what you dont know is your own fault

things not explained to me prior to becoming relaxed/texturized/whatever-you-want-to-call-it:

1. if you are going to do anything other than wear your hair straight, you have to do your hair pretty much daily

2. your hair will always be DRY. there is not much you can do about it

3. products that made your natural hair look and feel good have no power over the chemical

4. 6-8 weeks go by quicker than you ever realized and that time period was selected for a reason

5. your new growth might scare you/hurt

6. you will somehow be more tenderheaded than before

Was this your first time getting a relaxer? Oh no, I could have given you some pointers. Your hair probably itches like hell right before a touch-up too, huh? A mess!
