Relaxer Update Time - 2 Year HHJ Anniversary

I have been gone from the blogosphere for quite a while due to my move from Japan back to Jamaica. I think I am fairly settled now and can pick up where I left off, so I'll do just that. Thanks for bearing with me!

relaxer update 04/'14


So four days after relaxing, I rewashed and styled my hair.

I started off by prepooing/ deep conditioning with a mix of Aubrey's Honeysuckle rose, Queen Helene cholesterol cream, and my oil mix. This sat for about an hour. 

Then I shampooed with ORS creamy aloe and conditioned with HEHH and a bit of Tresseme moisture rich.

I T-shirt dried for 15 minutes, then applied my heat protectant - Nioxin Thermal Bliss and proceeded to blow-dry.

After that, I applied more heat protectant in the form of ORS Thermal protect and shine and the flat-ironing got underway. 





Update

Oh by the way, I forgot to mention that on the day I washed and flat-ironed I was just a day shy of the 2 year mark for my HHJ. I know you love pics (as do I) so let's get to them.

April '14


Pardon the quality of the Dec '13 pic, I was unable to find one and had to doctor this one for the post.

I skipped the follow-up protein treatment this wash day and my hair felt better for it. Also a trim is in order soon.

So there it is, my hair as at April, 2014. I'm happy with the progress so far, but so much further to go. 


Update **Since these pictures were taken I had my mom give me a trim while she was roller-setting my hair**


Thanks for reading. Have a good one!
