Wash routine for relaxed hair | April 11!

2017.04.10 hair producten

It’s that time again, the laziness is kicking in. Being 17 weeks post relaxer, I should be more consistent with washing my hair, but yeah here we are again.


STEP 1 | SHAMPOO
To wash my hair I used ORS Monoï Oil Fortifying Shampoo. In sections of two I washed my hair. Lately I have been washing my hair in two sections instead of four sections. Not that it’s a bad thing, but the switch is funny to me. During the wash I could feel that my hair was ‘over’ moisturized. How? Well I always take a view hair stands and stretch it.

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.

Step 1
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.

It’s time for the creamy crack!!! I finally texlaxed my hair at 23 weeks post. I promised myself that I wasn’t going to stretch for more than 20 weeks, but hey, another 3 weeks doesn’t hurt anybody.

During the stretch I have seen positive progress with my hair. Mine new growth was nice and thick, but still manageable. The only downside were my nape and edges. I still haven’t find a regimen to grow them nicely – project saving my edges and nape is coming soon –
