Hey guys! Time for a hair update!
So Oct. 28th ended my 16 week stretch and it seems like the time just FLEW by this time around! I felt that my hair was a lot easier to manage even with all the new growth that was coming in. I think what made it easier was the fact that I didn’t do a lot of manipulation when it came to styling. I probably flat ironed my hair maybe 4 times during the stretch if even that much. Most of the time when I washed my hair each week, I would air dry and put it in a bun, simply because it was easy and soooo not time consuming, and I’ve been quite busy with life over the past few months….
But anyways, on to the update. I relaxed (well my mom relaxed my hair…I still don’t trust myself to do it lol) with ORS Olive Oil Built-In Protection No Lye Relaxer System in Normal strength; that kit is truly AMAZING. I love everything that comes with it and I got absolutely no burns whatsoever, even though my scalp was itching like crazy for the past week and a half and I’m pretty sure I broke the cardinal rule of not scratching your scalp before a relaxer…smh. But thankfully, I had no adverse effects with this relaxer.
After I relaxed, washed, and DC’d my hair, I applied my leave-ins and let my hair air dry almost completely (more like I fell asleep with wet hair and woke up to really big air dried hair…smh). Then I used a new styling tool that I purchased recently:
REVLON QUICK STYLING HOT AIR KIT
I’m actually gonna be doing a more in-depth review of this product in an upcoming YouTube video. But in short, I LOVED it! Cut my drying and styling time in half! Here are some pics of the final results:
I’d say that looks like a success to me…but yeah, more details to come 🙂
Now let’s take a look at the progress!

Yay! As you can see from this pic, I am grazing APL! And this is AFTER the trim I got when I went BACK TO BLACK for my 23rd bday. I think that’s pretty awesome! Hopefully by the time next relaxer comes I will have fully conquered APL and will be able to move on to the next milestone: BSL!
Time to embark on another 16 weeks! See you guys around February 17th! 🙂
Love and God Bless,
