8 weeks post relaxer - Wash day

 1. Shampooed hair with Elasta QP creme conditioning shampoo (new product) this product is a sulphate free shampoo

2.I then black tea rinses my hair using my spray bottle, so far this is my favourite way of doing tea rinses, it gets it right to the scalp and on every section.
3. Applied Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Daily Treatment for 5 mins then rinsed.

4. I deep conditioned with Vatika Deep Conditioner (this contains henna) and added some peppermint oil for my scalp and grape-seed oil and lavender oil. I sat with a heat cap for 15 mins and rinsed with cold water.

5. I t-shirt dried my hair for 30 mins.

6. After removing the t-shirt I applied Aussie Miracle Insurance Leave in Conditioner and proceeded to detangle.

7. After detangling I pinned my hair and left it to aired.

8. Sectioned my hair in 3 M&S with ORS Carrot oil and coconut oil.

Verdict: I am currently 8 weeks post relaxer, my new growth is too manageable at this time, this surprises me as during my last stretch I swear I was ready to relax my hair at this stage.

Happy Hair Journey’s Ladies! :-)

8 weeks post, texlaxed hair - 1/2 inch new growth


  1. How you do tea rinses sounds like a good idea! Will have to try that x

    1. I do black tea rinses with all my DC washes now. I just boil 3 tea bag in 1 litre of water and leave it to cool down. Then when its cool/cold I put it in my spray bottle and just aim for my roots, it has really helped me with shedding. I always follow it up with a smoothing treatement, at the moment its Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Daily Treatment.

      Give it a try and let me know how it works for you! :)

  2. I can see your coils popping up. Good luck with your stretch.

    1. Thanks, I can feel them! I just realised its quite difficult to make out the difference between my texlaxed hair and my new growth.

  3. PMSS Daily Treamtment is amazing!!


    1. It really is amazing! I wasn't sure about it in the start but I think it really has helped me with my strecth this time round.
