10 Weeks post Relaxer

Hi All,

I am 10 weeks post relaxer and sometimes I have to remind myself why am doing this. For those of you that haven't seen the beginning of my hair care journey  thought I would post this. It really helps me to see these pictures and realise how far I have come.


It also helps me remember how much confidence I have now and how much I love my hair... now, as it is! No wigs and no pieces, as that is my preference.

However you do wear your hair, it is always a good idea to keep a record to inspire yourself to carry on.
If you are out there and anyone is reading this, I know how you feel, I really do, because honestly I have been there and I have tried ever hair care thing there is going to make my hair work for me. Any fad, any product and every style going (braids, plaits, canerows, weave, wigs) and I have spent so much on my hair to see no results until the day I took the pictures above at my lowest point and realise I had to do something.

If you are just starting your hair care journey or have been on this journey for a while now and want to share it with others, email me at info@afrodeity.co.uk, we would love to hear from you!

Omg...such an inspiration. For years my hair has been neck-length and it would never grow beyond that point but now that I've started my hair journey it's healthier and growing. I'm definitely following your blog. Please follow mine as well.

Would be lovely to know what you did. My hair's been relaxed for two years and I still have problems with thin sides

@Relaxed Hair Diary - Thanks, I will most definitely check out your blog!

@Anonymous- I followed a very strict hair regime, although now I have been a bit more lax than when I first started (wash hair twice a week, deep condition, moisturise and seal), kept a hair diary ( took pictures like those above to motivate me, made a note of products that worked and products that didn't), used great products like PhytoSpecific Vital Force Bath and Jamaican Black Castor Oil.
I would say Jamaican Black Castor Oil saved my edges. However good products are no good without a good routine!
