My January Relaxer Post

Hello, hair ppl!!! It's been three weeks since my last post. Between work and school, I have been bogged down. On top of that, I have caught some bad bug!!!! I'm just starting to feel better, better enough to write this post about my relaxer. 

The reason I cut my relaxer short at ten weeks post was because my NG was so hard and crunchy. DCs didn't work. Oils didn't work. Moisturizers didn't work. Air drying was a mess. When my hair started snapping at the line of demarcation, I knew I was in trouble. I decided to relax that follow day. Thankfully, I did not suffer any damage or breakage with this relaxer. 
I relaxed January 20th. 

However, I did notice that one side was growing a lot faster than the other side. Troublesome as it was, I made the conscious decision of not trimming. Then I decided to start a vitamin regimen. After a couple of weeks, I observed that my slower side was still not trying to budge. It was here that I decided to give myself a well deserved and even trim in the back. 

Altogether, I trimmed and 2 1/2 inches off, mostly on one side. 
I feel good. I'm still APL, but my ends look healthy!!!! They DNT look thin. I'm continuing my vitamin regimen, taking one hair-skin-nail, three biotins and two Hairfinity vitamins a day. I have noticed that my NG is thicker, but no other significant difference. I am currently 4-going-on-5 weeks post. 

On feb. 20, I had a sew in installed. I was so tired of styling my hair. So, I decided to give my hands and hair a break. 
It's about two inches longer than my real hair. My goal for this weekend is to give my sew in a bob cut. I'm nervous, but I know exactly what I want, so I know that I will accomplish it. I am going to do a blog post on how I cut and style my bob cut. Stay tuned for that post. 

Until next time, 
Alexis
