Relaxer day, Saturday 12th July went on very well and I'm 5 days post. I used Vitale relaxer and the same products I use on previous relaxer days, and used the same methods. I washed my hair yesterday and find that I am still texlaxed though I allowed the hairdresser to smooth within the last 2 minutes with the comb because I wanted my hair 80% straight. I had issues with reversion with last February's relaxer and had to relax again after just 6 weeks.
Overall, I am happy that I see progress though I was only 12 weeks post. My hair was very thick even on relaxer day and a day after though I rollerset using setting lotion. I see increase in length too. I am deeply thrilled because my roots are texlaxed so my hair may really be longer than it shows. I still do not want to flatiron yet and just hope to reach my bra strap length goal without having to flatiron my hair to get the length. I love voluminous hair and airdrying gives me just that!
After my wash 2 days ago, I find that my hair is reverting again especially at the back and I don't know how much more it would revert. Looks like 70% straight right now but the back feels heavy and extremely thick. It tangles a lot back there already. I will put it in braids or thread it up and wear my wig if I find it unmanageable in the coming weeks. I have to find a workable solution to my texlaxed woes because I really like the thickness that comes with it. If only my hair would be more manageable!!
How long before you do a corrective relaxer when needed?
