Am 6 days post relaxer!
Yup! I relaxed my hair on the 1st of this month (last Monday), at 14 weeks 5 days post. As usual i used the ORS relaxer (normal) which i had bought a few days earlier. Having it in my room was too tempting. So i gave in. It was about time anyway. Here is all the stuff that came in the kit…
Doing my hair was actually a random plan. I had free time, a relaxer kit, and there was plenty of water – no water rationing. I didn’t take pictures this time. Didn’t even do a length check…
I started off by basing my scalp, ears, neck and forehead with Vaseline. Then i coated the already relaxed part of my hair with castor oil. The relaxer application step went by pretty fast and i had enough time to smooth my hair (this helps straighten the hair better).
Afterwards i rinsed off the relaxer, neutralized with the ORS creamy aloe shampoo and deep conditioned with the ORS replenishing conditioner. I added Extra virgin olive oil and peppermint oil to the deep conditioner (totally forgot that i use almond oil on relaxer days, but its all good).
I then applied some leave in conditioner and heat protectant and used a blow dryer to get my hair almost dry (damp?). Then i did 2 french braids. I wore it out in a braidout last week, then on Friday i did this french braid
I kept it in till today, took it down and rocked this bun for a while
I then put my hair back into a braid. I’ll mist it tonight then apply some oil and hopefully rock a braid out for the rest of the week. Am not ready to wash it yet. Its so soft and straight!
