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.
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.
