Decisions, Decisions !!!

I'm 14 weeks post and this stretch has not been the easiest for me. Some weird tangling is happening and i don't know why. It's frustrating me to no end. I feel i'm doing everything right, but my hair feels all wrong. Detangling at this point seems to be a joke!! I'm getting some strange locking hairs that has never happened before. I see breakage, dryness and brittle hair, so i'm going to give my hair a rest and think about my next step. I will keep a protective style for at least 6 months. By then i will decide if i want to transition or not. I am doing a 6 month protective style challenge on MyHairSistas.

The above photos are of my protective style (latch hook braids) I plan to wear these for 2 months.

Stretch With Me Challenge - Part 3

I'm 12-1/2 weeks post. I have been on the MN challenge on MyHairSistas for 3 months and i have a lot of new growth because of the MN. Here are the results :
I can see progress in growth and thickness, but my ends continue to look chewed up, lol. Even though i trim regularly. I know some of the uneveness has to do with shrinkage from the new growth. I will trim after my touch up. Trying for 6 months this time !!!
