A website to inspire, motivate, and assist women who want to grow healthy long hair.
Hello, Ms. Kibibi!!! I LOVE your hair!!! I am truly inspired by you. I am a 4b, relaxed and right now I am 8 weeks post relaxer. Just a little history, I did have very thick, coarse long hair when I was a kid, but my mother (..I love her dearly)permed my hair for the first time w/a SUPER relaxer!!!My hair fell out and it has never been that length since...Anywho...two questions, #1 once you have completed your braidout style, do you have to redo it again at night, following your moisture & seal and #2 how should I transition from relaxed to texlax when I relax my hair in 2 weeks?? Should I use a milder relaxer or just leave on for less time?
Please be sure to do a video on those curl formers...I'm very curious!!
To maintain my braid out, I either do a loose bun on the top of my hair and secure with claw clips or I rebraid and spritz with plain water to redefine the waves. You can either use a milder relaxer, leave it less time or do both. My suggestion is to do a strand test to determine what works to get your desired results. I transitioned to texlax by going to my stylist, so that's how I learned what worked for me. I trusted her judgment, then I tried it myself.
The braidout looks fantastic! I also use those same rods and they make my braidout very curly rather than wavy. Looking forward to your product reviews.
