How are y'all doing?! My birthday was yesterday so I got my hair texlaxed just because I wanted sleek edges for my birthday (not that I was going anywhere extraordinary...)but yeah I self-texlaxed at 12 weeks post relaxer a week before on the 16th and I used my all time fave, silk elements olive oil relaxer and enjoyed every bit of the treatment-
I spent a total of 15 minutes from start to finish, no combing, fully coated my ends with conditioner and coconut oil, no scalp burns and nicely textured hair!!
Took a texture shot of my roots just before I started;
Look at my ponytail after, see all the texture from root to tip...loving this texlaxed life!!
My hair is now fully at Bra Strap level- BSL, I didn't straighten it and didn't bring my length check T shirt on my trip so I don't have an accurate measurement but from the pics I took it sure is BSL.
Loving the pace in which my hair is growing...presently my hair is in layers as I gave it a nice new year trim. I have accepted that if you don't go in there and trim what needs to be trimmed and give your hair layers with scissors, your hair will help you out and layer itself but you will most likely be left with unsightly ends (uneven scraggly ends). I will resume Youtube texlax update videos so I can actually show how I manage my different lengths, how I dust my ends etc.
In March my hair will start post partum shedding for about a month if I'm to go by how it happened for my last two pregnancies, I'm fully prepared for that, post partum shedding doesn't scare me as much again at least not as much as my Inverted V coming back, that gives me straight up nightmares but I'm watching the back of my hair very closely and so help me God there will be no more set backs.
That's all for my texlax update, I'm owing a shopping trip post but I held out that post because there is this shop I discovered on Instagram in Houston where I am that is PACKED with a product junky like me's wants and desires and I have to head there first before I conclude my shopping trip...So stay tuned for that....P.S restrictions on Nigerian bank cards and our sad exchange rate has made this trip such a hassle for me and that's why I cannot even open an import window...hopefully things settle down and get better and we resume in our product junkie ways :) but stay tuned for that post and a compilation of all those who have entered the 2016 growth challenge!!
Thanks for stopping by,
