I've been stretching for twenty weeks already. It's going super fast, i don't even count the weeks anymore. So a quick update: i kept myself on my regimen, i've been putting coconut oil mixed with castor oil on my scalp, my new growth if feeling really soft and moisturized, my scalp feels clean, i have no breakage, sometimes i get tangels when i try to comb my hair out, i wear protective styles seven days a week, sometime's my new growth gets dry when i go outside but other than that so far so good. I haven't straightend my hair this month because the weather is ugly. It keeps raining and raining, the only thing i did was blow out my new growth. I just sectioned a part off, put a little round brush on my new growth and blowdried it. It didn't last very long but i was pleased at that moment. Next week thursday i hit my 21 weeks. BUT i am not going to relax yet, i'm gonna get a sew-in because i'm going on a vacation for three weeks and i don't want to worry about my hair and i want to give it some rest.
