Air drying @ 12 weeks post relaxer/ texlax

I deep conditioned my hair with my usual deep conditioner tea tree cholesterol mixed with ORS replenishing conditioner and my oil mix( safflower oil, olive oil, castor oil & coconut oil). after t shirt drying for 10 minutes i applied my  home made leave in conditioner and lastly i applied a serum.

 This makes detangling very easy for me and my hair is always very soft. I will be doing a review on that very soon. I am currently 13 weeks post but these pictures were taken at 12 weeks post, i have lots of new growth which is still easy to manage. i hope it stays like that since i am planning to texlax my hair again in September.I have also realised that my texlaxed hair and my new growth behave the same, these two textures love water( moisture) so i will be co washing at least once a week for extra moisture.



After applying my leave ins i detangled with my wide tooth comb and proceeded to apply my satin scarf to keep my edges tamed. this really works in getting my edges flat. and when my hair is dry i usualy just remove the scarf and bun my hair.

I am really loving my texlaxed hair, i have so much texture and since the natural hair and the texlaxed hair are almost the same texture i don´t have a problem with breakage at the line of demarcation where the two meet, however i do have to be careful with the line of demarcation between the relaxed and texlaxed hair. I will be so glad when i am fully texlaxed but that will take a couple a years.



Two days after air drying this is what my hair looked like. quite nice and soft but i do have major shrinkage of the texlaxed and natural hair.

  2. How do you style hair so that the shrinkage is not too obvious?

    1. I usualy bun most of the time, but sometimes i do braid outs which make all three textures blend in together and the shrinkage is not obvious at all.

  3. How do you change from relaxer(straight) to texlaxing without damaging the hair?

    1. i Have to admit that the first few months were not easy and i ended up with a setback, the back of my hair wass breaking leaving me with a W shape in the hair, i then realised after lots of research that my texlaxed hair and new growth needed more moisture so i started co washing at least once in between my regular wahses, this has really helped in managing the hair and breakage has greatly reduced. i would suggest doing some research on longterm transitioning to natural hair the tips will also work for transitioning to texlaxed hair.
