Regimen + Goals

My Hair Regimen: I moisturize and/or oil my hair daily. As needed (usually weekly) I cleanse my hair and scalp with a moisturizing shampoo (or a clarifying one if there's build up). I do a moisturizing OR protein treatment with every shampoo. I stretch my relaxers 3-4 months.

My go-to protective/low manipulation styles: buns, braid-outs and halfwigs. In 2012 I want to start experimenting with more heat-free styles. I air dry most of the time and flat iron for length checks only.

I'm currently midback length (MBL) and actively working towards reaching waist length by my graduation in mid-2012.

Stretching Update

I'm 10 weeks post and I have a lot of new growth :) Today I had the bright idea of washing my hair bent over the shower. BIG MISTAKE. Normally I can do this within my first 5 weeks post with no problems, but right now I'm double that many weeks post. Now my hair is a tangled mess :( My plan is to co-wash and detangle tomorrow (standing in the shower this time!)

Other than that, my stretch is going nicely! I have no idea as to when I'm going to relax next. Just taking it day by day and loving every step of the way!
