Long time no talk. I know I have been super M.I.A. with my blog (don't worry my youtube channel is the same way). I'm not going to pretend that I'm going to be posting back regular, because I'm in law school and it is my 1L year which tends to be the toughest. If you don't know most law school have mandatory grading curves, so my life has literally been law school.
Anyways I wanted to talk to you guys about my hair and what I have been doing. I got a relaxer last week on like tuesday I believe. I relaxed at 8 weeks post because my last relaxer was really under processed. I also switch for no-lye relaxer to lye relaxer. Lye Relaxer makes my hair feel so much better than than no-lye relaxers, but they make my scalp burn like crazy. So I'm kind of in a dilemma. Some people have recommended other lye-relaxers for me to try. Which I will because I do love how my strands of hair feel after using lye relaxer. Then at the same time going natural has cross my mind for the first time ever (No I'm not saying I'm going natural) it just has crossed my mind.
Lately I have been harassed I would say by others about my hair growth and why after 2.5 years my hair hasn't really been growing. First I'm going to say I don't know I'm not in my hairs mind. Second I'm going to say it took my hair about 1.5 to even get healthy before I started to see any real growth. My hair was severely damage before my hair journey. I used to relax my hair every 4 weeks, flat iron it ever other day and wash it ever 3 weeks, never deep conditioning and my one side of my hair was ear length. Another thing is my hair does grow but it doesn't really grow in length it grows in thickness with every relaxer stretch I do my hair gets thicker and at about 4 months I might finally notice a little length. Then, my hair is just a slow mover.
So right now my hair is about 1.5inches away from armpit length. The middle of my hair is still growing slow. I have still being trimming away at my ends bi-monthly to get rid of my thinning ends. (which is another major reasoning I am not seeing growth because I have been cutting at my hair)
|my first time doing these. Its not perfect but I'm quite proud of myself|
Well I'm in my protective style
Wash 2-3 weeks (when I feel like it needs washing)
Oil my scalp with my sulfur mix (every other day)
Inversion method 1 week once a month
Moisturizing with a spray everyday or every other day
Hope all is going well Guys, I still read all comments, so if you have any question please leave them down below or feel free to email at email@example.com
P.S. Pray for me during my 1st semester of law school
