www.justgrowalready.com. She is my "hair-ro". Play on words, yep I'm corny. Anywho, she's has done an amazing job and has given me a lot of motivation with my hair journey.
I won't say I was successful in replicating the process, and it was kind of difficult especially being my first time self-relaxing in a long time. So, I first parted my hair into four sections. Used Roux Porosity control conditioner on my previously relaxled hair to close pores and protect from relaxer run off. Then I parted each section into 1 inch sections basing my scalp with vaseline between each. I twisted each 1 inch section also to keep them separated so it would be easier to go back and apply the relaxer to my new growth. I covered the front half of my head with a platic cap using duck-bill clips to hold in place. Next I applied the relaxer to the back half using my Sprush that I won from the Just Grow Already Sprush Give Away. I was so excited to use this (I NEVER win anything so I was shocked). I started toward the center of my head and worked my way back doing my back edges last. I went through and smoothed each section with my fingers unding the twists as I went. Jumped in the shower and rinsed used Aphogee 2 Minute Recontructor for my protein treatment for 2 minutes. I rinsed that out and then shamppoed with the neutralizing shampoo (several times as I kept seeing pink; couldnt keep count). I did the front half the same way. I then deep conditioned under my steamer for 30 minutes (turned backwards for 15 minutes to get my nape).
|this was before my trim. My hair is so thin toward|
the center. I try my best to hide it. :(
|This is after my Super Cuts trim; I felt like|
my hair appeared thicker. Still tryin to hide how
thin it looks. This will change soon I hope.
