I am wearing a upart kinky straight wig now.
I just bought one the other day from Ammyzon I haven’t worn it yet though
I’m five weeks post but I feel like 8 weeks post.
You grow new growth! Although I wish I could have enjoyed my straight hair a little longer before it started reverting
I'm 5 weeks post.
Plan to relax anywhere from 12 to 20 weeks post.
9 weeks post, 3 more weeks to go
But to be fair it was an accident. I've been in braids and twists for about 5 months and didn't see the point of relaxing.
Sometimes it be like that lol.
2.5 days post!!!
I get an error message everytime I try to upload pictures.
4 weeks post and 4 to go.
2 days post
I’ve heard resizing apps work for people here. I made a thread a while back too. https://longhaircareforum.com/threads/wanna-post-a-hair-pic-i-gotchu-boo.841225/#post-25047727
I have new growth, I just can’t tell how much I have lol. Somewhere between .5 to maybe an inch, inch and a half? Things are kinda smooth by the roots, but the shrinkage is confusing me
I'm at 8 weeks post. I think I'm relaxing before the week is over.
Planned on making it 12 weeks but I don't think I'll make it.
I am 15 weeks post as of today.
I havent decided when Im going to relax again. Maybe at 28 weeks
Ok do not laugh at me lol but I use the Ors Children's Relaxer only because I do my own at home and I have sensitive scalp. I touch up every 4-6 months. It has been 9 weeks since my last touch up. Always wondered which is best-getting your touch up every 8-10 weeks OR waiting?? I am sure it is different for everyone.
Cool to see someone uses the brand I do.
OMG! You used the Phyto relaxer. Sweet! Is there a major difference between the Phyto and other brands? Just curious because it is expensive and I always wondered if it was worth it. I do use the Phyto shampoo, conditioner, and co wash. I just used the Cream of Nature Plex 3 part system last night in my hair with their Argan Oil leave in spray.
In 2 days I'll be 19 weeks post.
Still rocking mini braid/twists. Hoping to make it to December. I can't believe it's already November. Having my easy hair back has made the days fly by.
Excited to straighten my hair in Dec and do a length check. I think once a year checks are the way to go. It's also the only time I flat iron.
Well your hair looks nice!
Wow! I had no idea that you could do half and half on a relaxer. You have skill!
Currently 3 weeks post. Gave myself the shock of a lifetime because i relaxed my hair before any type of washing that included a decent amount of detangling. The shed hair that came out was about a week's worth, and i thought my hair was falling out. Lesson definitely learned.
No idea when im gonna relax again. Maybe after 7-8 weeks. Since its getting colder I try to cut down on stretching as my new growth gets a bit unruly during the winter months.
Will be using ORS no-lye as usual. and self relaxing as usual
I am asking because I am looking at your hair in this photo, do you find that stretching your relaxers help with growth? I was always told that and one of the reasons I wait so long. Even though I may feel like I need one sooner. I use ORS too lol. I am scary when it comes to change with a relaxer.
Do you mean my avatar?
And its really up to the individual on how well they can manipulate their hair (roots especially), without causing any issues, mostly breakage. Depending on the time of year, products, and whatever technique i am using i can stretch for longer periods.
If i find that my new growth isnt digging the long stretches ill relax sooner.
Hi @Holly007 !
So great when we get new poster here!
She may not get to see your question so when you want to talk to someone directly you can just "@" them. Or you can also hit the "reply" button right under her post. That way, she'll get a notification and know that you're asking her. HTH!!
Thank you very much. I am trying to learn how to navigate and work at the same time LOL. I spend more time reading tips than anything. Helps more than I thought.
I am sorry lol. I didn't realize it was your Avatar. I need a pic to show my hair. That may help when I have questions. I can't wait to master 1 technique. I will be thinking I am doing something then [email protected][QUOTE="PlanetCybertron.
Its all good. You can use it for reference since i try to update my avatar monthly anyways. Haven't updated this latest one in about 2 months, but ehh its whatever.
If you're gonna pick 1 technique, for starters, I'd say you would be off to a good start looking through the length retention thread to get some good info
Here's a link:
Ok I will definitely check that out. I have been trying to learn how to roller set my hair to be honest. Simple and easy. I have every type of roller you can think of seriously but lack that skill lol. I even have the professional dryer and chair in my house. Both dusty at this point. I have no shortage of products and/or equipment. I was told by a friend years ago to join a blog of some sort but ol' skool here did not want to LOL
