Last night, instead of getting my usual 8-week relaxer, she opted for braiding my hair in sections and then roller-setting it on medium rods. I sat under the dryer for probably over an hour while she made sure it was thoroughly dry. Next time she said she will use more braids so that it can dry quicker. But, I liked the effect of a head full of curly curls. Normally, I would get a roller set, so this isn't too much of a departure from my usual routine.
One thing I'm looking forward to is experimenting with different styles as the texture changes. I'll try to blog here throughout the process and include some pictures along with my feelings and experiences.
