OK I took out my crochet braids because I washed them and my roots got all matted. Also some of my edges went AWOL lol. I may revisit crochet braids but get loose hair vs pre braided/twisted hair.
I botoxed my hair out of frustration. I was disappointed with how my hair looked after taking out my braids. I dont know if it was just the short length or the texture. I decided to loosen the curl to see if I like my hair better looser when short.
I used Nutree Bottoxx Expert. I washed my hair 3 times and towel dried. Then I applied the product lightly, blowdried and flat ironed with two passes at 400 degrees. I did only one pass on my looser areas. I also tried to pass a few times at the root since I have new growth.
Here are pictures:
Here is my hair wet with product right before putting in the botox. You can really see how much my hair reverted from my last treatment.

Here is my hair wet with product. As you can see the application loosened my curl alot. My roots have more texture than my ends though.

Here is my hair after drying with mousse. My hair went from a 3c/4a texture to a solid 3c texture.

So far I like the way my hair looks but I actually want it to be just a little looser. I will do the whole strand one more time before I just start touching up the roots. Here are some things I learned about using the Nutree botox:
The more product left on the strands before blow drying and flat ironing the looser the results
No more than 2 passes of the flat iron at 400 is needed for results.
Use gloves when applying!
The hair does not have to be flat ironed pin straight to get results.
I'm thinking of doing the roots every 2-4 months. I wish I used Nutree first instead of the Fox Cosmeticos brand. I will probably use the fox cosmeticos brand as a deep conditioner and use Nutree botox to loosen my curl from now on.
It took like like 3 months to revert fully. I also wash frequently. Idk about my results any more though. I feel like I am chasing a fantasy. A part of me wants to give up and just deal with my natural texture or just get a relaxer.How long does it take to wear off for you? Are you expecting to have an obvious line of demarcation, to be able to do touch ups only?

Idk I think my hair looks ugly but that could be some internalized texturism I have.What are you still unhappy/struggling with?
I’m going to order some of the Nutree Botox tonight. I just to try to wear my hair straight for 2 weeks at a time without it reverting.
