The Good: I have stated a few times that my hair doesn't grow out quickly after a relaxer...sometimes takes up to a month to feel any new growth at all. But surprisingly, at just 2 weeks, I felt new growth! Thick, strong new growth!! And at almost 4 weeks, I see 1/3 inch already. That makes me very happy because in the past, I waited like forever before I saw or felt new growth.
Now what has changed in my regimen lately:
1. I mixed my T444Z with black castor oil....I know I shouldn't but it was getting finished; and since my order hasn't arrived, I just thought to mix it up to have a little more.....just a little more. And I absolutely love it.......!! Just discussing it with a few hair friends as well, I found that they mix it with black castor oil too when it's getting finished..............and it works. Going against the product usage directions...............hmmmmmmmm!!
2. I massaged my scalp with coconut oil and tipped my head over for 4 consecutive days after my relaxer. Yes...I was trying the inversion method but failed at completing the full week. I had second thoughts because after the full 4 minutes, I felt a little light headed each time. Maybe I could have got the full inch if I had done it to the end................hmmmmmmmmmmmm!!
Everything else was pretty much the same as far as my wash day regimen is concerned. Only BIG change is that I have shampooed every week instead of once a month as using the coconut onion oil in my hair cannot let me go scot free without shampooing. And indeed, it stinks real bad now as it's been almost a month since the ingredients were infused in the oil.
Time to prepare another concoction.......................whoop whoop!!
How long does it take to feel new growth after a relaxer?
