my emergency relaxer and trim

so i had to have an emergency relaxer. this is what happened. ok. yesterday, i saw my hair was so stiff and breaking and shedding. it was a mess. my hair was horrible yesterday. i also saw my ends splitting almost a inch up. it was time to relax. so at nine weeks, today i did. someone told me a comment saying that a relaxer may or may not solve my problems. whatever, lol. i relaxed and i am very happy with the results.

last night, i oil my scalp with carrot oil, also the ends. i moisturized my hair to prevent over processing. i was planning on texlaxing the time, but my hair was in such bad shape that i decided that it would be best if i relax bone straight, just to see what is exactly going on. this morning, i based my scalp and continue with a Creme of nature relaxer. with my thick hair, i was very surprised that i did not run out from that small jar, lol. next, i used the neutralizing shampoo and dc'ed with creme of nature deep active moisturizing conditioner and a little oil. i dc'ed with heat for the first fifteen minutes and the other forty-five was without. i rinsed and added my HE LTR leave in and allowed my hair to airdry. after my hair was completely dried. i added a little of my olive oil moisturizer on my ends and base my hair with kemi oyl, my heat protectant. i flat ironned my hair and it turn out beautifully. its soft. its bouncy and i had to take a little of in the front due to bad ends. i hate that my hair is lacking alittle shine, but i will work on that. overall, i am very pleased with my results.

my tshirt? ok, my tshirt says that i am somewhere between one inch and two inches from APL. so i had a little growth. that good. i am very pleased. i didn't expect much because of my other emergency trim. however, i can say that my hair is almost at the healthiest state that it has ever been. i almost forgetting about these goals that i have set for myself, about when i am going to meet this length and that length. i am pleased that my hair seems healthy. i am going to continue on this journey for healthier hair. if length comes, then length comes. i will post a few counters here at sometime just to show when i was expecting some of these goals. but i am going to, from here on out, let my mind rest about these expectations. i am going to check when the time is near just to see if i am making the goal, lol. but other than that, i am just going to go about my business, taking care of my hair and stopping watch for my hair to grow longer. i know the longer i watch the longer it will take my hair to grow. in a way, i wan't to be surprised. hopefully i will get a surprise by christmas, lol. but i will not be checking for it.

as you can see, i had to renege on my no heat challenge for the month because of this. i am disappointed, but i will try again. since i will not be looking for my length anymore, i can have these monthly goals to keep me busy. so watch for the pictures and my length counters.
