First Relaxer For 2021!

At 8 weeks post, I was pretty much satisfied with the growth and I'm glad I did relax it. It was quite difficult managing the new growth with such length. I know I hardly post pictures of my hair these days; it's because I'm more interested in giving tips. However, I started this blog to document my hair journey and although for 4 years I wasn't actively growing my hair, it's just t right to share the ups and downs now that I'm growing it back.  This length reminds of 2012 when I'd moved from natural to relaxed and was super excited!  With full neck length, the next target is full shoulder length and the rest of the year should be enough to reach that.  With this, my next touch up will be first week of May, around my birthday. For now, I'll wash the haor during the week and deep condition it. I'm gathering some Ayurveda herbs down to prepare a couple of hair masks so stay tuned. 

John Frieda Frizz Wash Day!

I'm super excited about the John Frieda anti frizz range and can't wait to use it more! Prepoo: Used creme of nature plex bond mender to prepoo Shampoo: Applied the John Frieda shampoo and washed 2x with it Hair rinse: Applied green tea rinse, left it for 5 minutes and followed with John Frieda conditioner. Leave in: Used doo gro leave in treatment, applied a little Jamaican black castor oil and wore the hair in a wet bun to dry This is the mess I deal with when I don't wear buns!  Overall, I'm extremely deliberate about my wash day now because I've these few months to nourish it before it hits shoulder length. To moisturize during the week, I used a mixture of S curl and Hawaiian silky moisturizer plus a bit of an oil mix! For the most part, I've been wearing my hair in a small bun daily.
