I'm almost ready to quit and relax my hair
I'm really trying but I think I am almost at my wits end. I have been transitioning since August 2009 and because of my busy schedule, I really need to be able to wear weaves and braids. I have been wearing wigs but that is extra work in the mornings. My problem is that these "so-called" natural haircare professionals in Atlanta are anything but that. I made an appointment with a stylist for kinky twists. My hair is now a hot mess and I will have to pay someone else to take this hair down. She tied my hair into a knot with the synthetic hair, then braided it about a half-inch, and then tried to twist the rest. It is falling apart and the braids are all different lengths and sizes. She insists she did a good job. :sad3: I'm feeling like life was much easier when my hair was relaxed, even with the constant shedding. And I just can't see chopping all my hair off. My hair has been shoulder length since I was a child and I'm not comfortable yet. Any advice or stylist recommendation would be helpful.
