Finally after stretching my hair for 22 weeks (5 months) I texlaxed my hair. I really don’t know why, but I was really lazy this time to texlax my hair. For the new diary readers, I texlax my hair at home. Normally I stretch my hair between 16 – 20 weeks, but yeah here I am at 22 weeks post.
For some strange reason I don’t want to texlax my hair or let me say, I can’t find the time. Last week I went to the beauty supply store and bought a pack, so that I could texlax my hair. Well, a week has gone by and I still haven’t texlax my hair. To give my hair some rest from all the tension, I decided not to style my hair in a high bun for the whole week. I was doing well until Friday. I think after finally texlaxing my hair, I want to braid my hair so I can give my hair a break from bunning all the time!
It’s that time again, the laziness is kicking in. Being 17 weeks post relaxer, I should be more consistent with washing my hair, but yeah here we are again.
STEP 1 | SHAMPOO
To wash my hair I used ORS Monoï Oil Fortifying Shampoo. In sections of two I washed my hair. Lately I have been washing my hair in two sections instead of four sections. Not that it’s a bad thing, but the switch is funny to me. During the wash I could feel that my hair was ‘over’ moisturized. How? Well I always take a view hair stands and stretch it. When a strand has an elastic feel to it (just like an elastic rubber) then my hair is ‘over’ moisturized. That’s a sign for me that I need to do a protein treatment.
Today was must that a protein treatment was part of my routine. It’s been a while that I did a protein treatment. I say this every time ‘I need to step up my game, when it comes to protein’, but I’m the worst. When I notice that my hair is breaking then I reminded myself, ow it’s time for a protein.
For the last two weeks I have been wearing my wig as a protective style. I’m trying to leave my hair alone and protect it from the weather. So far I’m holding on. Before I started with the protective style I did a protein treatment, two weeks ago, to strengthen my hair. I planned to wear my wig for another 3 weeks – I hope I can manage, after a while I miss my hair – .
At this moment I’m 18 weeks post relaxer
For a while I wanted to do a pre-poo ‘oil’ treatment with my steamer. I applied vitamin E oil mixed with a little bit of Jojoba oil all over my hair and scalp. Normally I would use Castor or Coconut oil, but I wanted to try something different. I used the Huetiful Hair Steamer for the treatment. After the treatment the front of my hair felt soft, but the back felt a bit stiff – weird -, I need to play with using Vitamin E oil for a pre-poo treatment-.
