HAIR PRODUCT EXPERIENCE

– ORS Olive Oil Hydration Shampoo –

HAIR PRODUCT EXPERIENCE

For some months I have been using Mizani products for my regimen, but I was ready to explore a new products – I’m really a product junkie, can’t stick to one product – I knew that ORS had added some new products to their brand, and of course I wanted to try them out.

When I came across a shampoo from the Olive Oil line ‘Olive Oil Sulfate-free Hydrating Shampoo’ I was immediately interested. Why? Well it’s a sulfate-free shampoo and it is hydrating. This product can help me with retaining moisture.

I have used the shampoo twice – March 19 & March 28 – now and let me tell you, ORS did there thing with this product. With both washes my hair was really dry. As soon I applied the product to my scalp and hair, it gave my hair a boost. For now I really don’t have nothing negative to say about this product.

I’m going use to use this shampoo for the coming two months, so that I can see what for benefits it will give my hair.

Are you familiar with this product? Then let me know what your experience is – the good and the bad –

Relaxer | February 7!

2015.02.07 products

I finally got the time to relax my hair at 21 weeks post. I planned to relax my hair last week, but due bad timing it wasn’t possible. I also wanted to do a protein treatment one week before, but I changed my mind and will do the treatment next week. So before the relaxer it didn’t prep my hair.

This time I wasn’t really happy with my new growth. The inches of growth was okay. But if look at the positive side, my new growth was soft and manageable. I could have stretch my hair for a longer period, but I want to stop at 20 weeks post.

Relaxer | Update

IMG_0633_FotorWhile  I’m writing this post  I’m 7 weeks post relaxer – woow time flies by –. I always get a happy moment when it’s time to relax my hair. The biggest struggle that I have is after how many weeks am I going to relax. There has never been regular cycle for relaxing. This time I relaxed my hair after 22 weeks (5 months).

For relaxer treatment I used ORS no-lye formula in normal. I have been using this formula for years and it has never let me down!!

My hair really has different texture when it comes to new growth, so i try to be careful while relaxing. But I think I was too happy because my hair was sleek after the relaxer. Although I put some Almond Oil in the oil it felt like my hair was bone straight. – even my sister looked at me like girrrl did you bone straight your hair – I could definitely see and feel a difference between  a lye and a no-lye relaxer. A lye relaxer gives my hair more texture, but a no-lye relaxer is more friendly for me to use. I’m happy that i switch back to the no-lye formula.

What are my  G O A L S
I’m suffering from thin ends – ugh – In this coming cycle I’m going to concentrate on getting my ends even. I also want to relax my hair after 20 weeks. That means that the next relaxer will be in January .

Relaxer | September 7th ‘14

2014.09.07 RELAXER

After 22 weeks post it was finally time to relax my hair. I told myself I wasn’t going to stretch for more than 20 weeks, but hey here I am. Don’t get me wrong I love stretching my hair and see my hair grow. But after a while I couldn’t deal with the thickness :(.

As always I used ORS to relax my hair, but I went back to the no-lye relaxer. I had some difficulties using the lye relaxer. I also I didn’t like the end results when I used the lye relaxer. Yes, with the lye relaxer I achieved more texture, but the relaxing process was a bit difficult for me. But now I’m back the no-lye relaxer and yes I’m happy.

Washday June 9 ‘ 14

IMG_0494_Fotor_FotorNormally Sunday is my washday, but I was free from work so I planned to wash my hair on Monday.

I don’t know why I keep on doing this. I haven’t been faithful to my regimen and my hair is screaming for help.

Step 1  I started the routine with a new shampoo that I bought in February ‘Mizani Moisturfusion Milk Bath’. This shampoo had the same smell as the conditioner. I washed my hair twice in sections. The shampoo has a nice feel on my hair. the texture of the shampoo feels like a light conditioner that you will to co-wash. This month I will be using this shampoo to see if it’s a keeper.

Step 2 After I t-shirt dried my hair – I left the t-shirt on my hair for about 30 minutes– I gently detangled my hair in four sections.  I love my texlaxed hair. Thick – soft – fully hair … YES!! For detangling my hair I always use a shower comb. After that I went on with a protein conditioner. I applied ORS Replenishing Conditioner on my hair. I have been using this conditioner for yeaarrss and it has never let me down!! I was feeling lazy, but I told myself NO be serious – lool sometimes I need to check myself-.  It’s been a will that I did the DIY hair steaming method. – I will do a separate post bout this method-. I deep condition my hair with heat for 30 minutes.

Wash day 25th May ‘14

WASH DAYThat moment that you planned your day for your wash routine anddd then you become lazy -_- What it happened was * lool *. I wanted to do ‘hard’ protein treatment with Aphogee two-step protein treatment, record my search destroy method and do a length check. Eeuhmm well it didn’t go as planned.

Last week I flat ironed my hair for an family occasion that I went to. Euuhmm I did something bad. I flat ironed my hair again, Sunday before I went to church. I’m slacking .. big  time.

Step 1
Before the wash I did a search and destroy method. This is a method to get rid of split ends. So far I’m doing a good job, doing this method monthly J. One of myhair problems is the fact that I have thin ends, so I’m taking baby step to solve it.
