Wash Day

So, two week wash days are helping me out with washing and saving my ends :0 who knew. I started by washing with John Masters Bare Shampoo. I used a bit much on one side but it still worked out. It wasn’t too drying or stripping, but next time I will use less but it … Continue reading

Relaxer Day

Please excuse me. I’m really slow these days. Sometimes I fall asleep while texting… So I relaxed this past weekend at 19 weeks post. While I was prepping my hair, I thought to myself “do I really need a relaxer? Can I hold out another week?” My hair felt fine. Straight. New growth barely speaking … Continue reading

Relaxer Day

After 13.5 (13 weeks and 4 days to be exact) I finally relaxed. First, let’s start with prep: I prefer to use Crisco over Vaseline because it takes forever to wash off.

Relaxer Day

Relaxer day soon come. I couldn’t take it anymore so I ended an 11 week stretch. My main problem lately has been shedding (the enemy) and not breakage. Being that I have controlled the shedding, but still have a ways to go to get it to where it was before, I just have to live … Continue reading

Preparation

Ha!!! So the thing about prepoos is that they vary in style. It’s always done in dry hair, but people have so many different ways of doing it. I like using conditioners, but that’s mostly good if Im going heavy on proteins or when the weather is super harsh. I prefer oils because my hair … Continue reading
