At this moment I’m 19 weeks post and I am happy with my new growth. I can still manage. I said that I will relax my hair when I reach 20 weeks post, but I first want to do a protein treatment to prep my hair for a relaxer. During the week my nape suffered from dryness. I would moisturize at night, but in the morning it was still dry – I need to find a remedy for my nape -.
Pre poo treatment
For the treatment I used the oil mix (Jamaican Black Castor Oil x Coconut Oil) for the scalp and (Grape seed x Sesame seed x Coconut oil) for the hair. Before applying the oils I warmed it up with hot water. – I never use a microwave to warm up oils – for an hour I let the oils sit on my hair.

It’s been a while I used a clarifying Shampoo. The last time was in the month Ocotber. I try to clarify my hair once a month. For the wash I used Tresemme Deep cleansing shampoo. – my sister washed my hair for me. She washed my hair two times in sections of four- This wash was quick and simple, as it should be.
Although I used a clarifying shampoo, my hair wasn’t extremely dry. Last week I did a pre poo treatment while using a steamer. I think I applied too much peppermint oil to my scalp and now it’s a bit sensitive. So it was a must to clarify.
