My hair is Relaxed. Relaxed Hair, Is hair that has been chemically treated to remove all curls and waves, changing the hair to straight hair. You would need to get a relaxer to do this transformation.
Wikipedia definition: A relaxer is a type of lotion or cream generally used by people with curly-textured hair which makes hair less tangled and also easier to straighten by chemically “relaxing” the natural curls. The active agent is usually a strong alkali, although some formulations are based on ammonium thioglycolate instead.

My Hair History
From the age of 5, my hair has always been relaxed. My mum always had drama with my hair and felt it was best idea. During ages 5 -11 my hair was shoulder length and I will say healthy. So once I got into my teen years I ruined my hair.
▪ Hair straightening……….. Was my best friend
▪TOO MUCH GEL
▪And I had an occasion with hair dye.
So my hair was dry, broken, and nasty, plus it was got worse going to university. Going to lectures I would put it in a ponytail but going out, there would be more straightening, gluing in strips of weave, half weaves, clip ons and etc.
Again hair was in terrible state and I got annoyed.
So I did some “investigating” online on how to grow black relaxed hair. I was amazed on how much info their was :O. After doing some solid research I decided to go on a hair journey!
Now……………………….. what is a hair journey?
