My "Teyonah Parris Up-do" On Relaxed Hair

Saturday, August 17, 2013


I absolutely love this style! I had plans to go out for my sister's birthday and I wanted something classy, up off my shoulders and heat-free. I've always admired Teyonah Parris' hair style from the SAG Awards and I decided to give it a try. 

I used MsVaughnTV's tutorial  to achieve this look.  It was simple and easy to duplicate. She was amazingly thorough! Please keep in mind I did this style on freshly air dried hair for a more fuller thicker appearance (I am 10 weeks post relaxer). 

How I prepped my hair:

- Air dried with Scurl No Drip Activator on wet hair
- Detangled from the ends up
- Moisturized with Qhemet Biologics Burdock Root Butter Creme once dry
- Eco Styler Gel on edges

Tools Used:

- Wide tooth comb/ Shower comb
- Ouchless ponytail holders (3)
- Ouchless bobby pins



Later on that evening, out in the city:

  10. Good morning, I'm a Nigerian so I went to my stylist to relax my hair yesterday but while relaxing this is what happened after applying the relaxer on my new growth she massage through comb it with a rat toothed tail i.e the small blue comb with tiny tooth; she comb it twice al-round and also applied it on the older growth sayin "if not applied on it the older growth i.e. previously relaxed hair would turn natural so applying it makes everything uniform" and I stayed 10mins more after this process got bone straight using a no-lye relaxer. This is how its been done here in Nigerian which I know of, But is this right? if not how do I go about it because I want my hair to be healthy.
    I want to add protein to my hair using Egg, how do I go about it? What will I add? After this will I still Deep condition? Need your guidance Thanks I will be very glad!
    Nice hair do..

    1. Hi Temmy. It seems like your stylist is over processing your hair. There's no need for relaxer to be applied to the ends. It' has already been relaxed. This can cause breakage and thinning. I suggest you tell your stylist that you only want the New growth relaxed, no where else. You can deep condition with Egg, just add oils i.e. olive oil, coconut oil etc. along with a cheapie conditioner. Leave it in for 30mins. You can follow up with a moisturizing deep condition as your hair may feel hard/stiff. You may want to look into getting a Reconstructor with Hydrolyzed keratin to rebuild and restructure the hair. The molecules are small enough to penetrate therefore help prevent and treat damage. Hope that helps.
