    Re: Relaxed Heads: How many weeks post relaxer are you and when is your next touch up

    I made an appointment for a touch up in two weeks, Saturday, May 3. I'm debating if I should do an Aphogee two step treatment this weekend. I'm sure that I have read somewhere that it is a good idea, but I don't remember the reason why. I'll be 25 weeks on my appointment day.

    4 weeks post. 9 weeks until my next relaxer. At this point, I am starting to feel my new growth. Bittersweet.

    15 weeks post. I could continue but I'm going to relax over the weekend. After my 40 week stretch/failed transition last year I'm not risking further setbacks due to breakage and split ends.

    Relaxed April 3 after an around 9 month stretch. I used Linange this time and I like it, seems like good stuff.

    I may relax my hair twice a year from now on. I have a lot of damage. I dyed my hair brown (which came out red) last year and then re-dyed to black, all this on top of a relaxer and heat damage.

    No aphogee two step this weekend to prep for next week's relaxer. My water heater is broken, and the new part wont get in until Tuesday at the earliest. I refuse to wash my hair with ice cold water.

    Re: Relaxed Heads: How many weeks post relaxer are you and when is your next touch up

    I decided that I had to wash my hair today regardless. Lots of pots of hot water since the water heater won't be fixed before Tuesday. I wanted to do the Aphogee two step before next weeks relaxer.

    Major tangling problems. Not SSKs, but multi hair knot all over! Nothing would help. I ended up flat ironing some of the knots because I couldn't get rid of them! Absolutely horrible experience.

    After I rinsed out the Aphogee , I decided to spending ten minutes under the dryer with my fenugreek oil and honey. I immediately realized that my hair was too knotted to comb. I decided to wait until I put the conditioner on before trying again. I put on a ton of ORS replenishing conditioner, and still couldn't detangle my hair, so I decided to sit under the dryer for a half hour. At the end of that time , I still couldn't comb my hair.

    I finally rinsed and put some Chi in. Chi has been a lifesaver for me when it comes to detangling, but not today. Nothing worked. I blow dried and flat ironed my hair with knots.

    Once my hair was flat ironed, I was able to work out the rest of the knots, but this was a terrible experience.

    So glad relaxer is next Saturday.

    Re: Relaxed Heads: How many weeks post relaxer are you and when is your next touch up

    I'm 5 weeks in & I have 9 more weeks to go. My hair laziness has really set in. I have no desire to do anything to my hair.

    In the midst of writing this, I decided to at least stop & pre-poo with EVCO, WGO & GSO. This will probably be in my hair until tomorrow afternoon.

    nakialovesshoes - I'm beginning to think hair laziness is a disease. :look:

    I had to force myself to dc tonight. Didn't feel like it. Now I have it in, but don't feel like rinsing....

    Re: Relaxed Heads: How many weeks post relaxer are you and when is your next touch up

    sunnieb - Yeah, this prepoo is still in my hair. My girlfriend & her hubby came over earlier. DH said he couldn't believe I entertained them with my plastic cap on my head. I was like - WHATEVER. We're friends, not strangers. Plus, this isn't the 1st time they've seen me with a plastic cap on. I'm out of Silken Seal & I have to drive about 30 minutes to get some. My goal is to be there when the mall opens tomorrow & then I'm going to go back home & rollerset. Yeah, that's the goal!

    @divachyk Me too! I just visited your blog and saw that you got a trim. Guess what? I got a trim this weekend too! I was tired of the see through ends. I really need to stay on top of my trimming. Health over length!
