I have been wanting to start a healthy hair journey for a while. So, hopefully i will be consistent. i have relaxed hair which mostly experiences dryness and consequently breakage. It’s disappointing to say the least when all along I have been trying to retain length.
Currently am at neck length, (the longest my hair has been in
months years). So currently am relaxed, 9 weeks post with about an inch of new growth. I want to texlax so as to gain volume since my ends have been thinning out. I also want to start self-relaxing at home. Trust me I have been doing research for months now and i cannot say am ready but i will do it. However am preparing for the worst, it’s all in Murphy’s Law but all ready for good results. One thing i have learned is to be patient, and patient and patient. So right now I’ll not do a length check until after my next retouch which will be in January so protective styling and probably a trim then. These decisions will be made as we progress, fingers crossed.
So for now it’s doing the basic, deep conditioning weekly or every two weeks, in which I’ll shampoo before. Tried co-washing and my hair felt dry afterwards no matter how often I moisturized. Moisturizing and sealing daily or every other day depending on my hair’s needs. One problem though, i cannot keep my hand off my hair, i don’t know how the low manipulation will work but ill restrain myself, i need a distraction.
I will share pictures on the progress, am determined to do this. Let’s see how far the next months will go. Here’s someone who inspired me to start this hair journey of Just Grow Already.
Now someone said that if a woman cuts her hair, she is having a major change in her life. As much as am not cutting mine, i feel that this is something totally great and major since am in a new chapter of my life this month of October, so help me God.
