1 week post relaxer wash day

One week after relaxing, blow drying and flat ironing my hair, I’m back to my air dry routine.  Even though there’s a big part of me that wants to go back to straight hair, I know it’s best to continue with my current (low heat – low manipulation) hair regimen if I want to claim waist length this year.  I planned to wash my hair this weekend, but with all of the
