My stretch has been going well, I am now 8 weeks post relaxer, and aiming to get to 12 weeks post this month
Expectation: 8 weeks post – Achieved
Issues: My new growth started acting up at 5 weeks posts, it was dry, I started using S Curl No drip moisturise which did help, I was moisturising my hair every day, which I think was a bit too much, as I had a lot of product build up. This month I will listen to my hair and moisturise when needed.
Goals for August: Get to 12 weeks post and baby my new growth
I have been M&S my nape with S Curl No drip Moisturiser and ORS Carrot Oil.
I make sure I also have a silk bonnet on and sleep on a silk pillow case. So far I think my nape is getting strong and I have not noticed any breaking off. No other issues with my nape, will continue doing what I am doing.
I have been M&S my ends and protective styling them. I have used direct heat once this month, but I don’t think this should be an issue. I will continue doing what I am doing and most importantly protective styling!
I did do 2 new protective styles in this month.
One was for my friend’s wedding (midweek wedding in the Mountains of North Wales)
