Stretching Or Transitioning?

Hair stretched with Shi-Smooth Transitioning Kit
Hello everybody i know it's been a while since i last blogged. Once again i'm debating stretching or transitioning. I have not relaxed since July. I have about 3 inches of new growth. I don't plan to relax any time soon. Since July  i have been trying to deal with the new growth and the many textures of my hair. I have 4a, 4b and some 3a textures plus the relaxed texture. The one common thing about all the textures is that my hair is very dry and brittle, even more so stretching! I am at the point of being so tired of the relaxed ends breaking and shedding all the time. So, i'm leaning once again toward transitioning. I have been using the Shi-Smooth Transition Kit to help me along with this process, just in case i decide to transition. So far the kit is really helping with taming the new growth and helping with the dryness and breakage.

My new regimen
1. co-wash 2x weekly
2. deep condition 2x weekly
3. air dry
4. moisturize & seal
5. henna gloss 1x monthly

Braid hair in 8 sections
apply growth oil to scalp while in braids
moisture and seal daily while in braids
I will do everything to my hair while in braids/and only take down braids to wash
then re-braid.
Wear protective style ( wig, weave or braids all winter)

My moisture mix
Any oil  for sealing
 Henna gloss

any questions/suggestions?
