Prior to washing, Curl pattern, Nape shrinkage after washing, Braided up!
I have definitely got the hang of transitioning long term, it's funny I have 6 weeks left to BC but I definitely feel I could transition for longer. But knowing my curiosity I doubt I'd be able to past 1 year post relaxer. My nape is basically natural and my relaxed ends are hanging on for dear life (this is b/c my nape is shorter as a relaxer broke off a lot of the length). The braids look so thick! I'm very happy with the condition of my hair and the fact I have not been to a stylist in 11 months. DIY is the best!
