To prepare for my relaxer, I did a clarifying shampoo on Thursday 20th January and I did a protein treatment on Monday 24th January, I avoided washing my hair afterwards. I then coated my relaxed ends with carrot oil the night before my relaxer to prevent over processing. I used Organic Root Stimulator Extra Strength- my hair did not burn and furthermore my hairdresser applied the relaxer throughout my hair and combed it through and then left it a bit longer in my hair. My gosh my hair must be coarse! Anyway results:
I am very happy, my hair is growing (so far 3 people have asked if it's my real hair lol) and I see progress in my ends and the overall health of my hair. I can't stop touching my hair- I can finally get a comb through :)
I will definitely be using this striped shirt in all of my length check pictures now to make comparisons soo much easier.
