Relaxer days are the only days I take the dust off my flatiron and use it on my hair. That happens 3-4 times per year. I try very hard to minimize the amount of direct heat I place on my hair.

I remember the days, I loved dyeing my hair black because I thought black hair ‘looked healthy’ and now black is the furthest color on my mind. Also the color black doesn’t mean your hair is healthy. Knowledge is power.

After a long exhausting day with relaxing your hair, doing a length check is one of the most rewarding part of the process. We all want to know what progress we have made after stretching our relaxer. If you haven’t seen my relaxer results go on and check it out here. Even though I deep conditioned my hair weekly during this stretch, my ends were terribly affected from a previous stretch and since I barely trimmed last relaxer touch up, a trim was necessary this time around.

I relaxed my hair at 16 weeks post relaxer with ORS Lye Relaxer in Normal strength. My routine hasn't changed from how I prep my hair for relaxer day and how it actually goes as seen here.

I was originally going to relax my hair last weekend but prepping didn't happen, which is extremely important. Last week has been tough, as my hair struggled to stay moisturized, tangle free and no single strand knots. I really need to start incorporating glycerine fast to see if it will help. I’m so over this stretch right now and I pray my ends doesn’t hate me. I do feel like doing a major trim but we will see. Lets get into my washday.

Once I get deep into my stretch, I like to see my edges laid because its looks neat and professional. I always spray my moisturizing mix on my edges before apply aloe vera gel on my edges. I opted not to brush my new growth, since the line of demarcation is so fragile but to use my hands to smoothen out my hair. I was extremely surprised by the amount of new growth which you can see by the clear distinction between my colored hair and new growth.
