Six weeks and Five Days Post Relaxer
Judging by my hairline, my new growth at my roots is now officially beyond control. It has been almost seven weeks since my last relaxer touch-up. This is "double" the wait timeframe that I had been performing my touch-ups. Remember I was at about every four weeks? I know. I am always telling my clients that four weeks is too soon. I finally know that I need to listen to my own advice. Smile.
But on a separate note, I met another hairstylist while shopping in one of my favorite stores: Tuesday Morning on last month. I am planning to have her to perform my relaxer touch-up for me this week. With me performing my own relaxers, I really lose control at keeping the relaxer at my new growth/root area. So hopefully, with this hairstylist, I should not get so much relaxer overlap onto my previously relaxed hair.
I plan to have her to use the new formula of the Design Essentials regular relaxer with Shea Butter and Olive Oil. Why? I really think that this particular improved Design Essentials relaxer is a midway point between the Mild True Indulgence (T/I) and the Regular True Indulgence (T/I) relaxer. I believe the Mild T/I relaxer is not strong enough for my type 4c curl pattern, but the Regular T/I relaxer is more aggressive than what I want touching my scalp since I am needing touch-ups within a six weeks period.
I plan to remove my "Holiday Hair" before she performs the relaxer touch-up this week. I will keep you posted on how it goes! Until then, it is "hat time."
