My first creamy crack was in 2006 - I was in my first year of uni. My hair fell out. So I kind of abandoned it pretty darn quick.
And saying that the experience of a poc with their (and their children's) hair is even remotely comparable to yours is ridiculous. And, stating that a poc relaxing their child's hair is abuse (and specifying AA people in your statement!) seems incredibly racist and 'white saviour' complex to me.
Or is it just me?

The first time I got a relaxer was when I was about 8 years old. My hair is very curly, and the texture is a bit course, so my mom always had trouble detangling it. She would actually use TWO super strength relaxers on my hair at the same time due to the fact that my hair was so resistant. It never became completely straight, not even wavy. It pretty much went from 3C to 3A. Which really isn't all that big of a difference. I finally had enough of the relaxers when I turned 18 and was able to make my own choices. That's when I made the decision to grow out my hair and become completely natural. Two years later and I've finally accomplished my goal of becoming 100% natural and embracing my hair. Definitely something that I'm proud of (: especially since during the transitioning period I had a lot of temptations to just give up and relax my hair again. But I made it!
