Relaxed 4-25-08. As a result, experienced extreme breakage. By 5-25-08, Less breakage present using frenchee and baggying regularly.
Flat-ironed early June, length check:Almost, almost, almost....No wait, Arm Pit Length.
Becoming quite fond of Co-washing( Aura Cherry Almond Bark Condish & Proclaim Olive Oil Condish)
!!Officially Arm Pit Length!!
Luminized twice in two months.
Noticed hair was more porous due to coloring.
Will slow down or stop and go back to black rinses.
Still greasing wih frenchee(pine tar) and using BB Growth Lotion for moisturizing.
5 Mos. Post Relaxer.
Shedding has slacked up some.
Still holdin' it down at APL.
Don't wash hair as much due to changing weather.
BB Growth Lotion and Frenchee are my curent staples for moisture.
Noticing Split ends and breakage on ends.(eeeeh!!)
Must become an avid baggyer.
To bra strap length and beyond....
*6 mos Post! Lasr relaxer was 4-25-08*
Breakage continues to slack.
Hair is softer thanks to Doo Gro Growth Oil.
Still not baggying like I should, but I keep my scalp iled with Doo Gro.
Still using BB Growth Lotion.
Still not washing due to weather, but this allows hair to retain moisture.
Haven't done a length check, assumng still at APL.
Staples: Frenchee(ran out), BB Growth Lotion, African herbal grease(not really a staple, just using since I ran out of frenchee).
New Staples: Doo Gro Growth Oil, Doo Gro Tingling Growth Shampoo, 100% Boar Bristle Brush, BTZ Wax stick (my baby!), and castor oil(ran out).
Permed hair after 7 mos post.
Used PCJ No lye relaxer and loved it!
Hair did not experience much breakage.
Used Stabilizer and colored w/ Dark&Lovely in Midnight Blue.
Nice and shiny after blow drying.
Hair is Officially Full Arm Pit Length (actually a little past) and creeping its way to Bra Strap Length (Goal-Mid-Back Length).
Hair remains nice curly, wavy texture post perm.
Used Cantu shine serum.
12-14-08: Baggyed w/ BB Growth Lotion, sealed w/ Cantu shea butter serum, oiled scalp w/ Doo Gro Growth Oil.
12-15-08:Ends are so split, why?! After serious contemplation, I decided they needed to be cut. Dusted ends about 1/4 inch and baggyed.
12-26-08: Washed and Straightened. Used Pert Plus(oldie but goodie of mine), Condish w/ Bio Infusion hydrating cream balm.
Result: Soft & shiny, but lifeless
As far as length goes:
Unfortunately, I had about 1/4 inch of damaged ends that had to go.
Began moisturizing & paying more attention to ends. Noticing less bulbs on ends.
Overall hair health is a B+! Good Job!
2 Perms this year: Thanksgiving and Christmas.
To Bra Strap Length and beyond.......
Larry Darnell Brunson "Uncle Larry D"
IN LOVING MEMORY
Hair appears to be at a stand still.
Hair is very thick, though shedding still occurs.
Not satisfied w/ ends, splitting.
I think there may be some growing going on, however, I won't be able to tell until my next silk out.
New Products: Motions CPR, Motions Moisturizer, Olive Oil, Bees Wax.
Old Staples: Doo Gro Growth Oil.
Baggyed this month.
10/3/2011- Dudley's DRC- 28
The Aphogee left my hair softer....but....I think the DRC was more effective. Plus I like the DRC's ingredients better than Aphogee's.
This will be repeated every 6-8 weeks. I will be bunning my way to MBL. Not even straightening for my Bday! (11-19)
