Stretching relaxers: flat ironed hair at 21 weeks post relaxer

January 03, 2013



Straightened hair at 21 weeks post relaxer
I was really not planning to stretch my relaxer this long but somehow I have managed to do so, I will be relaxing/ “Texlaxing” my hair at the end of January so stay tuned for my relaxer preparations for the next few weeks. 

I decided to flat iron my hair on Sunday 31st of December 2012 after months of air drying. After clarifying and deep conditioning I decided not to blow dry my hair before flat ironing it, I air dried it instead and to my surprise there was actually no difference to flat ironing air dried hair as compared to blow dried hair. I guess I will stick to air drying in the future. 
My ends are still not as thick as I would like them to be but I am working on that, I will keep trimming off the thin ends until I am satisfied with the thickness.




I did however lose a lot of hair because my hair still had some tangles from the mini twists I had done the previous week. So 2012 practically ended in a second setback. However I still keep convincing myself that it will grow back and that every little setback is an opportunity for me to learn something new about my hair. I have come to the conclusion that my hair likes being left alone, so this year the only protective styles I will be doing are buns, braid outs and twist outs.

 It is really nice to be able to pass a comb through my hair.
