Even though i got my relaxer about 12 days ago, i haven’t been maintaining my hair like i should…but now that i have all the hair products i need, i have decided to restart my healthy hair journey which i had stopped in a way.

ORGANIC ROOT STIMULATOR (ORS)

I bought 2 products from this brand (ORS) and i think i will absolutely love them 🙂 First off:

It is rich in essential fatty acids that infuse moisture directly into the scalp and hair shaft.

Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Nourishing Sheen Spray is a non-greasy sheen enhancer created to restore the hair’s natural moisture balance.

THATS NOT YOUR HAIR

Yep. Thats what i’ve been told. A family member told me that my hair looked like plastic…is that a compliment? I have just come from the hospital and the pharmacist there asked if this is my real hair? I told her it was and she said, “what are you saying?” I said, “yea…its mine”. She said that she was looking at my part and the rest looked like a weave…i told her that i got a perm last week and before that it was natural…

Looks like am back to where i was 5 years ago when people would ask me if my hair was real (as opposed to a weave). It takes a little getting used to. I have always taken it as a compliment 🙂 I remember when i came home after getting the perm, my mum asked if it was all mine… 🙂

I am 1 week 1 day post relaxer and my hair looks really good. As if i just had it done. Funny thing is that in 3 days time i will be back in the salon for treatment and i bet it will still look as good as it does right now.

On Sunday (day after tomorrow) I will be attending a family lunch party thing and no one in my extended family knows about my relaxer…can’t wait to see their reaction! My cousins will be shocked that i did it then they will be like “you cut your hair again?” haha… this will be interesting

CROSS WRAP

I was right about wrapping my hair all the way around my head. I have been doing a cross wrap for the past few nights instead and even though they haven’t been perfect, they worked. My scalp isn’t as sore as it was 🙂

All i did was comb all my hair back and pin it using 2 bobby pins. I thought i would need to buy clips for that but the pins worked out fine.

I have a few bumps/dents at the back from the cross wrap so tonight i will try and make it better. I sure hope that doesn’t mess up the outcome of my new staple hairdo later when i go out :-/
