Wash Day

I'm under the dryer now with my deep conditioner in. I'm a little nervous about this wash, since it's the longest I've ever gone without a relaxer. I'm worried I won't be able to handle my new growth. I put some Vatika oil in my hair last night, and this morning I added an egg and some oils to my hair and left them in for about 20 minutes. I'm deep conditing with ORS Replenishing. I have decided to go back to what used to work when I first started my hair journey, and ORS Replenishing was a staple for me. This wash does incorporate a lot of protein, but I'm thinking my hair needs all the strength it can get! Fortunately, my hair hasn't been shedding or breaking, until yesterday. I felt like I had to wash my hair though. Along with the shedding, it felt dirty and hard. It's amazing that I used to go 2-3 weeksvwithout washing my hair. I could not imagine that now! It's hard for me to go past 6 days now.

I totally understand how you feel. I wash my hair every 3-4 days. If I go past that my scalp and hair feel so dirty. Lol. How many weeks post are you? The protein and moisture balance will help strengthen the demarcation line.

Hey Sunshyne! I'm 13 weeks post relaxer. I know that doesn't seem like much to women who really stretch, but I think this is the longest I have EVER gone! My wash went pretty well too. I'm so happy to have thicker looking hair!
