A proud moment! I hold on to stretching my hair for 20 weeks, but now is time to texlax my hair. My new growth is nice and thick. Although I was ready to texlax my hair, there was one problem. I washed my hair a few days ago, so when I decided to process my hair I still had clean scalp.
Let’s start with the process! I coated my hair with Garnier Loving Blends Honey on the part that already has been processed. On my YouTube channel “EEMSDIARY” there is a video where I demonstrate how I prepare my relaxer.

I started in the back with applying the mixture and worked my way to the front. As I was applying the mixture in the first round, there was some tingling in the back. So I knew I had to move quick with applying the mixture.
“Next time I will make sure not to relax my hair when it’s freshly washed”
The process didn’t take long. Within 15 minutes, I applied the mixture and smoothed out my new growth.
Because of my hair being semi freshly washed, my scalp was sensitive. That is why I added some Castor Oil, Peppermint oil and Rosemary oil in my conditioner.
“Peppermint oil is a life saver”
Overall I’m pleased with my hair growth and the texlaxing process. I will continue to focus on retaining my length and getting rid of the thin ends.
Let the stretching continue!
