My Relaxed Life

Wash Day and a Length Check

Today was wash day. Below are the products I used this week.

Wash Day 7/21/13

I didn’t prepoo my hair this week, because I planned to clarify/chelate this week. I brought a new shower head with a filter, so this was the perfect time to clarify.

1. I shampooed with Olive Oil Creamy Aloe Shampoo. This my staple clarifying shampoo. Leaves my hair feeling squeaky clean, but not at all stripped.

2. Did a protein treatment using Redken Extreme Strength Builder Plus. I liked this protein treatment. I didn’t feel like it was full of unicorn tails and completely amazing, but I’ll continue to use it.

3. Deep conditioned with Silk Dreams Hair Care (SDHC) Chocolate Bliss Conditioner for about 3 hours. I got busy doing things around the house.

I didn’t really have to do much detangling. Like always, the Chocolate Bliss Conditioner pretty much melted my tangles away. I did a quick length check and did a mini dusting of my ends. My ends look in good shape, but I feel like I noticed a little thinning on my left side. It’s really hard to tell for sure, because I have varying degrees of mid-strand texlaxed hair that could be causing shrinkage.  I also have having some serious paranoia about my hair thinning since my setback earlier this year. Anyway, I won’t be able to tell for sure until I flat iron, and I won’t be doing that until my September relaxer. If it is thinning I’m just going to chalk it up to the game. Once I hit BSL I’ll keep trimming until it grows in. Below is the length check picture:

Sorry for the crappy quality picture, and my hair was wet. I’m happy with my growth, and my ends look good for now. I should make BSL this year, and I’ll probably kick it there for a while. I need to focus on thickening up my hair vs. focusing on length.

After I air dried my hair I wrapped it up into a bun, and it’ll stay there until I braid it up for a braid out next week.
