Relaxer Update (4): Last Relaxer For 2012

Image
Alright! The deed has been done-I relaxed yesterday, 12 weeks after my last relaxer. It’s been a joyful as well as frustrating journey.
The joy was in knowing that I was doing the right thing for my hair by stretching my relaxer. It’s made the hair thicker and bouncier, soft and silky. The fullness got my hair dresser excited and another client said she wouldn’t fix a weave if her hair was like that. I don’t bother discussing hair with people anymore because most often, they wouldn’t believe or take what you say. My hair dresser stretches for six months so she’s not surprised that I also stretch.

MVP Nourishing Leave-In And Styling Lotion Review

Image
After using my liquid leave-in conditioner, I knew a creamy leave-in will be the best option for me. I went over to a cosmetic shop and requested for the leave-ins they had and as I held each one, the MVP stood out as the creamy one.

--> On the journey of  discovery for more insight  into the hisory of African/Black Hair.I discovered a video called 400 Years Witout a Comb- The Inferior Seed by Willie Morrow, author of 400 Years Without A Comb. I must say that the acting is bit bad and the video quality is not soo great (its very old).However, the information in the entire set of  6 videos is very informative and insightful.

2013 Hair Care: Regimen And Products

Image
In order to succeed in the coming year, I have put some measures in place. You may think your mother is the best cook until another mother's cooking. The same applies to hair products; you'll never know how others work until you test them. For all you know, they would work better for you. Therefore, even though some products and regimen worked well for me this year, I'll venture into new ones (See post on 2012 In Review: Hair Care Products for products I won't use again and those I'll be keeping). For now, these are the things I’d love to do. 
Protective style with my own hair. I have to learn how to cornrow this year. Seriously!Pre-poo before every wash whether overnight or with hooded dryer. When I get the dryer, I’ll pre-poo with it and do the overnight deep conditioning.

Wash Day With Coconut Cream Deep Conditioner

Ok, I know this update is late but I still want to fulfill my promise of showing you my results from using the coconut deep conditioner. Alright, let’s get to business!
I used banana and the coconut cream I got as a Christmas gift last year-I didn’twant it to go waste since it’s been almost seen a year on the shelf. I checked the expiring date to be sure I was using a good stuff.
