Transitioning: What’s Left of My Relaxer

I am hating my ends!

It’s Tuesday and I am hating these ends, even more so then when I complained during the P.Y.E challenge! As I watch the clock wind down to June 30th, I am continually tempted to grab the scissors and start cutting. Last night, I did a braid-n-curl to prepare for the day’s style. I used a mixture of H2O, Aloe Vera Juice, a bit of Glycerin, and Rosemary, Orange, and Grapefruit EOs to re-moisturize the strands, followed by my homemade shea butter cream to seal.  Usually I have about 16 braids, but last night I cut it down to about 10 medium sized braids and curled the ends using a perm rods. This morning when I took them out, I loved the chunkiness of the hair, but the ends disgusted me! It totally takes away from the style! If I weren’t so stubborn I’d move the BC date up.  This is another reason why protective styling works so well for me; I never have to see my ends! Out of sight, out of mind!
