    Ladies if you haven't tried pincurls (especially those that you roll then turn and pin flat against your head)....you don't know what you're missing:yep: I'm just saying.....

    sarathu - I've never used megatek, so I'm not sure. I know I prefer using a protein conditioner.

    Re: Relaxed Hair THREAD!!

    Hi ladies, as you can see I'm more of a lurker :perplexed However, today I decided to share by results from using curlformers. I love these things. I've been trying to find a way to use less heat and this will definitely become a part of my regimen. Hope you enjoy :grin:

    Re: Relaxed Hair THREAD!!

    I'm going to have to try this. My hair needs a good moisturizer.
    I just re-bought some Cantu Shea Butter leave-in. I love it for when I roll my hair nightly on flexi rods.

    Re: Relaxed Hair THREAD!!

    Nix08 - I pin curl every night when I roller set and desire to retain the curly look. You're pin curling nightly these days?

    Your Cheeziness - I was just at Walmart, dang. I will check next time I'm there. My Walmart sucks but hopefully they carry it. Is this product found in the hair care section? Is it in the Ethnic section?

    Re: Relaxed Hair THREAD!!

    Well, I'll be textlaxing the first week of September. I really love my hair but I'm pretty sick of the single and double strand knots. :ohwell: I'll be going with phyto I instead of II though the first go round will be with II since thats what I have on hand currently.

    Re: Relaxed Hair THREAD!!

    divachyk I was on a mini mission to figure out how I could co wash as often as I like and have a style other than a bun when I go to work. So the last 2 nights I've co washed then as I sat watching a little Tell-lie-vision I pincurled (about 10 in total) and voila the next morning I'm giddy, checking out every mirror I pass:look: I'm putting it up tomorrow though...I'm a little too extra with my hair like this...chatting up random people and stuff:drunk: I'm going to be impossible when my hair gets longer geez:rolleyes:

    Arcadian are you natural now? If so, welcome:yep:

    Re: Relaxed Hair THREAD!!

    Nix08 I am.:yep: I was cutting back in March my hair and :look:and well...you know how it sometimes goes.

    I had been on a really long stretch so I had to either go ahead and relax or just get rid of them.


    My hair has been ridiculously easy to care for which I really like...except the knotting issue. Can't win them all!

    Re: Relaxed Hair THREAD!!

    Hi Relaxed Ladies,

    I am 17 weeks post and plan to relax Sunday. I really wanted to stretch another 7-8 weeks but I'm losing too much hair from tangles and matting. I luv my new growth and hate to see it go but I am also ready to see my relaxed hair again too :)

    LADIES!!! I'm feeling like idk. I feel good. I got a compliment on my hair today and I feel amazing. I've been massaging my scalp with castor oil and getting my hair wet through cowashing, DCing, or just water spritzes. My hair is growing! Today I had a braidout and a lady at ulta told me how much she loved it. She thought I was natural. Which is the look I was going for lol. I loved it. We shared some info and she said she would mention me in her blog! Of course I mentioned LHCF and told her how much I love you guys. I'm happy :)

    sarathu - I've used Motions CPR since before I found LHCF. It's worked great for me. It's a light protein though.

    shonte your hair looks great!

    I hear you on those mats. My hair matted in ways I didn't think was possible towards the end of my 15 week stretch. Like Nix said make sure you post pics! :)

    Re: Relaxed Hair THREAD!!

    What color will you use? I really want to color too, but i'm weary of being double processed :nono:

    Part of me wants to color now and wait it out on this relaxer until October or so...still doing some soul searching on this one. Hell, i'm still torn between chocolate or red :lol:

    I had to end my stretch because it was doing more harm then good. But i must say i missed the look of freshly relaxed hair. Today i put it in my first ever set of two strand flat twists in the front, with a sputhern tease bun in the back inspired by Mrs. TheBronx. Thanks a whole lot for the tips ladies! I'll post pics when I go to lunch!
