I didn't have any serious issues with my relaxed hair. It just wasn't full enough for me. To me it seemed healthly considering the fact that I never knew how to take care of my hair. I wore weaves 100% of the time, and only saw my hair when it was time to get a new perm. Also the way my hair was getting relaxed was very damaging, which would explain the reason why I thought my hair wasn't full enough... I was losing to much hair during the process. Ever time I got a perm, I would put the perm on ALL of my hair, not just the root like you are suppose to, thinking that's how you get it bone straight. It was when I had my first Dominican blow out(2nc pic), when I realized my hair was way to thin. I wanted the fullness of natural hair.
