Fresh Relaxer and (surprise!) Length Check for February!!!

Hey Ladies! I couldn't take it anymore and ended up Relaxing at 14 weeks. I think that was a pretty good stretch. I'll be shortening that though. Next Relaxer will be a day or 2 before Mother's Day. I need a new do for Mother's Day. So I coated my Hair w EVOO 1 day before. Relaxed and did a color (Herbal dye) on my Greys(ew).Also did a Hair Mayo treatment with a Moisturizing Condish afterward. I ended up doing a Flat Iron and this is the straightest I've ever gotten my Hair. I feel the pain of ladies that are addicted to Heat. I like my Hair sleek but I cannot ruin my progress by overdoing the Heat, so no more Heat until my next Relaxer or 2 mths from now. Pics below! Keep in mind, this is in doing the JBCO Challenge. My before pics are on the left.

I've discovered how to get my Hair really straight. A small Flat iron and parting in really small sections. It took hours and I mean hours. I am going to try to hold tight to this for 2 weeks,but that's a long time to go w/o washing my Hair. Shoot, y'all should know how I am, I need a weekly Wash. Oh and I gave myself a Trim finally to even it out and get rid of those raggedy ends. I didn't take off much less than 3/4(I think not sure about fractions so don't quote me)
