I relaxed my hair last week.
Do you relax your hair yourself ?
Which relaxer do you use?
It's been a while for me so I feel out of touch.
Thank you!I felt like you when I made the decision to start relaxing again. I had not been on this board in years and when I returned, I found more natural heads than relaxed (quite the opposite when I first joined in 2003). Finding this thread was fantastic! To feel plugged in and connected to your relaxed brethren, I suggest going back to page 1 of this thread and going through the links posted. With many relaxed heads stretching for months between relaxers and wearing protective styles, you may not see daily updates and postings.
To answer your question: I self-relax with Creme of Nature's Straight From Eden relaxer in regular.
I'm trying to recall the name of a hair accessory that was popular here awhile back. It was shaped like an 8. I can't find the one I had. Can anyone remember the name?
Yes. I couldn't find my old one so I had to reorder and noticed the new website. I got them last week I've been rocking all this week.
What's a TMS kit?I'm still on the fence about relaxing at 12 vs 24 weeks. I may do it at 12 weeks depending on how this new growth behaves. Right now I'm at 8 weeks post. If I don't relax, I will apply a TMS kit to help me along.
I know I have to stay on top of my new growth not tangling up. So that means I have to stay on top of washing my hair and keeping it loose.
