Lol, I'm in extensions too. And I'm loving the lazy hair so it'll be a while before I relax again
13 weeks post and 4 more to go.
4 days post and I’ll probably relax in April or May.
11 weeks post, relaxing tomorrow
I might need to just braid my hair and " rest" from it for a bit. Coz at this rate .
Yes please, ma'am. Thank you.
My guy suggested I do this too. And I have all these wigs I'm not putting to use. Ok, I will wait and see how I feel by the summer
I think Im about 13 weeks post, trying to get to 26
I'm 22 weeks post not sure when I'll touch-up.. Although I'm neck length in the back and ear length on the sides, so far so good... If my hair continue being good, I'll go longer ..
15 weeks post and 2 more to go. The struggle is so real right now.
You can do it, sis! Lol
8 weeks post today and relaxing this weekend.
Gotta go to Sally's and get a few supplies.
16 weeks post and one ore to go. Relaxing on Friday.
30 minutes post and relaxing in 8 weeks.
12 weeks post. Not yet sure when I'll relax. It's Feb now, so maybe sometime in May. Both DH and I have big birthdays in May this year and our wedding anniversary is also in May.
I’m about 3 weeks this time, and I’m really looking into thermal reconditioning. I might stretch a year. This means me having to actually leave my hair alone minus the washing and deep conditioning
Does anyone get this done?
I've never had a thermal reconditioning but isn't that what Zoe Saldana is rumored to have? If so, it looks really straight! GL if you decide to do it!
I've thought about using BKT or something similar to stretch my relaxers for a year but I can't get past the formaldehyde. Even the formaldehyde free ones don't seem too safe.
So I've decided to just rock crochet braids (Lazy Girl technique only) to hide my hair and stretch my relaxer. I figure if I do a new style a month, the time will go by before I know it. Lol
@ItsMeLilLucky I'm thinking of doing a one year stretch next year. I'm researching flat irons right now.
Also, I think I printed tips from Sylver2 way back when she documented her stretch.
That sounds a little drastic for you. Aren't you more of an 8 to 12 weeker? Are you still having issues with your nape?
It is, but if you want the service done, you need 5-6 inches of virgin hair so it doesn’t overlap on the relaxed hair. My nape got itself together a while back lol. I’m undecided as of yet, but if I do get it I’ll probably start stretching next year. That means I’ll have to get used to not switching my styles so often.
Oh, Ok. I see..lol
I missed the thermal reconditioning part.
I will! I'll tag you in Relaxed Hair Thread if I find it.
I know! We'll see how it goes. After 2 years of babying and treating my hair like fine silk, its just not where it should be.
My nape is ok. The rest of my head is going through "thangs" now. I don't have anything to lose at this point.
Who knows? This Relaxer Queen might become a Heat Straightened Natural for a bit. I'm open to anything.
I just got a touch up 2 weeks ago at 10weeks. I think I might stretch 12 weeks this time
16.5 weeks post and 2 more days to go.
I think I might stop stretching at 13 weeks. I don’t think I’m prepared to go longer than that just yet.
Tomorrow (2/16) I'll be 26 weeks post relaxer. Currently I'm in knotless braids so it's not bad..
3 weeks post. Relaxing in 5 weeks or so.
