Hair Update: May 2011 Relaxer Results

Friday, May 20, 2011

I relaxed May 18th with Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Normal Strength for 20 mins. Here are the results.

Wet Hair:

Air Dried Hair with Scurl No Drip Activator as Leave-in Conditioner:

I'm really pleased with how well this relaxer took. I was 3 months post and it was a task getting through all of my new growth. My hair is pretty straight this time but has some texture. I decided not to put heat in my hair as yet. Maybe in a couple weeks or so. I'm trying to maintain my goal length of MBL (Mid Back Length) far so good even though I got a trim back in March! My next trim will be in August 2011.

    @ Valecia - I will post my current regimen soon.

    @ Anonymous - I have found temporary relief from my hard water issues i.e. using a hard water shampoo, clarifying often etc.

    @ Loica12 - Sure. I'll do a post on that.

    @ Tora - It took me 2 1/2 years with set backs to grow my hair from damaged SL to MBL.

    @ A - I relaxed my hair with my sister's help. She took care of the front while I did the back.

    @ Withintheword - I use Lye relaxer and I start relaxing in the back.
