Update | Almost 24 months post relaxer!
So I am now almost 24 months post relaxer (only 3 days to go, I think).
What have I been doing with myself....and my hair?
Well, firstly, I'll admit I have kept it VERY SIMPLE indeed. No more crazy co-washing 5 times a week or detangling weekly for me. I only take down a small section of twists at a time and I don't think I've tackled my whole head in one styling session in a while. Shock, horror!
That is what work and revision does to me.
Of course, I still gave my hair time for pampering with a flat twisting session here and a cornrowing session there! My flat twists are still not quite there but hey, I'll live with them.
What have I learnt?
Products I use and love:
Simple: twists (chunky or medium-sized) in a bun!
Moisturize with spray twice daily. Seal with oil at night and scarf+bonnet combo to bed.
Protein Deep condition overnight every 2-4 weeks. Co-wash weekly. Detangle monthly. Re-fresh style weekly.
And by the way, I am almost Hip Length in my longest layers! Youtube video coming soon!
Stay tuned and thanks for checking in!
