From Root to Tip: Everything you need to know about my hair and my current Hair Regimen

This is all the information about my hair and how I take care of it. I will update it over time with any changes.

The Past:
My first relaxer was in February 2009 and honestly that the biggest mistake I ever made. I obviously did not know how to take care of my hair and it broke terribly. I was very uneducated on this topic and used close to no hair products! Later that year I transitioned to my natural hair and learnt how to manage my hair, that process went extremely well and my hair was strong, thick and healthy. On January of 2011 I began to contemplate on relaxing again and began my research....told you I Googled everything (lol).

New Beginning:
After accumulating all the information on the pros and cons of relaxed hair, the products that would be necessary to maintain healthy, strong, growing chemically treated hair, I came to my final decision on July of 2012. I purchased my hair products before hand (the ones I got excellent reviews on and decided on trying) and then visited my hair stylist. Relaxing was a decision based mainly on manageability and time consumption. It took alot of time for me to maintain my natural hair because of how thick my hair is. So far, presently, I have a hair regimen in place that seems to be working leaving my hair moisturized and growing.
