Emergency Relaxer Update

If you follow me on Instagram, You will know that I relaxed my hair about ten days ago. Unfortunately, I had to cut my stretch short due to my ends. I know this sounds crazy. I had the twists in and thought I may have experienced some breakage. After I took them out, I realized that I did not, I started protective styling. Well, when I would do my weekly washes, I would see a few split ends with every wash. I would cut the few I would see, and I would go on with the wash and another week of protective style. But this was the same thing every week. I got a little worried that if I continued to search and destroy this way that I would 1) not have any progress with my upcoming relaxer and 2) I would cut myself an area that was shorter than the rest. I couldn't risk it. My ends were scaring me too bad. I felt like best way to determine this was with a relaxer. I mean straightening my hair could have been easier too, but why add more strain to my weakening ends anyway??? That was my logic. Anywho, I realized about four days before the I relaxed that I was going to. So I prepped my hair with a good wash and protein treatment. A few days later, I relaxed at 9 weeks post. No new details to mention on how I relax my hair since I am working on a regimen. However, I am pleased to announced that I retained length and my ends were treated and dealt with. Despite cutting the stretch, I regret nothing. I was in the business of saving my ends, and it proved successful. I am going to relax in December next. I plan on babying my ends until that relaxer. I would love to be grazing BSL for Christmas, but I will settle for thick hair that is at full BSB.

  1. Great results, you have definitely retained length! You will definitely be grazing BSL by December. You need to do what works for you! I have also embarked on a long stretch, but if I feel my hair can't do it, I am not going to push it at all!!
