Hair Update: Got a Trim :)Sunday, April 10, 2011
It's been a while since I did an update so here it goes...
I relaxed my hair back in February 2011 and to my surprise it was waist length (yay!) however; my ends where not up to my standards. They looked thinner than usual so I decided to trim it a little passed BSL since the length that I want to maintain is MBL. I trimmed it in March (after a wash and blow dry) and I'm loving it!!! I really can't handle waist length hair, it's just too much work. I love BSL/MBL hair. It's perfect for me. So that's pretty much it, where the trim is concerned. From now on I'll be growing it back to MBL and maintaining that length & thicker ends, trimming it every other relaxer.
Unfortunately, my regimen is almost non existent, LOL. It's sad to say, but I'm not as ridged with my hair as I was before. I've been co-washing a few times a week and only deep conditioning maybe once a week?! Moisturizing and sealing once every 2-3 days?! Horrible and unacceptable! I know :( I've been slacking a bit since life has become a little hectic for the past couple months (moving into a new house, traveling, death of a family member etc.) but that is about to change. I'll definitely be going back to my old regimen. That's life I guess. That just goes to show that sometimes life gets in the way but you have to pick up where you left off and continue on.
As of now, I'm currently 7 weeks post relaxer, due for a relaxer early May. I will be self relaxing at home as usual. I plan on using a different neutralizing shampoo this time around. I noticed that ORS Neutralizing shampoo is a bit drying so I will be experimenting with Motions moisturizing neutralizing shampoo. I heard great things about it so I'll test it out and see. Expect product reviews shortly :)
