Wash Day and Length Check

Happy Monday folks. I have been extremely sick since September has been here. Honestly, I have been too afraid to wash my hair with fear that I get even worse. Yesterday, I washed it. 

1. First I prepooed with warmed conditioner and left it on for about 40 minutes and rinsed. 

2. Next, I shampooed my hair and rinsed. 

3. Next, I applied a new detangler I purchased Friday. I massaged my roots and ends with it, then I rinsed. 

4. Lastly, I applied heat protectant to my hair and sat under my hood dryer for 20 minutes. Pressed for time, I blow dried the back of my hair (trying to make it to church). Finally, I flat ironed my hair straight. 

I wanted to do a heat pass and a length check because I have been so worried about a setback. However, when I saw my hair in the mirror, I felt a small weight lifted. I fear thinness, breakage, setbacks,  a need of a big trim. But this pic was very comforting. 
Both pics were taken on the same day, just different mirrors. It looks like I am on my way to full APL soon. 

I have been considering ending my stretch early, but this pic makes me want to continue to stretch to see how much more length I can get before my relaxer day. I am 8 weeks post and 12 weeks from my relaxer. Hopefully, I can make it. 

The reason why I did not name products is because I am trying to get a regimen together. I am no where near naming products, but I believe that I have a system constructed. 
One day at a time. 


  1. Your hair looks awesome dear, your length is everything.

  2. Girl, you are WELL on your way to full APL! Keep up the good work darling! You can totally make it through this stretch with consistency and a good moisturizer for your roots!
