It seems so surreal to be at this moment… I am 1 year post relaxer; I last relaxed my hair on the 3rd of May 2015. It feels like the year has gone by so quickly and my hair has gone through so much in that space of time. I went from relaxed to transitioning to big chopping and becoming fully natural. I went through a period of not liking my hair much towards the end of my transition, and after big chopping I was thrust into a new world of short natural hair. This new world has been a steep learning curve in its own right.
My first product review in a very long time. I’m not sure why I haven’t done them lately, but I am back, so all is not lost. This is a quick one of the Herbal Essences Hello Hydration conditioner. I spoke about this conditioner in my empties and haul video, I thought it would be best to give it a more in depth review seeing as I have been using it for over 6 months.
To be honest, I planned my big chop. As I was counting my weeks post relaxer, I realised that on my birthday I will be exactly 30 weeks post relaxer and it was my 30th birthday – that felt like the right time to do it. I went on my birthday weekend away armed with my hair scissors and a few hair products for post big chop maintenance that would tide me over till I got back home.
