Stretching My Relaxer: My Coily New Growth

Saturday, December 13, 2014


I'm approximately 12 weeks post relaxer. This stretch was pretty simple i.e. Ikept up with my moisture/protein treatments, protective styled frequently to minimize manipulation etc. Usually throughout my stretch I can never seem to take my hands out of my new growth! I just love the feeling of my kinky coils. It feels so nice between my fingers. I know I'm not the only one :) So I picked up my camera and took a few shots just to see what it looked like up-close. I was shocked to see how coily my curl pattern was. I'm definitely in the 4b range. I fall in love every time I stretch :)

Do you play in your new growth too? How long do you stretch your relaxers for?

  2. OMG!!!!! I do the exact same thing. Every time I stretch I'm always in my new growth. I love how my coils feel. I always wondered if other people did the same thing. I think I have the same hair type as you as well.

  6. Loved your post but curious as to why you relax your hair if you love your coiled curl pattern of your natural hair...
