Thank you! A girl.
@Sosoothing you just kinda slid that news in there!
Texturized on May 1st - I believe my stylist used Affirm Mild and mixed Olaplex in there.
I retouched my hair today after 17weeks. I had a chance and took it while DH watched the kids.
With water running through it, a good amount of my hair reaches my waist. I'm happy with my progress.
Ooooh! OK, sis! Sounds lovely.
Waitin’ on da pix.
33 weeks post this weekend and 45 more to go.
2 weeks post.
I'll relax at around 10-12 weeks.
10 weeks post. I'll touch up between 12-14 weeks.
2 weeks post. 15 more to go.
3 weeks post. Since I didn't relax bone straight, I see crinkly new growth already.
Just today relaxed at 12 weeks post. I do like the Affirm relaxer and the whole system.
I have one pot left I so I have to remember to repurchase.
4 weeks post. Will relax again when I feel like it.
35 weeks post tomorrow. A ton more to go
I don’t know how you do it, I barely made 5 months before I chopped it off. It was supposed to be a big chop, but it turned into a big shave
at the bolded. Sometimes I feel like doing that too but I don't think I'll be cute with it so I refrain from making such a harsh decision.
I think I'll be relaxing next week. I'm A LOT of weeks post (maybe 20) but my hair has been growing slowly due to iron deficiency. Before I had iron problems I was every 10 weeks.
I'm 9 weeks post and my hair already acting up. I was planning to relax at 12 weeks but iono. Ive hit the time period where my new growth starts causing me to lose hair when I wash. I washed and DC, then blow dried on Friday and my scalp was sore.
Wow, I'm already 7 weeks post! Seems like the time is flying by. I've pretty much been in twisted braids (or braided twists, hmm) the since my last relaxer. No detangling to worry about until I refresh the style. I've only had to refresh once and it was finger detangling only. Almost due for another refresh. I'm hoping this lack of manipulation will get me back on the right track.
My next relaxer is scheduled for the end of this month, at 12 weeks. I'm actually considering skipping this relaxer and reassessing in 3 more months. I think I'm going to install back to back extensions for the summer. I got some new vitamins that are on par with Nature's Bounty HSN vitamins I took for a while. I think it took my growth into overdrive and PSing helped me retain.
I've given myself permission to relax anytime after 8 weeks post. I'm not fighting with my hair anymore. I have so many areas that are short and growing in. As soon as those areas start acting up, I'm relaxing.
I'll be 36 weeks post this weekend. My roots are coming in pretty fiercely but I'm tugging it out until the end.
5 weeks post today.
My hair is growing in, but short new growth gets unruly faster when there's no BSL relaxed hair attached to it.
Like I said, I'll go at least 8 weeks before relaxing again.
Think I need to be at least full SL before I can get back to my normal 12-14 week stretches.
7 weeks post & My newgrowth is horrible! Thinking about protective styling until Mid July. I've trimmed my long layers off so my hair is now even, My hair is still soft for now. I moisturize and oil daily into a ponytail.
Relaxing tomorrow. I hate how thin my hair has become, so I'm working on having more iron and getting it back to what it was before.
Lol! What happened?
Back from the salon. I had a trim -- my hair is thin at the back near my neck, so my hair dresser made it less see through. It's still strong at the crown and is OK at the front.
I guess I'm still around APL (I have been since I had a setback in 2014) at the moment.
Relaxed this morning with ORS olive oil (normal strength) after seven weeks.
I burned as usual even though I based my scalp with Motions
I’m more weeks post than I was last time
My hair dresser uses ORS and I'm slightly underprocessed (on purpose) and I still burn with ORS.
I don't know why I do so much with ORS compared to other relaxers.
