I ended my 29 week stretch on Saturday. This wasn’t my longest stretch but it was certainly the most irritating because my hair was underprocessed in several sections. Due to this, my roller sets would revert in certain areas and just be the hottest of messes. Dealing with my hair this go around also makes me wonder I had to make such a drastic cut or if the rough hair I felt was simply what didn’t straighten during my last touch up. Oh, well.
I used my normal Organic Root Stimulator Lye Olive Oil Relaxer in regular strength. I’m not sure if it’s the biotin I’ve been taking or my diet and exercise regimen but I had a grip of new growth. We ended up using 1.5 tubs of the creme mixed with castor oil. From start to finish, the relaxer application took 40 minutes! Interestingly enough, I didn’t burn at all and probably could have sat a little longer because I’m still wavy baby at the roots.
