“Texlaxed” african hair and shrinkage.

I am currently 13 weeks post relaxer and my new growth is starting to get a bit difficult to handle. So i have decided to moisturize and seal my hair more often in order to keep my new growth soft and manageable. I might do a Co- wash in the middle of the week when i have time to moisturize my new growth as well.

I am also dealing with major shrinkage when I wash and air dry my hair, I know this is mainly because of the under-processed (texlaxed) hair and the new growth. I don´t have a big problem with that but my hair looks a lot shorter than it really is and most of the time I can´t really track my length progress without straightening it.

 My hair was still damp at this point. Note the shrinkage on the left side compared to the stretched hair, quite a big difference i would say.

Thanks for reading!

  2. Hi Nina, Co washing is simply Washington your hair using conditioner only. No shampoo.
