, take out, get more put in for anoth3r 6 weeks...by then I'll be ready for my Big Chop..which will be around 8 months post relaxer...these past 4 months I have focused on my regiment with deep conditioning weekly, cowashing weekly, my oils and my butters...Ive been doing roller sets (on dry hair) and twist outs to manage the two textures....I havent had ANY heat whatsoever in 4 months..air dry only....I sleep with a bonnet every night..Doing this process in the winter has really taught me alot about my hair lol..

I am 3 weeks into my transitioning process.  i was natural for almost 2 years previously but then I gave up.  This time around I'm more comfortable and knowledgeable in the process.  So EXCITED to start my hair journey!!!

I was a member on this board previously but lost my acct info.
Anyways, i have been going back and forth mentally these past 2/3 years about transitioning. The longest i stretched would be about 4 months.

I'm stretching again now, last relaxer was august 30. I got twists down my back put in for my birthday this month. When i take them out i should be about 6 months post. Hopefully this is the boost i need to make it past the 4 month mark.
Scared and excited
