Its that time of the year, had my first texlax on Thursday at 10 weeks post after battling with the idea of stretching to 12 weeks post...my last touch up which left one part of my hair really under processed made it really hard for me to manage my new growth so I decided to go ahead and texlax it before I suffered a set back.
I texlaxed with my relaxer of the past 4 years....
This time I did things a little different, I wanted to ensure that I texlaxed my hair as accurately as possible, so I added a cap full of extra virgin avocado oil to my relaxer and mixed it thoroughly...this slows down the potency of the relaxer...
The next new thing I did is something I have wanted to try for a while but been quite lazy on relax day to try it...I divided my hair into 2 sections and applied the relaxer to one section, smooth it out and rinsed it within 15 minutes, before I started work on the other half of my hair.
This allowed me take my time to go through each section of the hair without rushing through the whole head like in the past where I would be left with one section more processed than the other.
I will be using this method to texlax moving forward and will offer this method at the hub.( Call 08090613325 to book a texlax appointment if in Lagos :)
When I was done I was left with the best most even texlax I have ever had;
|Few inches from being fully texlaxed!|
As you can see I am loving the way my hair looks, I still have very few bone straight ends to go as you can see in the picture below;
|GOT TO LINE 5 BUT THOSE ENDS NEEDED CLIPPING.|
|Bone straight ends left...|
After a little trim, I did a little comparison with my length check T- shirt and was pleased to see that my hair was now comfortable past line 3 and was now on line 4 meaning I had retained length from my last length check when my hair was primarily on a 3.

My hair now after my trim...grazing line 4;
Oh and let's see how my middle back hair is recovering from this;
Here it is;
I feel so much better about my hair, more confident...loving the fullness and the movement...I will never sacrifice healthy ends for length ever again...as I said before, if it will take me longer to get to my goal length of full MBL then I am willing to wait...no pressure, its not a race nor a competition...so my dear readers watch and learn how to COME BACK from a SET BACK!!
