HI, i’m Athena. I’ve just found this forum, I don’t know whether I’ve posted this in the right place or not. Sorry if its in the wrong place.
My hair is really getting me down. I hate it, I don’t know what to do with it. I usually have it in braids or extension twists but it’s not doing my hair any good. My mum suggested me relaxing or texturizing my hair, but i’m really scared about the chemicals and the prospect of breakage etc.
I really don’t know what to do. It’s so thick and coarse. And the back is quite short and it’s hard to comb out :S
I was thinking of ‘flat ironing’ but then loads of sites on the internet are saying that it’ll destroy the hair.
What should I do? Should I texturize/relax it to make it more manageable? And also, my hair doesn’t seem to grow very well.
Does anybody have an suggestions? any styles? any ways to tame it? :(
i just don’t know what to do and it’s making me really upset.
Here’s the photo of my hair
I’m extremely grateful for any answers
