After 23 week being post relaxer, it’s was time to texlax my hair. Every time I tell myself that I’m not going to stretch my hair for more than 16 weeks, but hey here I am. This time around I my normal relax routine had a twist.
Wash routine for relaxed hair
It was highly time for a protein treatment. I’m doing a bad job with my monthly regimen. I noticed that my hair was breaking, and it’s really because my hair is screaming for protein.
Since my relaxer I haven’t done a protein treatment – what am I thinking – for this routine I planned to do a ‘hard’ protein treatment … but I got lazy and switched my routine. Next week doing a protein treatment is a must!!!
Search and Destroy Method: while I was detangling my hair I notice some split ends – say no to split ends –. So I decided to do a search and destroy method.
For the wash I used Mizani Moisturfusion Milk Bath Shampoo. The love for this shampoo is too much!! In sections of four I shampooed my hair, twice. After the wash I wrapped my hair with a t-shirt to towel dry.
Lately my schedule for my wash routine has been messed up. I didn’t want to wash my hair, but I HAD to. My hair was screaming for a wash. I had a b-day dinner to attend to, so there wasn’t enough time for a “take it easy wash routine”. So I did a quick wash.
In four sections I shampooed my hair with Mizani Puriphying Shampoo. I can’t remember the last time I clarified my hair, but I needed to remove all the product from the last past weeks. I washed my hair twice and wrapped my hair with a cotton t-shirt. I’m still working on minimalizing the hair loss during my wash. I need to do a research how I can go about it.
During the week my schedule was a bit off. For example, moisturizing my hair in the morning and not at night. Then there was some days I didn’t use a scarf at night. On the positive side I did more protective styles, like cornrow braid or cornrow twist my hair.
Pre poo treatment
It’s been a while, but it was definitely time for a pre-poo. I used Extra Virgin Coconut Oil all over my hair and Jamaican Black Castor Oil on my scalp. I did this treatment for an hour without heat. While I was applying the oil to my hair I noticed I had a lot of hair loss. The hair loss comes from not moisturizing my hair properly during the week.

Clarifying – protein treatment
It’s been 4 weeks now that I texlaxed my hair. Since July 18, I haven’t done a protein treatment. So you know what time it is.
Maybe you have notice, but the brand of choice for my wash routine has been Mizani. I bought a view products that I wanted to try out. For this was routine I used Mizani Puriphying Shampoo – to clarify – and Kerafuse Intense Strengthening Treatment – for protein – This was my first time using the Kerafuse Treatment.
1 -> in sections of four I shampooed my hair. Mind you it has been two weeks that I haven’t washed my hair – my hair was screaming for a wash -. Although It’s been a while that I washed my hair, I was still happy, because the hair loss was minimal.
2 -> with a cotton t-shirt I blot my hair. The Kerafuse Treatment has funny texture. It’s like a thick paste. Because it was the first using the product I didn’t know how much to apply. So I didn’t go overboard and used just enough product to cover my hair with it. The directions tells u to sit under a dryer for 10 minutes and I listened. I used my hooded dryer for 10 minutes.
