Yesterday I relaxed my hair and was very happy with my results.
If you're a new follower you don't know this but I'll tell you ...I'm going through this journey known as a "hair journey" to make my hair longer, stronger and healthier. I started my hair journey back in January of 2011.
This me in January 2011 (Left) and March 2011 (Right):
I have kept taking care of my hair by moisturizing it, washing it two times a week, deep conditioning it once a week and doing protein treatments once a month. With the help of websites like KISS and Hairlista I learned how to manage stretching - extending the amount of time before a relaxer - and overall care of my hair properly.
To finish off the relaxers for the year I relaxed on November 2011
*Note that my ends are curled here due to
the roller set I got at the hair salon.
My hair journey anniversary - Jan. 24, 2012 - arrived and I still did not relax then because I'm currently doing 12 weeks stretches. So after the 12 weeks passed I did relax and here are my results...

Overall I'm very happy with my results!

I'm about 2 inches away from APL (Arm Pit Length)!
I would definitely recommend anyone that wants to grow out their hair or simply wants to have healthier hair to do a bit of research on ways to take care of your hair. A hair journey takes patience and lots of love towards your hair but its definitely worth it.
