So what's been helping? Washing my hair in sections for one. It has made it SOOO much easier to detangle which can be an issue when the new growth starts "kickin". Lol! Also thanks to my Magic Star Jumbo Rake I've been seeing much less breakage. I'll have to say that my French Perm Stabilizer is helping with softening and detangling as well. I've been using it at the end of my washes. Moisture Moisture and more Moisture! This makes my new growth happy. Also after washing, I let my hair air dry until its about 80% dry and then I will pull it into a little bun to finish air drying with my silk scarf tied around my edges. This helps stretch out my new growth. I also have to give credit to my Sedu Revolution for the past couple of weeks. I don't plan to use this after this week for a while. I have been taking precautions though. I DC to boost moisturize, I use a heat protectant and I'm using a low heat setting (about 220 degrees). So hopefully I'm not doing too much damage.
I'm not sure what I'll be doing from here since I'm not planning to flat iron anymore. I wanted to continue my rollersets, but for some reason I feel like I've been getting a lot of breakage doing these so I'm afraid to continue. Am I applying to much tension maybe? I especially worry about how much tension I've been applying in the back which I feel is my weak area as it always seems to be very thin there. I even let my hair dry a little so detangling is easier and re-wet when I get ready to set the roller, but that's when I notice the hair coming out. I would air dry, but then my hair would look like a big poofy mess. If anyone has any tips to get smooth airdrying results, please let me know. I tried on some wigs last weekend and I just felt like I looked silly. Some can really rock them, but unfortunately not me. I'm still trying to figure this out, if anyone has any suggestions please comment below! Maybe I'll try braid outs again or a braid and twist. I don't do them much because I hate how they look with my thin hair, but it may be worth a try to keep my stretch going.
Thanks for reading,
