~~NEW REGIMEN!!~~

*Daily Care*

- moisturize with Stay So Fro comb out conditioner or Hollywood Beauty Olive Oil Creme. moisturize ends with LustraSilk Liquid Cholestorol Conditoner and seal with vatika oil.

-pin up in the back for daily style.

-moisturize and seal by night the same as earlier and wrap on alternate sides or pin under and wrap saran wrap around it then secure with a scarf or sleep with just a scarf.

*Washing*

~~~AS OF 5.29.08 IM GOING BACK TO SALON CARE~~~~

previously for washing on my own:

-I was co washing for a little while but it was causing hard hair in my opinion and i get less breakage without washing that often. i now plan to wash whenever i feel like it. which might be every 2 1/2 or 3 weeks.

-on wash day, i pre poo sometimes with coconut oil or dc on dry hair with the LustraSilk if my hair feels dry. wash 1x on the scalp only with whatever shampoo is in the bathroom. then dc with ors replenishing pack, Freeman's Sea Kelp or Sebastian's Penetraitt. (I also just found out we have Garnier Fructis fortifying 3 min. masque, so i may start using that.) i sit under a hooded dryer for 30-45 mins, then rinse and apply a leave in. either Aveda Elixir or Nexxus Headress. i air dry about 80% then i may blow the roots a lil bit on the lowest setting. (i had two week stint of flat ironing with Fantasia IC heat protectant and it caused breakage, i think). I'm also thinking about rollersetting from now on or drying first under the dryer cuz i think airdrying is leading to breakage and crunchy hair. *hair wooeeess*

*Relaxing*

~~~~AS OF 5.29.08 SWITCHING TO LYE ON NEXT RETOUCH DAY EVERY 6-8 WEEKS~~~

- i try to stretch about 9-10 weeks for relaxers but after using gro aut oil in march i got an inch in 6 weeks and had to relax after week 7. there was lots of hair that came out during this relaxer due to the fact that i hadn't been combing from the root. i had only been combing from the tips up, even after washes. i paid for it and now my hair is lighter and looks thinner.
- i relax with ors no-lye in the box, but want to switch to lye because its more moisturizing. im just scared to do it cuz i dont want my hair to fall out.

*Hair Today*

~~~~AS OF 5.29.08 IM AM SO CLOSE TO FULL APL BUT WAY THINNER THAN BEFORE. WILL BEGAN USING FOLICURE DAILY AS WELL AS VATIKA OIL AND GRO-AUT OIL FOR THE PATCHES IN THE BACK~~~~

-i am now apl. not fully, the sides are still a little past shoulder length. i retained my inches. but i just want to be FULL AND THICK apl (hopefully by August 08) and then i can start thinking about beyond. any help with tips, questions or suggestions are welcome. *waves* buh bye! :-)
