I have just finished washing my hair and I'm really enjoying it looking healthy and happy lol.  I haven't been cowashing as much but the As I Am Coconut co-wash is great when I do and my hair looks and feels great.  I think I mentioned that I grabbed the As I Am leave in conditioner but that has been added to the leave in part of what I do and that feels amazing on my hair.  Smells pretty good too.  My hair looks like it's grown a bit since the last perm but I'm not sure if it's the milder weather or my hair is just cooperating for a change.  The biggest thing I've noticed is my new growth isn't feeling like its out of control or super dry or not holding my hair styles like it could sometimes in the winter.  It's more tightly coiled and actually just feels strong and healthy.  I can't say I've mastered the flexi rod set but I'm enjoying it when I do it.  The perm rods are hard to sleep on and I was getting tired of the basic roller set.  Now I have to learn a different style lol because I'll get bored with this one eventually too.  Maybe I can try the bantu knots or twists out next when I have patience to get the twists SUPER tight so they don't come undone as I air dry.  The lack of heat is still clearly helping out and I enjoy that.  The other thing I'm getting a kick out of us is I have a clear demarcation on my hair of when I stopped coloring which is around the time I started my hair journey so I can see where my hair has come in almost the last year.  I'm two much shy of my year ha, hadn't thought about that.  I think I will rinse or dye it the next time I go in for my relaxer but to a black likely.  My hair is growing in salt and pepper and I don't think it will be as shocking to people who haven't seen me in a while.  Plus right now it's making me a look a little older only because it looks like my hair just gave up and went gray lol.  I'm a full ten weeks post now and I'm not having the same kind of issues I normally do at this point.  My hair is normally on poof patrol and begging for creamy crack.  If I hadn't been so exhausted recently it would be doing better than it is but it's still holding up well.  I'm going to try to make it to twelve weeks this time if this next week goes well.  I think a full three months may be all I should do right now.  But when I go in we're also talking about potentially just going natural which could mean a texlax or continued stretching.  I'm not up for a big chop now that I've finally got my hair growing but I also may just keep my perm as I feel like I've learned how to work with it now.  I'd take a picture but it's just me in flexi-rods right now so nothing to show.  I want to thank everyone who youtubes because you help inspire me when I'm super tired of the 90 minutes it takes to wash and detangle and set my hair.  And that's just with my hair grazing my shoulders.  No telling what it will do whenever I actually hit shoulder or armpit length.  Oh that's just amazing to think about.  So excited about what's to come with my hair.  Hope everyone had a great weekend.
