Relax update

Day of relaxer
Hey guys, sorry we've been away but school is just taking over our lives but anyway here's my relax update. I relaxed my hair on August 30. 2014 at 21 weeks post relaxer. I relaxed with the Optimum Multi Mineral reduced ph creme relaxer in regular.  It was a good relax day but I regret not basing my scalp so I ended up with a slight relaxer burn. Also because the relaxer had to be rinsed out sooner I ended up not getting my new growth as straight as I like. I don't think I will be doing a corrective relaxer though. I am currently 3 weeks post relaxer.

Wash Day: Wet Wrap

Hii guys, this was probably a really bad day for me to wash my hair. As you can tell from the titile, I did a wet wrap as my style but it wasn't what I planned at all. My hands and back were so tired from shopping, cause I had to go to the supermarket. And lil ole me thought I could manage the groceries by myself and walk home, but when I realize I couldn't it was too late to turn back and take a taxi. So I struggled home with the groceries and it was such a terrible walk, but never again!

Prepoo- I prepooed overnight with my Vo5  Moisture Milks Strawberry and Cream, along with my apple cider vinegar and oil mix (which comprises of African Pride Growth Oil and Tropic Isle Red Pimento Oil, and I added two drops of my rosemary essential oil).

Wash Day : 20 weeks post roller set

Hey guys, I'm currently about 20 weeks post and decided to wash my hair to prep for a relaxer soon. I was a bit nervous because this is my longest stretch EVER ! But it went better than I expected. So here's what I did.
(separated curls)

[1] Pre-poo: I did a deep condition pre-poo with ORS replenishing conditioner and a mixture of coconut oil, olive oil and JBCO. I let that sit for about 45 minutes.

[2] Shampoo: Using White Rain Volumizing shampoo as a clarifying shampoo I shampooed my hair 3x.

[3] Air dry: I air dried my hair for about 1 and a half hr.
