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!
Wash day Saturday 20 January!
18 weeks post relaxer
In the morning I went to gym. So when I came home I wasn’t feeling to do a pre-poo, but jumped right in the shower and wash my hair.
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.

STEP 1 | PRE-POO
Being consists is still a struggle, when it comes to moisturizing my hair during the week. That’s why I started my routine with a pre-poo treatment, using Garnier Whole Blends (Loving Blends) Repairing Conditioner. I’m starting to like this conditioner -for pre-poo only-. I pre-pooed for 30 minutes, without heat. As a result my hair was moist and tangled free.
STEP 1 | PRE-POO
Starting my wash routine with a pre-poo. For the last couple of weeks I have used Garnier Whole Blends (Loving Blends) Repairing Conditioner. In sections of four, I applied the product to my hair and after 25 minutes of pre-pooing, I rinsed the product out. I try to pre-poo my every time before washing. For now, I like this product for pre-pooing.
Since my relaxer I haven’t done a protein treatment – what am I thinking – for this routine I planned to do a ‘hard’ protein treatment … but I got lazy and switched my routine. Next week doing a protein treatment is a must!!!
Search and Destroy Method: while I was detangling my hair I notice some split ends – say no to split ends –. So I decided to do a search and destroy method.
For the wash I used Mizani Moisturfusion Milk Bath Shampoo. The love for this shampoo is too much!! In sections of four I shampooed my hair, twice. After the wash I wrapped my hair with a t-shirt to towel dry.
