How's everyone doing? Hope all's well at your ends!! I am finally here with my relaxer update, its been about 2 weeks already since I got it done and I didn't want this month to end without me giving an update and putting up pictures! So here goes;
I relaxed my hair on the 18th of July, exactly 15weeks and 4 days post relaxer, I talk about how well my stretch went here. I used my usual relaxer which I stay in love with :)
Had it on my hair for 25minutes max (from application to smoothing out with a tail comb). I coated my hair in 3 sections from my mid shaft to my ends with Biosilk's conditioner and olive oil to prevent those section from absorbing any relaxer especially as I rinsed out the relaxer.
Could already see how much length retention I had when I was done smoothing out the relaxer;
Once I rinsed out the relaxer, I let my hair air dry and then followed up with moisturizing and sealing with some new products I will review in my next post, if you follow me on Instagram @Naijahaircangrow you already saw some of the products :) Then I used a few pumps of Paul Mitchell's super skinny serum and straightened my hair;
My roots came out straight with just the right texture not bone straight, edges came out sleek, my very ends however need to catch up to each other, I am giving them time...
After cutting 3inches off my hair in May I had my fingers crossed about my length retention after such a long stretch( long stretches done improperly can cause more harm than good) but I am very satisfied with my retention of about 2inches after the stretch, so satisfied that I will stretch till December and see if I can get my hair to fall on LINE 11 by the end of the year, the goal was LINE 13 but thanks to my quest for sharp ends I am settling for line 11 and we can take it from there...
That's all for my relaxer update, hope all the stretchers in the house are inspired! It is indeed possible to successfully stretch your relaxer treatments. Thanks for stopping by as usual. Stay tuned for my hair products haul and reviews especially patronisers of SHOP NHCG which will soon be back in business!!!
