This post is going to serve as my starting place for the Hairlicious Inc.: Castor Oil Challenge Part 9. I will be participating at the intermediate level, which requires that I: (1) apply castor oil to my scalp twice a week followed by a 2-5 minute scalp massage and (2) add one teaspoon of castor oil to my weekly deep conditioner.

My relaxer day is right around the corner and I thought, let's talk relaxers (more specifically, my go-to relaxer). When I started relaxing my hair myself, I knew that I wanted to use Affirm relaxer because that's what I had used for the majority of my relaxer life pre-hair journey and I was afraid of changing to something new. But when I started researching it I realized that Affirm had more than one relaxer system out there. And I wasn't sure whether I was using their regular formula or the FiberGuard System. But after I read the differences between the two I knew that I'd be trying the FiberGuard System.

Lately, I've been roller setting my hair in this half and half method and I like it a lot. Below you'll find a pictorial on how I set my hair. This method may or may not be easier than the traditional mohawk method. But if you're having issues with the mohawk method, I would definitely give this a try.

I had all these plans for how I was going to conquer postpartum shedding -- tea rinses (black and green), prenatal vitamins, low manipulation styles, no heat... nothing has worked. It's hard to not be worried about where my hair will be once this shedding finally levels off because my hair falls out all the time and everywhere. Most of the "research" I've done says that I just have to let it run its course, but I'm continuing to do all of the above (and thinking about adding garlic to my deep conditioner or hot oil treatment too) -- it certainly couldn't hurt.

the slackness that went on with my hair over the last few weeks of this relaxer stretch, everything went well. I did not do an official length check or flat iron with my hair, but if you watch the video, I do pull my hair down to show you where it is currently. An official length check will be coming at the end of the year, where I hope to be able to claim waist length hair.

There's no doubt that my priorities have shifted since having a tiny human to take care of. These past few weeks, I have not been following my current hair regimen. Instead of my typical, pre-poo, shampoo, deep condition routine, I've been haphazardly co-washing my hair when I could find the time and moisturizing when I could not. And as much as I want to believe that doing that was enough, it really hasn't been. My hair has been looking and feeling rough for a while now, lol. Once I realized that I had allowed a full month of this foolishness to go on, I became determined to find the time to do a full wash day.
