I started out by detangling and sectioning my hair into four parts. I then coated the length of my hair with GVP Silk Remedy that I got from Sally's (it's supposed to compare with CHI Silk Infusion) and Roux Porosity Control to protect from relaxer runoff. I planned to begin with the back half (doing the half and half relaxer method that I've used before). I placed metal duckbill clips along the horizontal part between the front and back half to separate the front section of my hair. I clipped the two front sections with butterfly clips and covered with a plastic clap.

Next I relaxed the front half in the same manner, first making sure that my hair was not damp from working on the back half. Since I am texlaxing, I was almost worried that I'd left the relaxer on too long. The roots in the back half seemed to be straighter than I expected, but I'm hoping to see some reversion there after my next wash.
I deep conditioner using my ORS Curls Unleashed under my heating cap for several hours. I fell asleep wearing the heat cap then I just took it off and went on to bed. When I rinsed again my hair felt so soft and smooth. After rinsing the DC I t-shirt dried for maybe 30 min and then applied Darcy Daily Leave In and Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum. I allowed my hair to air dry with my silk scarf tied around my edges and then ended up pulling it into a bun.

How was your most recent relaxer touch-up? Do you self relax and if so what's your method?
Thanks for reading,
