Olive Oil Natural Relaxer

Hi All,

Just finished washing out my hair after using the instructions to relax my hair using Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

I don't think I can say after this first use my hair feels anything near straight or relaxed but it feel super moisturised and perhaps even a bit texturised.

A very messy endeavour, but no gloves required and I just had to warm the olive oil in the microwave for 30 seconds, it came out nice and warm. I then just used a comb and my fingers and applied it liberally to the roots and all the way along the ends.

Three hours later (with children running around I had to wait till they were napping) I washed out the olive oil and ran my fingers through and my hair felt soft and moisturised but definitely still curly.

Soft and smooth and this is great when your stretching but the whole exercise just felt like a very long pre-poo. I know ... I know ... I'm not going to results immediately right! Right! So I guess I will keep on doing this, maybe once a month for the next couple of months and see how far I can stretch and if I can manage without a chemical relaxer full stop! Maybe, maybe not.

Will let you know how it goes but so far, hair not straight but definitely super moisturised! And manageable
