    Re: Relaxed Heads: How many weeks post relaxer are you and when is your next touch up

    How many weeks post relaxer are you right now? 4 weeks post

    When is your next touch up? Some time in December around 16-18 weeks post

    What relaxer will you use? If I self-relax ORS Lye- Normal. If I go to a salon that was suggested to me by a few people, I would have to use theirs which is a Paul Mitchell Relaxer


    Are you going to a salon or will you self-relax? Haven't decided yet. Last time I self-relaxed, I was left under-processed...but in some sections I have straight roots then underprocessed in the middle.....so I'm leaning on going to a salon

    How many weeks post relaxer are you right now? 7 weeks post

    When is your next touch up? ??? Haven't decided, I have lots of new growth at my crown and in front but less growth in the back. Also I have areas of multiple textures, in short hair like __^^^^^^^_____. Straight-ish roots, underprocessed middle and bone straight ends :perplexed.

    I'm still dealing with breakage and thinness from stretching my hair so I'm trying to make sure I relax by 12 weeks max

    Are you going to a salon or will you self-relax? Self Relax

    Re: Relaxed Heads: How many weeks post relaxer are you and when is your next touch up

    How many weeks post relaxer are you right now? 9

    When is your next touch up? Soon

    What relaxer will you use? Silk Elements Regular Strength

    Are you going to a salon or will you self-relax? I think I might be brave enough to try self-relaxing for the first time :yep:

    I have a question that hopefully someone can answer. I had cornrows in my hair for a little under a month and I just took them down four days ago. My last two relaxers were more like a texlax than a relaxer so I would like to relax soon. I did a protein and moisture DC today and my hair feels pretty good. How long do you think I should wait until relaxing again?

    Re: Relaxed Heads: How many weeks post relaxer are you and when is your next touch up

    How many weeks post relaxer are you right now?
    16

    When is your next touch up?
    January 2nd, 2012, or at least that's my plan. I don't know if I can stand a 30 week stretch.

    What relaxer will you use?
    ORS no-lye, regular strength. I may go back to Optimum, though. I used to use that as a teen and I feel it got my hair straighter, and it didn't change my hair color.

    Are you going to a salon or will you self-relax?
    Self. Well, technically my sister's doing it, but same thing, I guess.


    Just to be on the safe side, I always wait 2-3 days after a wash before getting a relaxer. It gives the pores of the scalp ample time to close, so you reduce the risk of getting any burns.

    I relaxed on August 28th I believe. The date is in my siggy.

    I'm 4 weeks post!

    I recently switched from Phyto to Cream of Nature Argan Oil.

    I usually self-relax, so I'll probably do that around Thanksgiving. I'm not sure which relaxer I'll use.
