    11 weeks post on Saturday.

    @lalla , you're on to something, sis. I may either install a lazy girl crochet style or jumbo/chunky twists in the next two weeks.

    25 weeks post tomorrow. YIKES. Hair salons in England don't open until Saturday. The woman I go to does hair from her house and I'm sure I can get in next week, but I want a KeraStraight, so I'll have to go back to my old salon (that I haven't been to in 2.5 years) to get one. I bet they have ZERO openings forever.

    I lost count :laugh:.
    But I'm more than 12 weeks post and less than 15 ( I think).
    I keep braiding and forgetting about it.

    I got my Kerastraight in for next Monday (the salon opens on Saturday). My relaxer is tentatively booked in for 27th July because you have to wait a few weeks after getting a relaxer before getting a kerastraight.

    On the news this man was like "My salon is filled for the next five weeks."

    Next is getting my eyebrows and possibly nails. Maybe I can just camp out in front of the eyebrow place. :drunk:

    How have you upped your moisture? Internally or externally? I need help with both. I'm trying to make myself drink 8oz of water at the top of the hour, but I'm not consistent. And I'm 11 weeks post and my ng is dry.

    I have lost count too

    I think my last relaxer was in January. I did Marley braids last Saturday and will either put more in when I take these down orrrrrr try my hand at a touch up myself. I’m not going to my stylist in 2020.

    I’m 20+ weeks post. The max I’ll take it to is 24 week’s although I could probably go longer I think; we’ll see. I’m managing the NG okay but whooo - I HAVE to keep in touch with that moisture just to keep it soft and manageable and some days I have been lazy. The nice thing is being at home, I can just plait it up and just throw it into my silk cap throughout the day and just leave it.

    The lack of manipulating my hair the last few months has been great.

    Now 30 weeks post with a KeraStraight. I get touchups around the 12 week mark but missed out because they closed all the salons in the UK in mid-March.

    My relaxer appointment is booked for the end of this month/beginning of next month because hair has to have time inbetween treatments. I'm curious to see what this looks like after I wash it - how loose the texture will be, I mean.

    Thank you! It turned out a little different than last time texture wise but I'm pleased so far.
