I didn't think I could do the stretch because I wasn't used to stretching that long. I accomplished that goal and it felt good. Actually, the day I relaxed my hair, I felt as though I could have gone longer than that. It's now December 2, 2010 and I plan to do another 6 to 7 month stretch.
I did learn that my hair likes cowashes during the week at least once. I've noticed a very big difference since I started that.
Moisturizing and sealing daily has also transformed my hair. I'm learning everyday and it feels wonderful.
