One Year Creamy Crack Free!!!

Written by  Curly NOLA

 

 

Blog Bio: Hello Hair Lovers! I'm currently in the process of transitioning from the creamy crack world into the natural world. And lemme tell you, it definitely ain't been easy! Follow my journey as I learn about being natural (after 25 years of having relaxers) and embrace it in all its beauty.

 

I am on the path to recovery LOL! I just celebrated my one year of sobriety from the creamy crack...and I feel, and of course my hair feels sooooo good. As part of my anniversary celebration, I went to my hair dresser and got a wash, deep condition, trim, and roller set. The trim surprisingly felt really good. I got about an inch and a half cut off and it just felt good to know that more of all that relaxed hair was coming off and I am getting closer to my goal of having a natural head of hair. I have a LOT of new growth and now my hair looks so short because it's so curly. I had her do a roller set instead of blow-drying and flat-ironing to minimize the use of direct heat as possible. So I had so much body from the new growth and the results of the rollers...it looked like I had cut more than I actually had. But what I loved is how thick my hair is becoming. The relaxer was thinning my hair out slowly, but surely...to the point where my ponytails looked like long strings of hair. Now, my ponytails are so fat AND most importantly, HEALTHY!

At night, I wrapped my hair before I went to sleep and slept with a satin scarf. I wore it like this for about a week, but truth be told, I was ready for my curls to come back! Even though they can be a lot of work to maintain, I've come to really fall in love with them. I feel much more free and for lack of a better word, natural :) So, I've been thinking about how much longer I want to transition before I cut off ALL the relaxed ends. And even though I don't have that much to go, I don't think I want them gone all at one time cuz my hair will be shorter than I think it's ever been. Truthfully, I'm scared of short hair...my long hair has been a part of my identity for so long, it almost feels like a part of me will go missing if I cut it off. I know that sounds terrible and of course, it's just hair, but it's MY hair lol! So, I know that I'll probably transition for at least another 6 months. I'll be getting regular trims in the mean time, so it may come to the point where my trims will do the deed instead of the BIG CHOP.  Either way, we'll see cuz you never know what will happen.


Lately, I've been trying to compile a list of products that I've tried and what I thought about them, etc. I would love to hear about anything that has worked/or not worked for you guys!
