Relaxing My Hair Tonight! 3 Months PostSaturday, December 22, 2012
I've officially hit 3 months post relaxer! It all goes down tonight. I based my scalp with Hollywood Beauty Castor Oil (new formula) and I applied it to my previously relaxed hair (from the new growth down) to avoid overlap.
I prepare my hair by pre-parting it in thin sections so that the process goes faster and evenly. The twists help to keep the hair in separate sections.The Sprush helps tremendously. I have two so that my sister can use one on the back of my head (I relax the front). I set the timer to 25 minutes but I always finish with 5-10 mins to spare. When I'm done, I unravel all the twists and head to the shower.
I plan on doing a mid-protein step (which I've never done before) with Affirm 5 in 1 Reconstructor for approximately 2-5 mins then neutralize (20 mins) with Motions Neutralizing Shampoo.
