I have been enjoying my hair especially the new growth, its amazing soooo amazing, its about 3 and 1/2 inches and i have decided to stretch to about 18 or 20 weeks post because i have not suffered any breakage and i am 16 weeks post relaxer. Am sure will relax early into the new year and be able to also set my 2015 healthy hair goals and length goals.I am full Arm pit length now and was hoping to be Bra Strap Length by December 2014 but i am now in a protective style to help me stretch for longer so will only give an update and length check in January after my relaxer touch up. Started taking hair vitamins have tried Manetabolism and Maxi hair but i think Manetabolism is better than Maxi Hair will do a separate post on my hair vitamins and give a detailed review. The past 2 washdays have been amazing actually 3 i did a midweek cowash too. Hadnt been cowashing of late i have thought of bringing it back into my regimen. My washday routine has been the same except the products i used to deep condition my hair with. The first weekend washday was
Protein ORS Hair Mayonnaise and the second was moisture Queen Helene Cholesterol, the third was a balance of the two protein deep conditioning ORS Replenishing conditioner followed by a moisturizing deep conditioning treatment Queen Helene cholesterol. I have been using heat when i deep condition this has helped maintain very soft new growth and stronger hair. The main thing that i have been focusing on is keeping the line of demarcation (where the new growth meets the old relaxed hair) moisturized to prevent breakage. i have been doing my daily scalp massages with my oil mix of Coconut oil, Castor oil, Olive oil and a few drops of Rosemary and peppermint essential oils. Moisturizing with Scurl no drip for the growth, Elasta QP Olive oil and Mango Butter or ORS moisturizing hair Lotion on days my hair felt a bit dry and sealing daily with Olive oil or hot six oil and castor oil on my ends. Will put pictures of the products i have been using and will explain in detail on my products review page of what these products do and how i use them on my healthy hair journey. Am now in a protective style thick cornrows and loving them.
