Relaxer Update - 24.05.13 12 Weeks Post

Late post

Friday 24th May 2013

As I mentioned in my Hair Update post (01.06.13), I managed to get to 12 weeks post but it was definitely a struggle. My friend V came round on Friday evening for a girly hair night, she relaxed my hair and I helped her take out her box braids.

I bought ORS kids no-lye olive oil relaxer,as my hair comes out perfectly straight every time I've used it before. I then applied both the scalp and hair protector on my scalp and on the length of my hair excluding the regrowth.

    Once my friend had applied the relaxer and it had been in for the adequate time, I rinsed my hair thoroughly before neutralizing my hair with the shampoo provided three times before using ORS Creamy Aloe shampoo for the final wash to ensure all relaxer had been washed out of my hair. 

    I followed up with a 45 min deep conditioning treatment using ORS Replenishing Conditioner and the ORS kids conditioner provided mixed with Avocado oil, EVOO & Grapeseed oil.

    After rinsing out my deep conditioner, I left my hair to t-shirt dry for 30 minutes to absorb excess water.

      I then applied my leave ins which was Cantu Shea Butter Leave In and S-Curl and then finger detangled my hair before air-drying using the scarf method.

      Once my hair was 90% dry, I then moisturized and sealed with Olive Oil & Mango Butter moisturiser and Avocado Oil.

      After my recent setback, my hair is back to just past armpit length.
