Just wanted to let you know how I was getting on, Just relaxed my hair after approx. 12 weeks. I am finding stretching this long difficult but I just canerow my hair in two and go to work like this. I always get comments like 'I love your French plaits' but let just say there is nothing French about them. LOL!
Anyway the pic above is after relaxing and a good trim, no dusting this time, I haven't really trimmed for a good year so I thought it was about time as my ends were looking particularly scraggly.
Thanks to Jamaican Black Castor Oil, my hair is nice and thick and I love it. I have always had thin hair that just lay on my head, no volume whatsoever and I hated it, but WOW!, since I started using JBCO the results are amazing. All my bald patches are gone and my hair is noticibly thicker. I think I can actually start my mission to grow my hair longer properly as it is genuinely looking healthier. I have never seen it like this.
I was on the verge of giving up as I really couldn't see much change happening but then I looked back at my old pics and realised how far I had come, thick hair ... Me!!!... who would have thought. Keeping a Hair Journal/Diary really helps keep me on track and I highly recommend it.
My Current Regime
I only use Clarifying Shampoo once a month and I put a reminder in my diary so that I don't forget or get the dates incorrect.
I wash my hair twice a week
On Wednesday :
Co-Washing with Aussie 3 minute Reconstructor (I tend to lather it on and leave on for 3 minutes)
Conditioning with Joico K Pak Intense Hydrator mixed with Joico Moisture Recovery Conditioner and Joico Moisture Recovery Treatment Balm.
PrePoo with Coconut Oil/JBCO and Herbal Essences Hello Hydration
Shampoo with Organix Coconut Shampoo
Deep Condition with Joico K Pak Deep Penetrating Reconstructor and PhytoSpecific Vital Force Conditioner
I stretch my hair for 12 weeks and try to keep notes in my diary so I know the correct dates to relax my hair.
This time I used PhytoSpecfic's creme relaxer (Index 2) but I have also used the Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil relaxer
