|Length check before trim|
For my relaxer, I did the half and half method as I usually do. I was worried that I ended up with bone straight results; especially on the left back side which is the side I started on, so it had a bit longer processing time than the right side. The rest of my hair seems to have reverted a bit since my last wash, but the left back still feels a bit straight. I'm hoping this will not cause any issues at my next relaxer. My plan is to coat my new growth with my Silk Remedy (Sally's comparison to Chi Silk Infusion). I usually only try to coat my previously relaxed hair, but next time I will try to coat the new growth as well. I also plan to begin relaxing on the right side instead of the left.
Other than the "over-processing" scare (well not really), my relaxer touch up turned out to be successful. I did a regular roller set and tried out the saran wrap method again. I've tried this before unsuccessfully, but never posted on it. This time was definitely a success. It was like I had flat ironed my hair without a flat iron. Perfect!
|Finger combed hair into bun|
Since relaxer day I have been in bun city and loving it! I've barely been manipulating my hair other than to moisturize or massage castor oil into my scalp. I'm hoping this is good enough for my M&S-ing though it doesn't seem to be too thorough I've been trying to get the moisturizer into most of my hair as much as possible without having to part or manipulate it into sections. It seems to be working so far.
So far so good on this journey of mine. I may be starting my wash day tonight. I have not washed in two weeks. I have been so busy studying I couldn't even take the time for my weekly wash and my hair is screaming for a cleanse.
I hope all is continuing to go well with everyone's journey!
