I love this video. People need to realize that relaxing your hair doesn't cause damage if you're doing it right & if you actually take care of your relaxed hair. I have so many friends & know so many people who've been getting a relaxer for years and they have hair down to their waist. If you relax your hair & then not take care of it, of course it's going to get damaged because relaxed hair is more prone to damage IF you don't take care of it. doesn't matter if it's natural or relaxed, all that matters is if it's healthy & if you take care of it. Don't blame the reason for your hair not growing on the fact that you relax your hair or that it's natural. Take good care of your hair & it'll grow long. You just have to be patient :)

I don't think we should force everyone to be natural. Some people can't deal with their natural hair and feel its easier when their hair is relaxed and get great results like the woman in this video. My mum was relaxed for years and had beautiful, luscious hair (she's natural now). I don't like the process/history of relaxing your hair and don't think relaxed can TRULY be the definition of healthy but it CAN grow as long as you care for your hair.

People need to realize that relaxed hair can grow. The reason that natural hair grows is not because it is natural.  It grows because the hair is being taking care of..  Think about it. When a lot of women have their hair relaxed they just throw some cheap grease on it and a weave(which may mean glue, sew ins or tight braids). They blow dry, flat iron , avoid water , and color it like crazy . Do harsh wraps at night and do a lot of protein treatments(which can break the hair). All that to hair that already has a chemical in it... But, when they go  natural , most start to drink more water , take vitamins, use expensive hair products(that moisturize), put water on their hair daily, do mostly braided styles(braid out , twist outs), and some don't even want to color their hair(expect with henna).  So the hair is  now being taking care of.  Now, they don't  just rip a brush through it to keep it straight or help it blend with a weave, oh no , now they gently detangle it, and braid it back up, or do a wash and go..and most stop going to a salon altogether(so no more trims) . My point is ,the  hair is growing because it is being taking care of , not because it is natural.  Your hair will grow (out of your scalp)regardless of rather it is relaxed or natural. But, it is up to you to retain the grow, by taking care of the hair.

why did it take so much heat to get your hair that straight if you had an S wave curl pattern?

It dosent even look like you got a relaxer you look like one of those pretty biracial models lol I got my hair relaxed for 8th grade . I'm in 9th now I only gotten 3 touch ups to far. I really miss my big curly fluffy hair but honestly this videos makes me confident about my relaxed hair. People says relaxers permanently damaged ur hair. If so then why does new growth come back ? But in someways my hair is damaged because of stress and minipulation. I honestly think I worry about my hair too much. But hey I just was my hair to be healthy . I gonna grow my hair out then relax it next year. It works great for me. And I see lots of growth that way. Anyways let me stop talking about myself and say that god bless you I I pray that he gives me healthy hair on my future , and I hope that your hair will continue to be healthy in the future . God bless you :)

I am natural and I loved this video. And no, I will not be relaxing my hair ever again but I liked that fact that she showed people that relaxed hair can grow and I liked her message at the end.
