I don't want to be addicted to the "creamy crack" as they now call chemical relaxers. I don't have "bad hair" and I know my hair would be much better off without a relaxer, but the transition is often difficult after getting relaxers for so many years.
I've never been one to get relaxers more than 3 times a year, so why not just not get them at all? I take very good care of my hair, and with my wonderful stylist by my side I know I can do this. Because I'm not going to lie...I'm really going to need some support.
I can't wait for Chris Rock's movie "Good Hair" to come out in October where he talks about the subject of African American women and all the stigmas and stereotypes surrounded by our hair. This should be very interesting. I love how he's added some humor into the situation but its a serious subject nonetheless.
