    How many weeks post relaxer are you right now? 10 weeks 6 days

    When is your next touch up? Who knows maybe in August for school, well thats the plan at least. Or maybe in 5 weeks it depends on how my hair is acting.

    What relaxer will you use? Going back to old trusty Design Essential

    Are you going to a salon or will you self-relax? Back to the salon

    I relaxed Tuesday at 13 wks post. I ended my 20-24 post goal...too much stress on my relaxed hair.

    I will stick with the 13-15 wk post mark.

    I'm currently 3 days post relaxer :grin:!

    You and me both PinkPebbles. I cannot do the 20 + weeks post anymore. My hair even though texlaxed, still suffers from demarcation breakage. This is my third time around and I am NOT having that:nono:.

    I am currently 2 weeks and 5 days post and will be stretching for about 14 weeks.

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

    I am 13 weeks post and I will be relaxing in a little over 1 week. I normally relax at 12 weeks, but have been sick and on antibiotics from a sinus infection. I stopped all medication on Sunday.

    I am paranoid about relaxing while having medication in my system. I think a week should be enough time for me to relax safely.

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

    3.5 weeks post and will be texlaxing even straighter than the last one next round in about 2.5 more weeks.

    I will not stretch too long this time around but I intend to stretch for the next round to about 11-12 weeks.

    I don't think I will be stretching longer than this for a while but I will definitely be playing it by air.

    @Divachyk and Nix08 Yes, I'm with you ladies. I think my calendar has our week to relax around June 30th.

    I'm mad at myself for trimming my hair so much lately but it will grow back:(

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

    I'm 0 days post. :lol: I just relaxed at 10 weeks post, early for me, but quite underprocessed from last time, so it seemed like double the new growth. I had to knock it out.

    divachyk It feels better. My problem now is I can't keep my hands out of it. I probably need to trim a little more off b/c I feel it snagging but I'm staying away from the scissors until next month

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

    17weeks and some days. Will be 18 weeks on Friday.


    I guess I'm pushing it to 20 weeks since I'm being lazy. Looks like this may be a 2 relaxer year for me (I haven't relaxed at all this year so far....).

    I dont know because I am very underprocessed. All I do know is that Im going to attack my hair with a blowdryer and flat iron tomorrow. I tried with the bantu knots and such but my NG wont let any styles be great.

    divachyk

    It went well. Much less wavy hair this time. :lol: I used Silk Elements (I used Elasta last time) which you really have to work with to get the hair straight, but it does give you time to work.

    I relaxed on Tuesday so as of today I am 5 days post... It feels weird not to have a mountain of new growth on my head but I considering as a starting over point to learn from any mistakes I may have made in my first stretch ever (48 months) I plan to relax at 15 weeks

    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? 3 days shy of 7 weeks

    When is your next touch up? 10 weeks post

    What relaxer will you use? Not sure...but I need to find out what my Stylist has been using?

    Are you going to a salon or will you self-relax? To a salon but I admire the whole "do it yourself and taking charge of your hair!"

    I will be asking my Stylist to texlax my hair.
