    Re: Relaxed Hair THREAD!!

    If my relaxed hair is highly porous, then color should do it some good right?

    Fill in the gaps with some color deposits?

    Re: Relaxed Hair THREAD!!

    Hi ladies. I figured I would bump our thread with this:

    Talking about colored hair, I bought a bottle of Suave Professionals Black Raspberry and White Tea conditioner (color care) for cowashes simply because it smells SOOOOOO good. I'll be cowashing later today even though I just washed my hair :giggle: Has anybody tried this? There's supposed to be a leave-in that goes with it.

    BTW my hair isn't colored but I could not walk away from that fragrance.

    Hey relaxers! How's everyone doing?!

    GraceV

    I love walking down the the aisles and smelling the Suave conditioners :lol: Unfortuantely, every Suave conditioner that I have tried tangles my hair horribly so I gave them up. I guess it's back to Walmart to smell the Black Raspberry and White Tea conditioner you suggested :lachen:

    Hey y'all!

    So glad I can come here and talk. I'm thinking about going back to monthly henna treatments. My hair was so much thicker then. Here's my hair in November after 6 months of monthly henna treatments. I used reshma henna and added oils and sometimes yogurt to it

    [​IMG]

    I have layers but even my bottom longest layer is thick enough to compensate

    I will bite the bullet and henna this weekend. HHG!

    Re: Relaxed Hair THREAD!!

    chasturner84 Be careful girl. If you like really sweet smelling conditioners, this might trap you or at least reinforce your sniffing habit :). The good thing is, it only leaves a faint scent on the hair when it is rinsed out. Too much of a good thing isn't always good, and if the fragrance stayed strong on my hair I'd be walking around with a headache.

    I have yet to see the leave in's. Are they brand new?

    Btw, I use Garnier Fructis leave in for color treated hair and it works excellently for me. I'm not color treated either :yep:

    Re: Relaxed Hair THREAD!!

    I think it's new. I didn't think to look for it in the store. It was on their website though. I'll check for it the next time I go shopping. So far the only review I saw on it (Amazon) wasn't great.

    I have to have my henna, not only does it make my hair thicker it's the only thing that covers my gray well without thinning my hair. I am more than 75% gray and way too young in my opinion to just let it all hang out.

    Re: Relaxed Hair THREAD!!

    Hi ladies

    I am relaxed.. I have not been on the boards for a while.. I was APL headed to BSL decided I was overprocessed went to the salon for my relaxer and poof!! stylist cut me back to SL when all I asked for was a trim but for some reason she felt the need to even my entire head, which will grow back uneven anyways becuase thats just what it DOES! .. needless to say i've been depressed, so i have stayed away from the boards:( but its growing back and i will doing my own hair fr now on. Stylist are way too risky! I am currently 8 weeks post and will relax again between 10 and 12 weeks.

    Re: Relaxed Hair THREAD!!

    Hello ladies, relax and happy. I am curretly 1 inch from BSL again I have been getting it cut to be between APL and BSL, I like it that way. We have recently just moved to the Augusta area and I was worried I wouldn't find a stylist and I have been blessed by God it took me only 4 weeks and she was the second stylist I tried. Even my baby girl loves her.

    I have been gone for a while and will be in and out. I have my head deep in the books for graduate school.

    Re: Relaxed Hair THREAD!!

    Soooo...... I finally had some success with airdrying!!!:yay:

    I did a prepoo with jojoba oil, cowashed with mane n tail replenishing conditioner and he ltr conditioner, put in a little he ltr leave in and mizani h20 nighttime treatment and sealed my ends with jbco, and then followed sunnieb's method of airdrying - result, soft, straight airdryed hair with no frizzy ends!!!

    I know its not really that exciting, but I've been trying various products/methods recently in my pursuit of the best regimen for my hair, and this is one of the first times I've been really impressed with my results :yep:

    sunnieb - thank you so much for sharing your airdrying regimen!

    Hi Ladies,

    Are there any hair color products on the market that we relaxed ladies can use that won't damage our hair?

    IMO the only color that will damage relaxed hair is bleach or something that will take you faaarrr away lighter from your natural hair color.

    Re: Relaxed Hair THREAD!!

    camilla - used kim's LI a good bit of last year. The comb didn't glide right through my hair. I have low porosity and avj doesn't work so well with my hair. Think that's why kim's LI didn't work miracles for my hair.

    Re: Relaxed Hair THREAD!!

    I'm back to using henna. I have it in overnight right now. I hennaed May to December last year and did not have to trim at all. This year I've trimmed 3 times already.

    So I will try biweekly henna treatments. My mix includes letting the color release for 8 hours with henna, water and grape seed oil. Then before I apply I added Greek yogurt that I had that was expired. I had leftover henna mix, so I froze it. I used reshma henna but will look for nupur on tomorrow.

    Henna was the one thing I stopped doing in 2011 and you can see the difference in progress in my siggy. Can't wait til December, I'm doing the most for growth, retention and thickness!

    Re: Relaxed Hair THREAD!!

    Thanks for reminding me I'm due for my henna treatment. I try to remember to do it monthly. I've been forgetting about it majority of this year :lachen: but I can't laugh too hard because my hair has been suffering because of it.

    I never tried grape seed oil before. Where do you get grape seed oil and what benefits have you noticed from using it?

    Re: Relaxed Hair THREAD!!

    Hello there! I was lurking in the ceramides thread and saw grape seed oil as one. I thought my ends were thin but they had no splits so I was ready to snip off 3 inches! So I gave Grape seed oil a try to help with ceramides loss and I used colorful neutral protein filler ( a capful) in my DCs for protein loss. Results were amazing. But henna will trump it all I know. Just waiting for my December reveal. HHG! Oh I bought it from walmart but whole foods has it too
