Am 12 weeks 4 days post relaxer today!
I wore my hair straight (and down) for 4 weeks straight. That meant going for 2 weeks at a time without washing it. I normally wash my hair once a week (sometimes twice a week) so you can imagine how happy i was to finally wash it yesterday.
I decided to clarify my hair because it had been 2 weeks since my last wash and i just needed to get my hair and scalp squeaky clean. I used the Enliven shampoo.
I added some glycerin and coconut oil to my deep conditioner. As you can tell from the picture below, i like to thoroughly coat my hair with the product. Thank God its cheap 😀
Right before i rinsed off the deep conditioner, i detangled my hair. That was actually easy but i lost a lot of hair…or it seemed more than i usually lose (shedding).
I pulled my hair back so that i could stretch my roots (new growth). I have slightly over 1 inch of new growth.
I decided to air dry my hair in a bun because it tends to get big, frizzy and overly dry if left in a ponytail.
Its been a while since i wore my hair in a bun. I took it down in the evening and i don’t plan on rocking buns for a while.
Happy St. Patrick’s day!
