Hair is such a breeze

with newly relaxed hair...
I'm wondering since it's wash day, should I???? Starting co-washes and DCs is the right thing to do but since my hair just got relaxed, it feels wrong lol.

Back to buns...

It is so hard when my hair is so cute to bun it lol But I have 8 weeks to pamper it to grow more for my vacation where it will get all the abuse from chlorine and salt water it will have ever longed for haha.

Back to buns but may skip the washing routine till Friday...

need to remember to fix the photo options back to small.

My bun

I went to a barbecue yesterday at a friends and since the hair was acting a mess, I just decided to bun it. Love the shine.

I still think too much comes out via shedding.

7 week post wash (prep for relaxer?)

So I pre-pooed last night with hot6oil and NTM cond, put on a plastic cap and went to bed.

Got up this morning, clarified, then applied the 2 step protein (in prep for relaxer Friday coming), went under dryer for about 15 mins, then took a break then 10 more mins. Rinsed out the hard protein, did a few seconds of porosity, then DC w garlic cond, honey mix with heat for about 20 mins and without for maybe 15 mins...why did my hair feel interesting? kinda rough. But thing is it felt ok in the shower but then...I don't know.

Been awhile since I took a wet pic...a little thin on the ends

Tried to set in a different direction....right across the front from ear to ear

This is just what came out when I roller set...more came out in the shower. More than I care to acknowledge
Love my roller sets

Trying take a pic of my new growth. I honestly don't think anyone has new growth as thick and coarse as mine...I look at people with inches and I can just imagine my hair breaking like crazy.
Finger combed
Pinned up. Nothing else to do with roots like mine.Ignore this mess

Awww mannnnnn

I am so torn...I'm lookin at hairlista and thinking that maybe if I'm patient I can stretch the 16 weeks and still look cute the hair healthy way.

I think I just need motivation to carry on....

THINK I've made up my mind...

...at the moment, I think I should clarify and do a heavy protein tonight in preparation for relaxing next week Friday. I really think I chose the wrong season (summer) to be trying a 16 week stretch. Matter of fact I should have probably skipped my last relaxer and stretched till now. Hindsight is 20/20. Also, I wonder if I BC a little too quickly. If I should have had more patience with my hair after the henna dilemma. Never again will I be so quick to BC. I shall endeavor to do my first mega stretch in the fall.

So relaxer dates for 2009:

June 12th - 8 week
Aug 7th - 8 week
Oct 16th - 10 week
Dec 18th - 9 week

March 12th 2010 God Willing - 12 week

7 week bun

Tues co-wash

Was lazy but since I was feeling sorry for my thin as all heck hair, I thought it deserved to be washed. Did a Wen co-wash with a short Neutrogena Triple Moisture (NTM) for my in-shower condition. Didn't take very long...Fri I'll do a proper DC. Used NTM leave-in also.

Last night

This morning

Cute style & my dilema

Ok, I got all cute and did an updo this weekend after flat ironing the craptastic hair I had on Fri. I know I know. I flat ironed. Very very bad.

Here's my dilema...I think my hair needs some TLC but idk what. It has been feeling so thin. So I really don't want to relax it in a week and a half @ 8 weeks post and again at 8 weeks post (1 week before Jamaica trip) BUT if I don't relax it then and wait till later (like 10 weeks) I won't be able to relax again before my Jamaica trip. The alternative is just to stretch 16 weeks like I told myself I would. Idk if I can really do that. I don't know what happens to my hair after week 12. I can just see it being a huge mess and me breaking down, relaxing, then having 4 weeks post hair in Jamaica (can NOT happen). I have 1.5 weeks to make up my mind.
