I relaxed two days ago. I will detail my process here as I think it might help someone. I use the Affirm system + Olaplex. I relax for 15 minutes with Affirm, 20 minutes for Affirm + Olaplex. I don't get bone straight hair, I keep some texture and a lot of volume and that's the way I like it. I split my hair into 5 parts, 3 in the front and two in the back. I did aroun 12 to 15 loose twists per section. Afterwards, I applied protecto on my hair and vaseline on my face, neck and ears. I mixed 3/16 of olaplex 1 into the relaxer (around 200g). It took my sister and I 3 minutes to apply the relaxer. I combed it through and let it sit until it was time to rinse. I rinsed very well then applied Olaplex 2 and the 5 in 1 reconstructor. I let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes then rinsed and shampooed with the neutralizing shampoo. It's important to let it sit and to make sure there is no pink. If your hair smells like relaxer you haven't rinsed it well enough. I then conditioned with Joico moisturizing conditioner. My hair feels great. I gave myself a trim.
