  1. My Texlax/ Relaxer Process

    I coat my previously relaxed strands (mix of neutralizer, conditioner and oil and/or Vaseline). I mix in about a tbs wheatgerm oil and SAA into relaxer and apply. I rely on the oil to slow down processing so, I can take the whole 20-25 mins to get it all in.

  4. March 2011 Check Length Check

    1st quarter of 2011 was pretty rough on me, personally. I stayed by my mother's side as she went through the final stage of cancer and passed away. During this time, I had very little time or focus for haircare. I was 7 through 9 months post relaxer and kept my hair in 4 Celie braids most of the time. I moisturized as often as I could remember, baggied my hair most nights and hoped for the best.
