After protective styling my hair for four weeks, it was time for a prober wash routine. On Friday I took down my braids. I always make sure that my scalp can breathe, for I start the wash routine.
It was time to clarify my hair. But for this step I used to shampoos, Mizani PuripHying Shampoo (Clarifing) and ORS HAIRepair Invigorating Shampoo (Moisturizing). This was my first time using the HaiRepair shampoo.
With every stretch I tell myself that I won’t go further than 18 weeks post, but here I’m again at 24 weeks post relaxer. Don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with stretching for a long period of time – I have been doing that for the longest – but I wanted to try something different and see how my hair will react.
With every stretch my focus has been with retaining my length. At times I’m still dealing the extreme breakage and split ends. Like sometimes I will talk to my hair and ask “Can I get a break?” and living in the Netherlands doesn’t help either – the weather is pissing me off- but on the positive note, I’m happy with my new growth. I’m transitioning from relaxed hair (bone straight texture) to texlaxed hair (semi straight hair).
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.
I’m still protective styling with a wig. During the week I made sure that I applied an oil – Almond Oil – to my edges and nape. Because of my birthday my sister took me on a spa date. I planned not to get my hair wet, but who was I kidding. My wig got wet and because of the weight, it pulled down my wig. Because of the pulling my edges was extra sensitive – ugh -.
Sunday afternoon I took off my wig and braids. I let my scalp breath for the whole day. Monday was washday – sometimes you got to switch it up –
The last time I clarified my hair was a month and view weeks ago. That is not keeping up with my monthly regimen – the plan is every 4 weeks -. In small sections I shampooed my hair with Mizani Puriphying Shampoo. After the second was I wrapped my hair with a cotton t-shirt.
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.
