This is the year I'm really working on getting very thick hair. I'm wearing a lot of protective styles, mainly chignon's. I'm stretching my relaxer as long as possible, hopefully 7 to 8 months or more. When I get tired of that, I wear ponytails. I hope to wear my hair down a little more this summer. My first goal was waist length, however, if I can reach that goal with thick hair I would be happy. I'm hoping my hair isn't naturally thinner than I thought. I'll be posting a picture the end of May of this year.
