The weekend is over and I enjoyed my 2nd texlax experience. It was like old home week at the salon and it was good to see “Fly”, Greg, Scoop and the crew! We all had a BLAST! My results were nice and thick but just not what I was expecting. Why was I thinking that my hair would be longer? My Sis in the journey said that maybe it’s because I didn’t get my hair relaxed bone straight. When I look at pictures of my hair (see picture) when it’s wet it looks longer, even with the new growth. Is that it? Is that the reason? Because I didn’t relax bone straight? Is this considered texlax shrinkage? Do you think it would have looked longer if I would have at least had her flat iron it? Again, I’m not mad or even disappointed I just thought for sure it would have been longer.
She used Nouritess relaxer along with that family of shampoo, conditioner & DC. She didn’t want to use allot of what I brought because she thought most of it had too much protein which would not be good for me after a chemical service and maybe this is why my last texlax was not good. I brought a bag full of products but she openly professed her dislike of the Aphogee 2 min reconstructor – why I don’t know. Of all the items I brought we only used my conditioning cap and the PM Skinny Serum.
I DC’d for 45mins and got a roller set (see pictures on Facebook). After she was done I had her wrap it because it was late and I was going home.
So here I am a few days after my relaxer back in a bun. Actually I have not worn it down except to take the picture for le blog. The next morning I took the pictures and put it up in a loose bun. Same thing on Sunday…another loose bun and when I went outside I wore a silk 1/2 scarf and my straw hat. Am I getting to be “over the top?” Am I hiding and/or over protective of my MANE SQUEEZE?
I also want to share with you that I’m scared to have my ends out. I see others with their ends hanging on their shoulders and it makes me want to cringe. I am looking forward to doing it when there is a reason (event or some special occasion) but until then I will serve and PROTECT! LOL
Am I the only one? What do you think about my results of not relaxing bone straight? Shrinkage? Do you think there is much of a difference in the picture (keep in mind I had packed new growth with the wet hair)? Let me know your thoughts?
Make it a SUPER day! Thanks for reading!!
