My Relaxer Day Essentials - Featuring ORS Olive Oil Relaxer and ORS Replenishing ConditionerFriday, March 24, 2017
Nothing makes me happier than to relax my hair using the brand I trust most - ORS Olive Oil Professional Crème Relaxer and ORS Replenishing Conditioner!
I look forward to relaxer day not only because I get to see progress i.e. length, thickness etc., but my results are predictable and that's what I love most.
ORS Olive Oil Professional Relaxer has been a staple in my healthy hair regimen for years - I'm talking 2009/10!! It's Bae ❤ I use the Normal strength for my coarse 4b/c strands. Normal strength processes slower - which is a good thing for me. I find that this strength is mild for my hair as it preserves just the right amount of texture giving my hair body and fullness.
I apply my relaxer using my Sprush (in pic above) and the relaxer stays on my new growth for exactly 20 minutes (I use the timer on my phone to ensure I don't go over). I follow up with my neutralizing shampoo process, which is a total of approximately 20 minutes (I do this to ensure the relaxer is completely out of my hair) and then I deep condition.
ORS Replenishing Conditioner is my "go-to" treatment on relaxer day. Why? Because it has the best moisture/protein balance that my hair craves right after a relaxer. Remember, relaxers strip the protein out of your hair, so its best to replenish (no pun intended LOL) the protein back into the hair - sooner than later. Not to mention, the conditioner also helps to restore the moisture levels back into the hair. Don't get me started on the detangling abilities either - my goodness! It's a gem.
Mixing my ORS Replenishing Conditioner with a little Olive oil, Coconut Oil and Avocado Oil for extra penetration and nutrients is a ritual of mine. In fact, if I relax fairly late in the evening (I relax my hair at home), I will deep condition overnight and my hair is like warm butter when I rinse in the morning!! Fact!!
My relaxer day is nothing without these essential products. They are staples and my hair loves them!
