Month 1 - October 2008 - SL

I had my hair professionally relaxed. Before I did, my stylist consulted with me and wanted to know the reasons why. I thought this was awesome, she wanted to understand the psychology behind deciding to relax. I always knew I was in good hands. Mizani Butter Blends was used (the same relaxer used for my text). Throughout my album, I'll detail what was done and what I plan to do differently to keep my hair healthy. No worries, Nainne is not relaxed, nor will she ever be while living with me!

BTW - SL means shoulder length, aiming for APL (Arm Pit Length)

 

Techniques

I have been reading, lurking on many hair forums to get ideas, the one I love most is Long Hair Care Forum. I realized that when my hair was damaged before when I was relaxed it was because of over processing, daily heat, the chi iron is NOT something that should be used daily!!! I was using it daily! color, etc etc. I didn't realize it, but I was really abusing my hair!
