Hair Texlax Update

Monday, November 02, 2015

Hey Hairgineers,

So good to be back, i have been away due to the delivery of my beautiful baby girl (will spare you guys the details, loolz). My last texlax was in January 29th and i had planned on texlaxing my hair in April, but my pregnancy was challenging i could not bear putting any relaxer on my hair. My baby came in July and i have been busy taking care of her, 39weekspostrelaxer (9 months) i finally texlaxed.

I know its such a long time, at some point i was thinking of transition but with a baby to take care of i didn't think i would have time to take care of my hair, natural.


I gently parted my 39weeksposttelax under growth and then applied Vaseline petroleum jelly to my scalp. I had so much thick under growth i had to gently part and finger detangle to remove any shed hair before combing with my Mebco detangling comb. I sectioned my hair into four parts and applied Roux Porosity Control & Corrector Conditioner to my previously relaxed hair. I twisted and pinned and covered with my silk scarf till the texlax day.


The relaxer application and smoothen took exactly 25 minutes, i had to go for a professional relax because of the amount of the new growth.

The relaxer application started from the front part of my hair so this was more processed than the back side. I intend to start the relaxer application from the back during my next relaxer application, inorder to balance the texture. I am also looking at trying out the half and half method, (you can find out more about it on just grow already blog page).


I went to the salon for a 7 days texlax follow up wash (this is very important), after which i blow dried and flat ironed my hair. I am so glad i was able to retain length and my ends are healthy too. yaaaayy
