Air dried hair, at ten weeks post relaxer.

October 20, 2012

It has been ten weeks since i got my last relaxer touch up. I do have at least an inch of new growth and this means that I have to be more careful with the way I handle my hair to avoid unnecessary hair breakage. Especially since i have three different textures to deal with. Here is how I washed my hair this time round.
I did a before shampoo treatment to my hair by applying a mixture of olive oil, coconut oil, safflower oil, wheat germ oil & castor oil to my hair and leaving it on for about three hours. 
Oil treatments really make my hair soft and conditioned. 

After this treatment I proceeded to shampoo my hair with the seba med everyday shampoo, which is a sulfate free shampoo and does not strip my hair too much.
Immediately after shampooing I deep conditioned my hair with a mixture of the Lustrasilk mango shea butter   & the organic root stimulator replenishing conditioner. The reason why I mixed the two conditioners together is to maintain a moisture and protein balance in my hair, too much or too little of either can lead to breakage. I applied a shower cap and let the hair conditioners sit in my hair for about one hour.

After rinsing off the conditioners and towel drying my hair a bit, I applied my Home made leave in conditioner/ moisturizer and sealed in the moisture with safflower oil, I also applied some syoss absolute oil which is a serum to my hair and even more on my ends to protect them even more. My hair was now very soft and ready for combing which I always do in small sections and with my wide tooth seamless comb  to avoid hair breakage. The last step I did was to apply a scarf to lay my edges down while air drying. After this whole process this is what my hair looked like.
