Prepping my hair for relaxer day

Am 15 weeks & 3 days post relaxer today!

This past weekend I prepped my hair for my upcoming relaxer day (which is only 4 days away). I sure hope nothing screws up my plans. My last strengthening treatment was 2 months ago!

I happened to be up at dawn (yesterday) and so I decided to shampoo my hair at that time. I wanted to completely strip my hair of everything so I used a sulfate shampoo.

Suave shampooI would normally use the Enliven shampoo which really gets my hair squeaky clean but since I’ve been using sulfate shampoos a lot lately, I decided to go with the Suave shampoo which is milder, in my opinion.

When I was done, I wrapped my hair in a towel then went to bed (I was tired).

The plan was to let it airdry then do an egg treatment (last one was on 11th May) when i got up later. But you know how life is…i had quick & urgent errands to run.

crazy looking?

Yes, I left the house like that. In my defense, it was laid down when I left the house (because it had been wrapped up) šŸ˜€ and it was still a little damp.

When I got back home, it was one big, frizzy, fully airdried, hot mess! Lesson learnt. I parted it into 4 sections and applied the eggs.



(Am thinking of getting an actual store-bought protein treatment by the way)

I left the eggs on my hair (typing that is just odd). Anyway, I left the eggs in my hair for about 30 minutes under a plastic bag and scarf while I did a few chores around the house and then I used cold water to rinse. I decided to do a final rinse with warm water to open up the hair cuticles in readiness for the next step…deep conditioning. Turns out I didn’t get all the egg out of my hair…

cooked egg in my hair?I tried (and failed) to take a good pic of my new growth. At least you can somehow see my hair colour due to henna. I can’t get enough of it!


Deep conditioning took me about 2.5hrs


I was meeting up with my Dad for late lunch and had no time to do anything special with my (still wet) hair, so I just threw it up in a ponytail and used some gel to slick down my hairline. I let it airdry like that.

Today i rocked a very loose bun and that will be my style for the rest of the week *boring*. I don’t want to agitate my scalp.

  1. How about mixing the egg(s) into your store bought conditioner or deep conditioner…that works better for me and also masks the egg smell. I may be touching up this week as well if I get round to doing it at all but I need it my new growth is a mess!
