I relaxed my hair on Friday, the 23rd of August 2013. I must say that the stylist who relaxed my hair did not do a good job of it. At least for the relaxer part although she fared better when it was time to blow dry my hair.
Before going to the salon I coated my hair with some Wura’s Secret Hair Growth oil, my New Wura’s Secret Hair Moisturiser and Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie (review coming soon) and then sealed again with my Wura’s Secret Hair Growth Oil. I must say that I was very heavy handed with all the products and my hair was literally coated. For my scalp I applied a lot of Wura’s Secret Hair Growth Oil again.
I got to the salon and she relaxed my hair, mind you I was only 10 weeks post. She acted like my new growth was tremendous and she kept asking other stylists questions. At this point I should have asked her to stop but I felt bad because I actually quite like her (because she appears to be doing the best she can and always listens).
Anyway she relaxed my hair, washed it and put me underneath the steamer. She also blow dried my hair using a comb attachment, she was quite gentle at this point. My hair looked so lovely (I wish I had taken a picture then), however the next day I discovered a lot of relaxer burns around the perimeter of my head. I am now working on getting these burns to heal and will probably do a post on dealing with bad relaxers to help others who might be in this situation.
Here are a few pictures of my current hair length days after I had it blow dried and humidity had set in. Please note my hair was not flat ironed (which may have stretched it out even more) as I really despise the flat iron. I have the sort of hair that is thick and unruly and always seems to shrink until I get a flat iron to it and then it surprises me. But after all is said and done I absolutely love my hair.
This post is also a sort of Birthday Hair Growth Challenge update (on the length of my hair sort of, after the hair cut), I hope you all have entered and are reaping the benefits. Don’t forget that the end date is 26thOctober 2013 and the lovely prices up for grabs.
What have you all been up to hair wise?
