1 Year Anniversary: How Far I've Come On My Relaxed Hair Journey

It has been one year since I started my healthy relaxed hair journey! It's also been one year since I started this blog by publishing my first blog post! This last year has been an exciting one. Lots of changes and lots of progress with my healthy hair journey. Here are some of the highlights from the past year.

moved from North Carolina to Florida for a new job.

I discovered apple cider vinegar hair rinses. After I started doing the rinses I saw a decrease in my dandruff and itchy scalp.

I stretched my relaxers longer than ever. I ended up stretching my relaxer for 16 weeks and saw good results.

I wore several various short-term protective styles. This resulted in me wearing more updos in one year than I had in the last give. I would sometimes go days, even weeks without wearing my hair down.

I created a relaxed hair regimen using products I never would have and hadn't heard of before I started my hair journey.

What are some of your highlights from the past year?
