I Trimmed My Hair…

I brought out the scissors and got a light trim.  Remember my (last wash day)post when I told you guys that I suffered from a lot of breakage, well the before trim pic below shows you exactly. As you can see 1 inch was trimmed off and I wanted more cut but mom insisted that it was enough. I must admit I'm scared to trim my own hair.

My ends looks on the thin side but that's because my hair was product heavy after moisturizing and sealing for 4 days before I decided to trim.  This was probably a bad idea and I should have trimmed right after my relaxer.

Wash Day Post Relaxer...

I’ll like to say a BIG hello to all my followers especially my newest followers, I really appreciate your support.  I’m going on vacation and really looking forward to some deserved relaxation.  I need to add some strength to my hair after the relaxer process last week, so protein will definitely be incorporated.

[1]     Prepooed with Extra Virgin Olive Oil & Grapeseed Oil mixed all over my hair
         first. Then I applied ORS Hair Mayonnaise mixed with CON Intensive 
         Conditioning Treatment on the length of my hair on top of that. You guys know
         I can’t stand strong smell and the ORS Hair Mayonnaise has a strong perfume 
         scent so I tried to tone it down with CON intensive treatment but that too has a
         sweetish smell.  I added a couple drops of peppermint oil and mixed thoroughly
         before applying to the length of my hair.
[2]     Shampooed with ORS Creamy Aloe Shampoo, followed by CON Argan Oil Moisture
         & Shine Shampoo.
[3]     Deep Conditioned with Queen Helene mixed with my Oils & Roux Correction
[4]     Wrapped my hair in a t-shirt for 10 mins to absorb the excess water.
[5]     Applied Aphogee Keratin & Green Tea Restructurizer, HE Split-End Protector 
         and Organix Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum and detangled.
[6]     Full wrapped my hair and sat under my dryer for 45 mins. After being under the 
         dryer for 20 mins I realized, crap I forgot to spray my Tresemme Heat Tamer ah well.
[7]     My hair was 80% dry and threw on my satin bonnet and went to bed.

The following day I applied some Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter and Hot Six Oil around my wrap and combed it down with my wide with comb. I didn't have much time to take a lot of pics as I was hustling to get to the airport. I don’t want to do too much with my hair while on vacay so washing isn't an option but you never know what will happen. Definitely keeping it simple but going to enjoy the fruits of my labour over the last 16 weeks

Relaxer Day Results…

Let me apologize for how late this post is. Last weekend was hectic and just full of excitement. The night before my relaxer I took my time and detangle my hair with my favorite Mane n Tail Detangler. I parted my hair in 4 sections and sprayed the Detangler on my new growth, then combed with my wide width comb, followed by smaller teeth comb to make sure all my coils were combed out properly so it’s easier when the relaxer is applied. Then I applied Vaseline on my scalp.  It took me 2 hours to carefully detangle.  I can’t imagine what you ladies who are transitioning go through on your wash days, takes my hat off to you guys

The morning of my relaxer I applied Extra Virgin Olive Oil on my ends first, followed by Roux Correction Conditioner on my ends to protect it from relaxer run off. I headed down to my favorite hairdresser in Bridgetown for 8:00 am and I was her first client.

[1]      She used the Optimum Multi-Mineral Reduced PH Crème Relaxer in which the 
          total application, smoothing and combing through time took 25 mins
[2]      She washed out the relaxer and Shampooed with Motions Neutralizing Shampoo 
[3]      She applied the Elasta QP Soy OYL Ultra Hydration Anti-Breakage Moisture Rich 
          Deep Conditioner, placed a plastic cap on my hair and I headed under the dryer 
          for 45 mins
[4]      I allowed my hair to cool off first before she washed out the deep conditioner
[5]      She applied Blue Magic Tea Tree Oil Leave in conditioner
[6]      My hair was full wrapped and sat under the dryer for 1 hour

I was getting frustrated being under the dryer so I left the salon at 10:30 am that’s record time for me, with my hair still wrapped.  Only the top of my hair was damp but I figured while walking around in town the sun will help dry it, plus I can go under my dryer when I get home.  My hairdresser was not pleased that I didn’t let the hair totally dry but she knows I can take care of my hair.

To be honest when  got home I was nervous to take down my wrap because I was not sure if I
