2 Weeks Post Relaxer +New Products

My hair is now 2 weeks post relaxer and though I haven't mentioned it yet, I got the relaxer done but I decided to texlax it now. The essence is to maintain thickness as the hair grows outn. The next touch up is due mid April, we'll, that's the goal. That will put me around 15 weeks post relaxer, a good stretch.For this week's wash, I went for groganics deep freeze follicle cleanser & Scalp stimulant absorbent shampoo and conditioner. The grogranics is a DHT blocker system.You may have never heard of DHT until recently, but if you’re experiencing hair loss, it’s probably at the root (sorry) of your problems.DHT, or dihydrotestosterone, is a male sex hormone that binds to receptors in your scalp and precipitates male pattern baldness in genetically-susceptible men.

Weekly Scalp Maintenance

My hair has grown considerably better in the past few weeks so I can now apply oils to massage the scalp.In as much as I dislike the smell of my oil mixture, I just have to finish it up. I use it each day in the morning to massage the scalp.To make the smell more tolerable, I grabbed a bottle of the ors hairepair vital oils for hair and scalp. I will be using this for the hair itself and I use the oil mix for scalp. This is a year of length retention and I'm going all out to do so. I'm not on any hair vitamins except the collagen powder since I'm through with the 30 day beauty secret vitamins. After this, the next one I'll be taking is most likely another collagen LOL. How's your hair doing?Stay tuned for more updates.

The Hair Challenges for January

Welcome to 2019 and I pray we hit our resolutions hard!I'm beginning with the usual monthly challenges but this time with a twist. My challenge consists of keeping dryness off and maintaining healthy scalp. 1. Prepoo with Olive oil,avocado n Carrot blended  *4x a week Green house effect *2x Co wash and deep conditioning *Garlic and onion  infused hot oilThe oils will be prepared next week as I'm currently on vacation Lol. I'll be using the carrot, avocado and olive oil blend for the green house effect too. My hair is currently very short but as usual, when you treat your hair right, it grows right. By the way, my hair is all natural now. I did a short transition, enough to have hair on my head after trimming off the relaxed ends. That's exactly what I needed to revamp my hair journey without losing length! I'm pretty excited about that. I'm able to comb and part it to style which feels good too. At the end of the day, I've achievedy first goal without havin…
