Thinking Out Loud


Wet wrap results - no flat iron used

I am SOOOO ready to be fully texlaxed. I almost thought about throwing out the idea because I miss my wet wraps so badly.  My hair always came out so smooth and soft with absolutely NO direct heat as seen in one of my previous wash days here.  But I know the benefits of texlaxing will be worth it. Stronger thicker hair.  And now that I'm getting my rollersetting skills down, this should be a breeze.


My hair is definitely growing at the average rate of a half inch per month.  It seems sooooo slow.  I am way too impatient.  I keep thinking to myself "why couldn't I have started my HHJ three years ago? I'd be at my goal by now."  Well if I had started 3 years ago I would have been saying the same thing then. Ha! Patience patience patience is key!



I couldn't even wait.  I've been wanting to get my hands on the Magic Star Jumbo Rake.  I actually purchased the set last night (Jumbo and Mini).  I'm super excited about this purchase.  I'll keep the mini in my purse for when I'm out and about. A perfect addition to my aresenal of hair care items! :)

 

Protective styling....what to say about this.  I need to experiment with more styles.  All I do is pull it up and clip it.  I'm just trying to be careful with my hair.  My hair is not very dense, which I hate.  I feel like a lot of styles don't look too great with my thin hair.  Plus I have very fine strands so I try not to do too much to my hair to avoid causing any breakage.  But I'm getting tired of my boring look.  When I'm closer to being fully texlaxed I hope to experiment a lot more.  But right now I feel like a wig may be in order.

  3. Thanks for the reminder to order another Magic Star Jumbo Rake! Last wash day, I panicked because I couldn't find it. The thought crossed my mind that it was lost forever and then all my hair would fall out. Ha-ha. I'm so dramatic sometimes. Eventually I found it. But I absolutely need to buy another one just in case the unfortunate day comes that this one disappears!

    It took me almost 2 years to get fully texlaxed. And I promise that once you start---you'll never want to be relaxed bone straight again. Well---at least I don't...

    Besitos

    1. I don't know what I'd do if I lost my HS comb! Probably freak out! Ha ha!
      Although I only started texlaxing in October 2012 , I think I'm starting to get used to my hair not being bone straight anymore. My texlaxed hair feels so much stronger than the rest of my length. I've wanted to try bantu knot outs and other creative styles but I worry about manipulating my weak bone straight ends and causing too much breakage. 2 years, huh? Whew, I guess I'll just have to be patient.

  4. It's unfortunate I'm not able to purchase another hair product until the end of the month lol. (I have to limit myself) I would definitely be purchasing one of those combs ASAP.
    As far as texlaxing goes, it's awesome. I think it's the best of both worlds and I'm sure your hair will give you better volume and thickness because of it. Good luck girl!

  5. I have been on my HJ for 9months now and i often say to myself "i should have started my hair journey 2 yrs ago lol". Yup patience is key and Knowledge is Power. Those combs look so inviting.....Good luck on your texlaxed Journey!

  6. Those combs are a MUST have for texlaxers, transitioners and naturals. They are SO amazing and keeps breakage to a minimum. I use it when I shower detangle and I get virtually NO breakage. You will love it! Texlaxing is amazing! The added strength and thickness takes some getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, it becomes a piece of cake!

    1. When I first started my HHJ I saw the jumbo rake and thought "what the heck am I gonna do with combs that wide?" I didn't even think twice about it, but now that I'm further into my journey I see why they are a must, especially for anyone transitioning. And if I hadn't witnessed how smooth texlaxed hair can get after a rollerset, I probably really would have given up. lol
