My Roots And Hair At 4 Months Post

My hair at 4 months post today 9/22/2010.  It feels good to make it to this point. I really want to try and make it two more months.  That will put me at 6 months.

Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner And Leave In Review

I used the deep conditioner yesterday and my hair felt like butter. I especially used it on my roots because I have a lot of new growth.  I'm 4 months post and it worked very good on my hair. It was easy to detangle and to continue with my styling.  I'm mainly doing wet sets now, which seems to be helping a lot. After, I applied a pea size amount of the leave in  to each sections of my four sections of hair, then did a roller set. My hair turned out bouncy and soft. the next day I added a pea size of coconut oil to each sections  of my hair which gave it a beautiful shine.

Alter Ego Delight



I've heard so much about this product.  That it stops shedding and breakage.  It's a product made in Italy. I plan to use this product soon.  Many ladies rave about it and have nothing but good things to say about it.  It's my next purchase for sure.

Is Texlaxing Better For Texture?

Is texlaxing better for hair texture  and for the health of the hair?  I would like to believe it is.  When stretching, I've noticed a healthier look .  It doesn't seem so thin or weak looking.  I like the thickness of my hair as it's growing. When I texlax in a couple of months, I'm really going to take a good look at my hair and compare it to when I relax bone straight.

Bee Mine Deja's Hair Milk and Bee Hold Curly Butter Review




These products are wonderful products.  I love how the Deja's Hair Milk gives me just enough moisture on a daily basis and how the Bee Hold Curly Butter helps to define my braidout ponytail (that's the only braid out I do now). It also helps to lay down my hairline front and back.

I like to use the Deja's Hair Milk with my coconut oil.  Love this combination. It's a product well worth having.  The moisture is instant and long lasting.

To Lye Or No Lye



After my stretch I have to decide if I should continue with a no lye relaxer or a lye relaxer.  I've heard that lye is a better relaxer to use because it's not so harsh on the scalp and hair.  That a no lye relaxer causes more shedding and dryness.  I've been using no lye relaxers for years.  Yes, I've really had to work on the dryness, but never really knew why. I thought the excessive dryness was normal. My hair would even feel a little hard at the roots. I also thought this was normal.  Well, when the time comes, I'll probably try the lye relaxer again and see if it's actually different.

Love That Honey


When I put honey in my conditioner, my hair feels so smooth and soft. Honey draws moisture so you know the outcome has to be good.  It makes it so easy to stretch my relaxers.  I add a couple spoons of honey and a little oil in my conditioner of choice that day. I then leave it in for an hour under a plastic cap. 

This treatment is a real treat.

Cassia The Hair Strengthener

I love cassia.  It has really helped with strengthening my hair.  I add my conditioner, oil and a touch of water to it, leave it on for an hour and my hair feels like it came back to life.  It's a little messy, but worth it. I like to use cassia once a month, usually around the beginning unless I get really busy then I use it in the middle of the month.  It's safe to use any time so it doesn't really matter if it's used at the beginning or the middle or even the end of each month.  Some people like to use it every two weeks.

I plan to use this while stretching.  I like how it leaves the hair feeling so strong.

The Help Of Wet Sets On Magnetic Rollers For Hair Health


It wasn't until I gave my hair a break from heat meaning: Flat irons, blow dryers and even the hair dryer you sit under with your rollers in your hair, and just started to air dry my hair in roller sets that I noticed a change in my hairs health, growth and even texture.  It's worth it to roller set and air dry at least most of the time. 

I like my hair straight.  Using the gray large magnetic rollers give a very straight look.  It will make the hair look like you used a flat iron.   The purple ones make my hair looked curled but more wavy.  The orange magnetic rollers give a very nice curl.   If I want a little extra, I just use either one or two flexi rods. 

When I use product for my wet sets, I use very little and that allows for more body.  It's not necessary to use a lot of product on the hair.  This was something I learned just this year. Yes, I used to be very heavy handed with applying products.

Organic Root Stimulating Replenishing Pak

When my
When my hair was brittle, weak and just plain fragile the Olive Oil Replenishing Pak made it silky, soft and full of body.  I'll always have this as a part of my regimen.  Also, when I added it right after doing a coconut oil treatment, it felt just like butter.  Pure silk.  Love this product. Well worth keeping and never changing.

EXTRA VIRGIN COCONUT OIL IS MY NEW BEST FRIEND

I've decided to do a stretch for the first time without braids, extensions , wigs or any kind of add on.  I'm a little nervous but I'm going to give it a try.  I will be 3 1/2 months tomorrow which will be 9/9/2010. So I'm half way there already. 

The Extra Virgin Coconut Oil I've been using has left my new growth so soft every day .  The relaxed part and the new growth are easy for me to handle with this oil.  I don't have to use much of it to have great moisture balance in my hair.  I just apply it to my roots, ends and hair in that order and I'm good to go.

I've also decided to texlax.  I want thicker hair so bad. lol.. I think that's the only way it's going to happen. Wet sets help with a thicker look but I want it even thicker.

Note: So far my stretch is going good.
