My Edges Have Gone Rogue!

At 10 weeks post relaxer, my edges have gone rogue.  I promised myself I would not slick them down with my gel and brush like I did with my last stretch, but after looking at my hair in the mirror this evening, I had to do something!

Here I am this evening (2 days since my most recent roller set):

My Solution: flat ironing my roots.  
Meet my cast and crew:
Comb Chase Method.  I typically use my jibere straightening comb to do the comb chase method, but I couldn’t find it.  Instead I started out using the rat tail comb, but ended up liking the round brush better for pulling my hair taut.  I only flat ironed my new growth on the front half of my head and was done in less than 20 minutes.

I used the Elasta QP silkening serum to flat iron for the first time and I really like it.  My roots feel amazingly soft and smooth.  I’m going to try it on my whole head the next time I flat iron. 

I am happy with the results, despite the evil eyes I’ve got going in this pic, lol.
Tomorrow, my hair shouldn’t look so haphazard.  :):):)

My next relaxer is in 2 weeks…

  1. really nice results, your hair came out very smooth!


  2. My edges lose their mind around week 8. Last stretch i stopped really caring, I told myself I'd try harder this stretch haha, but I feel like I lied to myself. I'm only 4 weeks post and I feel like I've already kind of given up the battle lol. I have ORS Edge Control though, I guess I'm going to rely on that to tame my edges.


  3. Yeah, my edges were acting up and I had to check to see how many weeks it had been since my last relaxer. I didn't realize it had been so long since my last touch up. But since my flat ironing session, they've been behaving.


  4. Last time I stretched my relaxer out to 13 weeks. To keep my roots in check I sprayed them with water and conditioner. Then I put it in a bun, and tied a scarf around my head. It's a great way to keep your hair slick without having to use heat. A spray bottle of water and a drop of conditioner goes a LONG way.


  5. I'm having issues with my edges now, so I'll try that now and hope that gets me through to my next relaxer. Thanks, Eclecticsprectrum. 🙂
