How's everyone doing? I'm sure from my heading y'all know I'm a happy bunny!! I got to do my last texlax for this year and I'm very pleased with the results!
I used Hawaiian Silky Argan oil relaxer and spent a total of just 12 minutes texlaxing, I also added Avocado oil to my relaxer as I really didn't want my hair over processed...
Even with all the trimming and dusting I have done this year, I was able to retain length, started the year at just past line 3 grazing 4(APL) after I had to cut most of my hair due to the inverted V breakage I experienced once again!!
|OCT '15- BSL BABY!!|
I pampered the nape area, made sure my ends stayed trimmed(every time I relaxed) and dusted(once a month) and kept up with my hair regimen and I am very happy that my hair is now grazing line 7(BSL). It feels lush, the ends look great and my nape hair is doing well.
I have layers though as the top/ front part of my hair has gotten more hair chopped off than the rest due to the fact that I saw more split ends there. Moving forward, by my next touch up in 2016( God willing), I should be full BSL with lush healthy ends. It is from there we will all have to hold hands, sing Kumbaya and pray!! Because unfortunately for me something always goes wrong to set me back once my hair is that long!!
BUT Not this time (waves fingers in the air)!! I honestly feel that I've caused the set backs in the past because I tend to neglect my ends when my hair is longer and trim less but as I have seen that I still retained length even if I was trimming regularly this year, moving forward I'll keep trimming and those ends will stay babied!!

I was looking through pictures from the start of this year and in this pic I took below on the 17th of January, my nape hair was about 8.5 inches....
Last night, I measured my nape hair, it's about 14 inches people!!
(forgot to take a pic with the tape, will update this post when I do) That's progress right there!!
Like with every journey, there will be ups and downs, it's just important to have your focus fixated on the end goal, be patient and consistent and results are bound to happen!!
So ladies, who has a testimony to share, who is enjoying progress?? Who needs help with a set back? You know I have been through it all!!! Feel free to comment below!
