Wash routine for relaxed hair
It was highly time for a protein treatment. I’m doing a bad job with my monthly regimen. I noticed that my hair was breaking, and it’s really because my hair is screaming for protein.
Wash routine for ‘relaxed‘ hair My hair was dry as #@$!. So I started off with a pre-poo treatment by using Olive Oil. In sections of three I applied the oil to my hair and scalp. I did the pre-poo treatment for like an hour without heat.
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).
23 weeks post relaxer
For the last past weeks I have been really active with protective styling my hair. It has helped me to keep my hair moisturized. Although I’m pleased with my protective styles I want to step my game up.
 To clean my scalp and hair I used Mizani Moisturfusion Milk Bath Shampoo. Like always I shampooed my hair twice. After the wash I used a t-shirt to dry my 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.
It’s been a while that posted anything about my wash day. Because of the protective styling (wearing a wig) I have been skipping my wash days. That was NOT the plan, but how my schedule was, I couldn’t find the right time. So on Wednesday (October 21) I finally washed my hair. My scalp was screaming for it.
On Saturday (October 17) I did a search and destroy method, but before I knew I was trimming my hair. I am at the point that I’m tired of the thin ends. Somebody asked me ‘why don’t you cut your hair? To be honest I’m asking myself the same question’. For some strange reason I don’t want to go back to SL (Shoulder Length Hair). So I’m taking baby steps with trimming my hair.
I shampooed my hair with Mizani Supreme Oil Shampoo. The shampoo is a new member to my Mizani collection. While washing my hair I have noticed that the hair loss (shedding / breakage) has reduced. I hope I can keep it to a minimal. After washing my hair twice, I used a cotton t-shirt to wrap my hair.
