on my journey to healthy relaxed hair in jamaica

Double Post

Hey HHJ loves I hope all is well and I haven’t lost any of my few subscribers for being so busy trying to learn as much as possible on my new job and getting ready for the holidays. During the time of being missing I have still kept up with my hair regimen nothing much has really changed i have done a relaxer three weeks a go and I did a wash day and a protein treatment before that so this post will be about my relaxer and my recent wash day and my progress and anything new I can seem to remember that I’m doing to my hair.

So my relaxer is this;

  1. I prepped my hair by oiling my new growth and scalp with just some random hair oil there was a special occasion coming up why I wanted to relax my hair i dnt remember why but i did and then my mommy did my hair with Mega Growth Profectiv relaxer normal strength and I left it in my hair for about twenty mins and I rinsed it out with my neutralizing shampoo.
  2. After shampooing two times I put in my Organics Hair Mayonnaise as my protein to help re strengthen my hair after the relaxer process and left that in my hair for about 45 mins to an hour.
  3. After that I rinsed it out and added my Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner which i am looovvviinngg as an all round product and left it in my hair de tangled and rinsed out my hair.
  4. I then added my Cantu Shea Butter leave in and sealed with my mixture of oils that i always post about and preceded to blow dry my hair on medium heat and noticed that my hair has reached arm pit length and was so full of body and full of life and even tho my hair was not bone straight it wasn’t as textured as i always leaving it and i then oiled my scalp with my castor oil and massaged it in a little bit wrapped up my hair and went to bed.

During the two weeks of being newly relaxed I did my usual stuff I moisturised and sealed with my herbal essences moisture mix this is the one without glycerine I have one with glycerine that I will use in the warmer months even tho I’m in Jamaica the time has gotten significantly cooler. And I still add castor oil to my scalp three times a week and massaged it. i have started taking my biotin trying to do it every day but I am still afraid of break outs. I either seal with my oil mix or I have started to seal with just coconut oil  and I don’t wrap my hair every night I have stopped too much breakage i just put my hair in a loose top knot and put on my satin scarf and I am ok.

Wash Day (2 weeks)

  1. Pre pooed my hair with coconut oil this is really my go to pre poo even though I have researched numerous different recipes I am just in love with coconut oil and I covered my hair in saran wrap and a plastic bag and a shower cap and I went to bed I do this for all pre poo and deep conditioning sessions so if I say I have deep conditioned I do that or pre pooed.
  2. the next morning I washed out my pre poo and i rinsed twice with my v05 shampoo and added my deep conditioner mix. I bought a deep conditioner pack it was a strengthening masque it says hydrating deep hair conditioner and in my dye container I added it and some of my herbal essences conditioner and some castor oil and coconut oil and added it to my hair and let that sit for three hours not because i think it will be soaked in more it was because I was watching Christmas movies and just couldn’t be bothered to get up.
  3. Oh i forgot to say that I rinsed my hair with peppermint tea before I added my deep conditioner I haven’t really seen any difference in my hair like I would see if I did a black tea rinse but I will probably try again and take special attention to my hair to see if I should add it to my hair I did buy green tea today to try on my next wash day so we will see.
  4. After rinsing out my deep conditioner I added my leave in sealed with coconut oil and blow dried my hair and wrapped it up and I went to my bed.

My hair progress is going really well so far my hair is much thicker and I have always had thick hair sometimes I argue with my hair when it refuses to detangle but then I am so proud of myself for not getting tired if for some months you don’t see progress but just patience is key. I will do a photo book soon look for all my hair photos and try and do a time line for my hair.

My Current Hair Products.

  1. Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner
  2. Hello Hydration Conditioner  moisture mix (moisturise my hair with it every other day)
  3. Oil Combo mix (coconut oil, grapseed oil, castor oil, evoo0
  4. Coconut Oil
  5. Cantu Shea Butter Leave In
  6. V05 Shampoo and Conditioner (any one I have on hand it doesn’t matter to me really I am not a sulfate free type a girl)

Products I would like to try

  1. I really want to try a sulfate free shampoo I have read reviews on Creme of Nature so i will try that soon since my shampoo is finished and their liquid leave in too
  2. Also in the near future I would like to try some shea moisture products their deep conditioners specifically but they are expensive here so I will try and budget for those.

Current hair tip randoms

  1. Drinking lots of water I drink a whole lot of water mostly when I’m at home so I can use the bathroom as much as possible.
  2. Taking biotin I’m not sure if it is helping but I’m giving it a whirl
  3. Trying something new every wash day to see what my hair likes and what it doesn’t like and so far my hair is loving a lot of things.
  4. Massage my scalp every chance I get whether I oil it with castor oil or not especially my edges which is growing very well in my opinion they’re not just baby hairs now they are actually growing to be full hairs.
  5. Join challenges to create hair habits my joining several challenges over the past yr has made me stick to most of my hair habits now like my castor oil challenge now oiling my scalp with castor oil is a great part of my hair regimen now and I have just added castor oil to my hair and not moisturised and sealed.
  6. Don’t think you know everything sometimes keeping abreast of what is happening in the hair care world will make you revisit a tip or technique that you used to do and worked for your hair you have forgotten about it.
  7. Don’t be afraid to try new things and if they fail it’s okay your hair will recover from it and you will learn something new.

Until next time HHJ loves I hope this post was enough and if I don’t post before the holidays I wish everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS 2015 WHEN IT COMES AND ALL OUR HAIR CARE AND OTHER DREAMS ARE REALIZED 🙂

    Great posts! My hair actually hated the profectiv relaxer, I guess it was too strong for my fine strands. Ive also been taking the Natrol biotin 1000mcg and girl its the truth lol. It has helped me in my setback from the relaxer and has also helped grow my brows and eyelashes too. I did get minor breakouts on my face but my chest broke out the most. But overall it did help on me with growth and I do see myself buying a next bottle. I started seeing results in the third week so you have to be really consistent when taking it…..anywas ive sok me n oo much now lol
