I’m getting ready, because one more week and I can finally texlax my new growth. Prepping my hair for next week treatment. I planned to do a protein treatment to strengthen my hair and get my hair ready for relaxing.
Wash day texlaxed hair | Saturday 13 January
Normally I would do a protein and clarifying treatment every 4 weeks, but my hair was in need of a protein treatment. It was time to get rid of the build-up of hair products. For the last two weeks I really focused on moisturizing my hair on a daily base. But I noticed that moisturizing too much makes my hair dull. Don’t get me wrong, I will keep on moisturizing, but I need to co-wash during the week to keep the balance.

SUNDAY 17 DECEMBER
In week 49 I was supposed to do a protein treatment, and guess what …. I wasn’t able to because I ran out of ApHogee Two Step Protein Treatment. Last week I decided to combine clarifying and protein treatment together. It is really important for to stick to the monthly routine!
Wash routine for relaxed hair
aka texlaxed hair
It is time for the monthly treatment … Protein time!!
Normally the first step will be starting with a conditioner treatment, but this time around I wanted to wash my hair first and then apply a protein conditioner. For the wash I used ORS Olive Oil Hydration Shampoo – in its pure form – In sections of four I washed my hair twice. I have been using this shampoo for over a month now – review coming soon –
At this point I’m 18 weeks post relaxer and I debating with myself when I should get a relaxer. My new grow feels good, soft and manageable. Only the new growth at my edges and nape are rough, but I don’t mind that. But I’m looking for a regimen to fix the texture at my nape and edges – it’s kind of my problem area-
I haven’t done a pre poo treatment for a while now, and it’s just because of the laziness – I need to stop being so lazy-. In two sections I washed my hair with Mizani Botanifying Conditioning Shampoo. During the wash I felt that my hair was over moisturized. – When your hair feels like an elastic band when stretching you know what time it is –
Last week I did a protein treatment with ORS Hair Mayonnaise and I also did s search & destroy method. I started real strong with my treatment and at the ending I was slacking off. After a protein treatment it’s important to deep condition your hair with a moisture based product. I don’t know why but I decided to do a quick treatment with TRESemmé Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner. This is a light conditioner – perfect to co-wash with, but not for a deep condition –. But oke my hair felt good after I was done with the routine. After a view days I noticed that my hair really needed some moisture and what did I do …. Nothing – ugh -. Oke nothing is a strong word, but I didn’t moisturize my hair daily as I should do.
So with this was routine I decided that I will only use moisture based product.
I started with a pre poo treatment using Organix Hydrating Macadamia Oil Conditioner. In small sections I applied the product to my hair. The product was left on my hair for 30 minutes without heat.
