It’s best to have a routine that caters to your hair when you are taking care of your relaxed hair at home. Finding a routine aka regimen for my hair hasn’t been an easy road, but the outcome to sticking to a routine did wonders. I mean, before my hair journey my new growth was soft & stiff and know I’m able to stretch my hair for 20+ weeks.
Taking care of you hair can be a task. Let me emphasize on the word CAN. In the beginning of my hair journey I did everything what I thought was needed, but over the years, I have found a hair regimen that works for me, my lifestyle & hair.
a systematic plan especially designed to improve and maintain the health of your hair.
“Create a hair routine that your hair needs”
I spoke a little bit about having a hair regimen a.k.a. a hair routine that caters to your hair. There is no one way regimen when it comes to having & maintaining healthy hair, but you need a hair regimen.
Before I go in and share my hair regimen, I want to make it clear I’m not talking about hair products. A hair regimen is a routine based on treatments that you do for your hair.
It’s time for the creamy crack! I’m fighting with myself when I’m styling my hair. Being 20 weeks post relaxer is getting exhausting. With my next stretch I’m going back to 16 weeks of stretching. As always for retouching my new growth I used ORS No-Lye Relaxer.
In my previous post I mentioned that I was dealing with breakage especially in my crown area. My hair was growing, but the length in middle was not matching up. Also I have been in a nasty funk when it comes to my hair. I wasn’t pleased with any hair style, so I knew it was time for a change. It’s time to cut my relaxed hair.
I have a confession! After relaxing my hair in February, I stayed at family member place for 3 weeks. During that period is when the laziness of not taking care of my hair became worse. Although I kept up with washing my every week, I failed in how I needed to take care of my hair during the week.
When I started my relaxed hair journey I didn’t know where to begin. So finding ladies on YouTube that shared their relaxed hair regimen was a blessing. My hair needed a solid hair routine to get my relaxed hair healthy again.
