Relaxer Update 2

So I was 10 weeks posts (about 2 months), when I relaxed yesterday.  This stretch was a bad one for me.  I traveled a lot for track and school began to kick my butt.  As a result, I became inconsistent with my regimen.   Then I ran low on products, and just started to improvise.  By the last few weeks, I was praying time would go by faster so I could come home and relax.  I’m very happy to say, my first year of college is officially over.  I got home yesterday, and immediately got to work on my hair.

I used ORS Olive Oil Professional Creme Relaxer (Extra Strength).  I’ve found that the regular formula in most relaxers leave me with under processed/texlaxed hair, which isn’t what I’m looking for at this stage in my hair journey.  I grabbed this to try it out, and I LOVED it.  I know for a fact I haven’t gotten better at applying relaxers (I’m still pretty sloppy, and I still need to work on my speed), but the results so far look great.  I got the bone straight results I wanted and it looks like I didn’t over-process my hair.  I’m so proud of myself, and will definitely stick with this relaxer from now on.
