Finally Relaxed!!!

Relaxer day finally arrived. I relaxed on 3/8/11. I had a setback and did not keep any of the growth I had. I also lost some thickness. For some reason I'm not even mad about it cause it was all my fault. I neglected my hair and knew the consequences of doing so and ignored it. I consider this a lesson learned.
I used Organic Root Stimulator Relaxer regular strength. I used everything in the box except the wrap lotion. After rinsing out the relaxer, I left the protein treatment in my hair for about 2hrs without heat under a plastic cap. I applied the ORS Moisturizing Hair Lotion and GVP Silk Remedy in my hair evenly then air dried half way through. I blow dried the rest of my hair. The following day I straightened my hair and wrapped it. I didn't not apply anything else to my hair prior to doing that. My hair felt so soft and was so bouncy. I needed a trim VERY badly and did that the next day. Yes this was a three day process. I did not trim my hair to get it even, just to get rid of the split/damaged ends. I trimmed about 1 1/2 inches off in most areas. I wanted my hair to be healthy and that is more important than length. With healthy hair, length is sure to follow. I noticed in the back my hair is shaped in a W! I did say I had a setback, Maybe I should have said a HUGE setback. From this day forward I will start back treating my hair like silk. Excuse the quality of the videos. It was just something i decided to do real quick with the front facing camera on my HTC Evo. My next blog will be on my new regimen.
