My hair is suffering

Split ends, dryness and breaking and I am babying my hair. What is it that I could be doing wrong? Who knows? I continue to work with my hair.
What am I doing now?

Well, I have been adding a hot oil treatment as my prepoo. I was hoping that this would help with the overall strength with my hair, but I have yet to discover what is going on. I have yet to find a protective style. I am still tending to my hair day after day. I was hoping to put a flexi rod set in, but the rain in lower Alabama has been rough for a few days, so I have been trying to work around the weather by utilizing my professional go-to hairstyle: the pincurl updo. Quick, sleek and out of the way, I have been working with this style all week. Today is my last work day of the week. Thankfully, I will actually have time to give my hair a good washing so that I can tend to my hair properly.

I am currently five weeks post. My goal is to stretch my relaxer until December and see what the Christmas holiday takes me. I am stretching in order to start over in my HHJ as a full texlaxed lady. We will definitely see though, The urge to bone straight relax my hair grows stronger within my soul everyday, lol. However, school and my job keeps me out of my hair. I continue to work on finding out what will save my length while I stretch. I plan on trimming my hair once a month to keep my ends blunt and to chip away the dead, overprocessed relaxed ends. The very thought of ridding my relaxed ends keep me encouraged to continue to run this race I call a HHJ.

Until next time,


  1. Hey Alexis! We've all been there before chica. Once you give your hair a good deep #washdayexperience---I bet that the dryness and breakage will subside. You got this girl!

  2. My hair suffered greatly from split ends last year. I started hiding under wigs and that has helped tremendously. Wishing you all the best and hoping things settle down.
