I have been waiting for this day. My new growth was ready for a touch up. Stretching for 20 weeks was enough, because my new growth needed to be laid.
Step 1 | protect the scalp
When I was done with detangling my hair and sectioned it in four parts, I based my scalp with DAX Vegetable Oils Pomade for a protecting layer. When I was done with my scalp I applied Dax to the length of my hair.
Yeah boooy *flavorflavvoice! 20 weeks of stretching my relaxer is over and I can finally relax a.k.a. texlax my new growth.
I think by now you know that my hair is in need for some serious help. In my previous post I mentioned that I’m dealing with breakage and having split ends. At the moment we are dealing with the Corona crisis, but I’m dealing with some serious hair crisis. Because I still plan on stretching my hair till 20 weeks, I have called for some remedies.
Wash routine for relaxed hair | September 26!
In the weekend I was busy with some activities what led me to wash my hair during the week. Since I have relaxed my hair I have tried to leave my hair alone. Also I need to do a ‘hard’ protein treatment to strengthen my hair. This is a treatment that I need to do ASAP!
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.
relaxed hair aka texlaxed hair
Since my relaxer I noticed more hair falling out than normal – shedding & breakage – . Yeah shedding is normal, but this last week it was too much for my liking and the breakage was crazy. I know I need to step up with the protein treatment.
Before washing my hair I started with an oil treatment. I made a mix of Coconut oil with 1 tps. Olive oil. The oil was applied all over my hair and scalp. I love using an oil for my pre-poos. I did this treatment more than 2 hours.
