How to Wash Hair After A Week Relaxer

Image
As this post centers on post relaxer hair care, I thought it might be more beneficial for new readers to know a few tips on how to wash hair after relaxing it. 

The basic regimen still applies except that for me,  I clarify or chelate post relaxer to guarantee that there aren't any relaxer left overs as well as strengthen the hair again.



**Prepooed for about 2 hours  with aloe vera and oil mix (the same one I mixed up weeks ago!) 

**I clarified with Sheamoisture African black soap shampoo, did a coffee rinse and deep conditioned with aphogee 2 minutes reconstructor, and then the aphogee Balancing Moisturizer for moisture protein balance. 



I deep conditioned with the balancing moisturizer for about an hour. 





I went the extra mile to blow dry and flat iron with my new straightener from kikuu but an insect fell into my left eye in the process so I boycotted it! 



Don't Dilute Your Jamaican Black Castor Oil

At least not too much with other oils.

A major complaint with using Jamaican Black Castor Oil is the thickness of the oil. The oil is so thick that some people mix or dilute with other oils to thin the castor oil out before use. Others also find their  scalp too itchy when the Jamaican Black Castor Oil is used directly on the Scalp.

Well,  every product is made to operate at its optimum best thus when you dilute it,  you tend to reduce the potency.

After making this discovery,  it's better to rethink about how to get the most out of the Jamaican Black Castor Oil.

Benefits of Overnight Hair Growth Treatment

24 hours after the egg treatment, I put the hair into flexi rods. 



I really loved how easy it fitted into my hair and I can't wait to have full curls. 

Here's where I noticed some interesting changes in my hair. 


Strengthened hair : my hair wasn't as hard as I feared yet it wasn't also super soft. This kind of treatment can definitely benefit the hair prior to relaxer so that's what I'm going to do. 
Thicker hair is also another change I saw. Prior to the egg treatment, my hair felt quite light thus the treatment came at the  right time. 
  Smoother and shiny hair is a plus with this treatment too. 


In all,  I guess the overnight hair growth bandwagon has reopened my heart to using eggs. I'll do another treatment before the end of October or prior to relaxing.
