Anyway, back to my wash day. I pre-pooed with grapeseed oil and platted my hair into 14 braids (thought I'd give the braids another try, but don't think I'll be doing it again; to tedious for me and hard to get all the conditioner out while my hair is braided). I shampooed with Clean Slate shampoo diluted with water in an applicator bottle applying to my scalp.
Next I towel dried my hair lightly and allowed my hair to air dry until it was about 90% dry. I then applied my leaveins (Darcy's Daily Leave-In and PM Super Skinny Serum). Tied my new 100% silk scarf around my edges to make them lie flat. My scarf had arrived just in time for my wash (right in the middle of it actually). LOL! Love it by the way. Got it on amazon.

still love it! :)
Sorry if this post is a bit disorganized. Thought I throw it up right quick, because I started to feel a little lazy I almost didnt post at all. Shame on me. I was much much happier with this wash so I had to post. :) I am about 4 1/2 weeks post right now. Still having the texlaxed hair issues going on so this new rollerset method helped. On my next relaxer I plan to use ORS Olive Oil Lye Relaxer in Regular Strength instead of the Mild Relaxer I have been using. I still want to try to stay texlaxed but just not with so much texture. Hoping this will work out better for me. I will probably stretch around 8 weeks this time (not quite a long term stretcher yet). Plus I am going to visit family around that time so I want my hair to look decent.
Another side note, I've been all over the Long Hare Care Forum for new hair tips and have so many things I want to try. Several ladies expressed that they use S-Curl to help with stretching. I also got a good tip on Aloe Vera Juice rinses from Lydz at Crowning Glory and I've heard tell of it on the LHCF as well. Another one I read about on a LHCF thread was the french perm stabilizer. I'd like to do some research on this. There are so many things I want to try and I'm learning so much from the ladies on the LHCF and my fellow hair obsessed bloggers. I am still on that search for my perfect regimen, that's what a journey is all about, right?
Well, thanks for reading and Happy Hair Growing!!! :)
