Wash Day

Sliding in real quick...

I did not mean to just drop away like that.  But it got to a point where I was either going to be half-hearted with my posts/content or I’d have to take a break.  I opted for the latter.  And even though I’m not quite ready to come back full time, I had a moment today and decided to share a hair/life update.  As many of you who follow my

Wash Day at 6 Weeks Post Relaxer

I pretty clearly underestimated how busy I would be trying to sell one house and purchase another.  But I’m here trying to keep up my hair regimen as well as keep you guys updated on my hair at the very least.  This week I’m 6 weeks post relaxer and the plan was to do another hard protein treatment, but I forgot all about it when I started this wash day.  That means it

Removing My Braids & Preparing For Relaxer Day

After six weeks, I was ready to remove my box braids for a full wash day. I loved having these box braids and plan on installing them again in May.  The hair kept up so well.  There was no fraying or frizzing, which I do attribute to the hair that I chose to use (X-pression 100% Kanekalon synthetic hair).  By six weeks the only thing that told you their age was

flexi rod set fancyflairlady.

Last week I mentioned having a few low manipulation styles in your back pocket to get you through a long relaxer stretch.  And this one was an instant fave from the first time I tried it.  Flexi rods sets are quick, easy and a cute hair styling option.  Last weekend, I styled my hair with flexi rods after deep conditioning my ends with Chi Infra Treatment and co washing with As

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
