Relaxer Day!

I feel like it has been forever since I posted! I was sick last week and this week I was so busy at work, I didn’t have time to think! I need to be doing some work now, but I thought I would post about my relaxer before I got too lazy. I did my relaxer day preparation last Sunday and didn’t even post about it. Oh well … you can see my former posts. I did the same things: Clarify, Protein Treatment, Moisture Treatment. I did a horrible roller set to just stretch out my hair.

So yesterday was the first relaxer of 2014 and I was 14 weeks post. Since I am no longer timing my relaxers with my quarterly trips home, I think 14 week stretches will be the norm for me.

I went to a new lady named Joan who does hair at the salon I visited two years ago for a relaxer. I made sure that the Mizani Butter Blends system would be used, because it works for my hair and I am not switching! Before I go into details, Joan was awesome … a bit too awesome! It took me about 6 hours from start to finish! But this lady took her time, applied several treatments (protein and ending with moisture) and did an all-around thorough job! I was very impressed of how she handled my hair, despite being hella tired when I left at 10:30pm!

I loved everything but the flat ironing part. She used a wide iron, so my hair was stick straight. It is great to see the actual length, but not good for my large head to have flat hair! I threw in my satin pillow rollers to give my hair some body. You know how hair can look flat after a relaxer anyway!

So here are the photos! So it appears that your girl (ahem, me!) has her longest length approaching WL territory! I think I will get to my WL goal by May! 🙂 Too bad you can see how I totally gapped my hair up by “trimming” it this week! Oh well! It’ll go and I’ll even it out next relaxer! HAHAHAH!

Finally, the hair in the front of my hair is starting to grow out! I may be Full APL now!

And here are a few photos from the top. Loving how the relaxer took! I am thoroughly pleased!

My next relaxer will be June 20th or 21st, 2014.
