New goals

I don't think my hair likes the Mane and Tail. I need my Loreal it made my hair so silky. I'm shedding so much. I have to figure out a good remedy. I am going to do a lot of protective styles for a few weeks. I'm upping the castor oiling to twice a week. I will be moisturizing and sealing every night. I did not do the black tea rinse but I will next wash for sure! I have to get my shedding under control. Who wants long thin hair? Nobody!

1 week post wash

I'm currently dry conditioning with Mane and Tail. I will be cowashing today with V05 con. I'm deep conditioning with Loreal's. I slacked off on my hair vitamins but I'm back on that as of two days ago. I want to take advantage of the hair growth the summer brings. I hope to reach BSL by my August relaxer. I will be using a black tea rinse to combat shedding per Tracee at K.I.S.S. My hair usually doesn't shed at all after my relaxer. I am going to wash with a neutralizing shampoo before I deep condition. Just in case my hairdresser did something funny.

Hey chicas!

I went to the salon and got a relaxer and jet black color on Thursday 6/10.
My scalp was really hurting. I think I didn't wait enough days between my wash. Anywhoo I was in pain. When it was over my stylist sea breezed my scalp that HURT! but it keeps scabs from forming if you burn during a relaxer. My hair must be doing well because she started questioning what I was doing to it. Yeah me!

I'm currently full armpit APL length my hair grew 2 1/2 to 3 inches this go round. I'm happy with that. I have four inches to go to get to BSL which is brastrap length. Once my hair reaches that length I will reevaluate my goals.

It's time to relax

I washed on Sunday. My hair has about a 2 - 3 inches of new growth. It tangles and is hard to manage I have to get a relaxer this week. I'm 9 weeks post. I thought I could stretch like the other bloggers but my hair texture won't allow it. I tangle as soon as my new growth is kinky.
