I've really been considering relaxing my hair. I've been natural for about two years but it's been on my mind. Don't get me wrong I love my natural hair but I see women with long relaxed hair and it seems so manageable. I need some encouragement or something!

    All I will say is do what makes you happy. Natural hair isn't for everybody, and yes sometimes relaxed hair does seem more manageable but do you really want to go thru the process of relaxing your hair every few mnths and being uncomfortable with the relaxer process? Don't get me wrong your hair can be healthy with a relaxer, but I would give it more thought before a make such a big decision. Good luck

    Remember the burns, the scabs/sores, the possible hair breakage, the upkeep every 6-10 weeks, the price of that upkeep(if you go to salons) running from the rain, no going swimming or to the gym, the period where you're due for a touchup and can't scratch your head and all you can do is the pat, but

    Relaxed hair can also be healthy. I used to take the upmost care of my relaxed hair, but then I got bored and couldn't afford relaxers anymore, so I'm trying the natural path. Just remember the pros and cons of a relaxer and how they will or will not fit into your lifestyle. There's nothing wrong with change if it is what you want and have thought about it.
