Length check/ Relaxer Update

Hey lovess, ;) lol. I relaxed my hair at about 2 days shy of 15 weeks post relaxer. As you can see from the pic above I need a trim. I feel like I say I need a trim every relaxer haha. Anyways I'm almost at BSL wooohooooooo!

I did switch my relaxer to Motions Professional hair relaxer in regular. Why I switched? I was just in the mood don't get me wrong Optimum was bomb but I just felt like trying the motions relaxer.

I did trim off some hair all around when I was one week post relaxer but I need a blunt
straight across cut at the back of my hair. I don't know if I'll let the hairdresser do it or not just cause I have trust issues.

I feel like since using lye relaxers my hair is a lot thicker since lye relaxers don't relax the hair bone straight but I will forever struggle with thin ends because I have fine strands *sigh*.

Overall this was a good relaxer but some texture was left in the nape of my hair though because the relaxer was burning so the relaxer had to be rinsed out earlier than usual.

Thanks for reading and don't forget to comment below :)


  1. Will you go back to optimum? Great resuts!

  2. I don't know but for now I don't think I will. Thank you ! :)

  3. Great progress ... How do you trim it yourself? Do you pony tail it and the cut a bit off the ends or let your hair out and the snip? Oh and what about dusting ... is that a regular thing to do every week or so? ... I've been out of the hair world for a while so I'm clueless and confused about these things and your obviously know what you're doing so .. Some tips please :)

  4. Thanks so much... yes I put it in a low pony tail and cut off a small amount of the ends just to get an even straight across cut. And about dusting I do not do it every week maybe like every 4 months but if I see split ends I will snip them off. Lol I'm no hair expert it's trial and error. It does depend on your hair though...it's a learning process because I used to trim my hair every 2- 3 months but I was not seeing a lot of growth so I started to trim it every 6 or more months and it's working for me but just see what your hair can handle and go from there :)
