My hair is on my mind

and my mind is on my hair...
Ok, so as of late ALL of my hair thoughts are of cutting off my relaxed ends!!! I think it will be so liberating and so much easier to work with....It will be 10 months next week, longer than I thought I would make it transitioning.
I am going on vacation to the Dominican Republic in early May for a week & I would so love to BC before I go and just be free and wash & go...but I am afraid to be without all my hair support products so early in the all natural hair game. I was debating going to get some braids with hair added before I go, but I have mostly decided against it. I am currently planning just to get my Mom to do cornrows in 2 layers before I leave and just leave it like that for my days chilling on the beach & add a kinky half-cap for evenings.

Random hair thoughts

So I am nine months into this and I am always running my fingers thru my new growth. I am so tempted to BC but I am trying to wait until I have enough length...enough length for what I'm not 100% percent sure yet LOL. I would prefer to be able to at least pull all my hair back into a bun/pony.

I absolutely love my texture...right now. I do have concerns about my texture appearance once I BC...will it curl up, coil up, kink up or just hang there.

Then the hair comments I already get, which I know will only increase and become more vocal once the BC is done. "Your edges are kind of rough", "Hey nappy", "I hope your hair won't look like ____(someone else natural whose hair ALWAYS looks dry) like you just rolled out of the bed & came to work".

Still lovin' my Maxiglide!

I was kind of wanting straight hair, so I decided to Maxiglide this week.
  1. I prepooed with the Ojon Conditioning Treatment.
  2. Shampooed with Ojon Hydrating Shampoo.
  3. Deep conditioned with Joico Hydrating Balm with heat for 45 minutes.
  4. Giovanni Direct for a leave in & Mizani Heat serum.
  5. Sealed my hair with Castor oil.
  6. Sectioned & detangled in 4 sections.
  7. Twisted in 12 Bantu knots & air dried overnight.
  8. Maxiglided in sections and put a flexirod on each section while still warm.
