Relaxer Day Results…

I relaxed my hair myself at 18 weeks post relaxer and it was a lot tedious than I imagined.  I’m officially a DIY relaxer girl *throws confetti*. The night before my relaxer I put my hair in four sections and sprayed my new growth with Mane n Tail detangler and combed with my wide width comb followed by a smaller teeth comb to get all the tangles or knots out. I did this because I wanted to be able to part through my hair while applying the relaxer to my new growth only. I applied Vaseline on my scalp, tied down my hair and went to sleep.  I was hoping for some texture and not bone straight results.

On the morning of my relaxer I applied Extra Virgin Olive Oil on my strands, then Roux

How To | Prep Your Hair For & On Relaxer Day…

Instead boring you with my relaxer day prep wash day, I decided to share my routine for future purposes and for anyone who wants to start a healthy hair journey.  This is a guide line that I use for my preparation prior and on the day itself. I’m venturing into being a DIY girl and although its nerve racking I’m up for the challenge this weekend @ 18weeks post relaxer.

Wash Day @ 16 Weeks Post…

I looked at my current stat on the left hand side of the screen and realized I was due for a relaxer on the 4 Jan 2014, which would have been the norm for me to relax at 16weeks post but I didn't do a protein treatment last weekend and truthfully my hair has been cooperating so I’m not in a hurry to relax.  I want to be a DIY girl for my relaxer so I’m trying to build up myself for the task. This is how this wash day went:
