I get mine relaxed every 3 to 4 months, just to get the comb through it easier. I don't wear weaves or wigs and don't color it. It's getting grayer by the minute and I have a slightly witchy look; keeps folks from fuckin' with me; you know how scared they get. I have a head full, it has a mind of it's own; keep it clean, it won't hold curls, my hubby loves it, and it's OK by me.
I use mostly oils on it to keep it moisturized; Tresemme shampoo & conditioner or sometimes Pantene and I'm good to go. I've never seen a Korean anything in my life, just the "Un" dude from North Korea every time he decides to send a missile flying into the Pacific Ocean every 5 days or so on my TV.
It was not a relaxer that sent my behind to the doctor yesterday; it was from those damned cigarettes I thought were so cool lookin' back in the day, to be puffin' on aftereffects. They aren't cute.
