So as I promised, this post brings you my first relaxer update for the year 2013. I relaxed at 8weeks, told you all about my ordeal here. It went well this time, thank God! I actually did the entire process infront of the TV as I watched Burkina Faso play Ghana in the Semi Finals of the AFCON competition!
I am not a huge soccer person but after Nigeria had scored 4 goals, I had to know who we were going to play! So I turned my living room to a salon and yes my Hubs gave me the side eye but he saw the plea in my eyes and he understood...I definitely tried not to spend 30minutes relaxing the hair as that would not have given me the texlaxed look so I must have spent about 20/25minutes for the entire process, I coated my hair (leaving out the roots)with conditioner and coconut oil (cannot over emphasis the importance of this step) and twisted in small sections then I started with my edges which usually are the last place I apply my relaxer but with edges that looked like they had never been relaxed before, I needed to start there. I dont advice that if you have thinning edges.
With the twists, I did something different this time around. While having my hair in twists is a brilliant idea because it really prevents the tangles and breakage that arise from dividing your hair as you apply your relaxer and it saves time, if not done properly some parts of your roots can be left untouched so I decided that this time I would take a twist, loosen it, apply the relaxer with my sprush and smooth it out with a comb straight away;
