(1) Did a hot oil treatment (“HOT”) with Jason Vitamin E Oil which in also contains sunflower oil, safflower oil (added extra safflower oil that I have on hand), rice bran oil, sweet almond oil, apricot oil, avocado oil, and wheat germ oil. Sat under my heating cap for an hour. I’ve had the Jason’s vit E oil for a while but completely forgot about it. I spotted it while organizing my oils this morning so I decided to use it yesterday.
(2) Clarified by shampooing with Redken Hair Cleansing Cream Shampoo. Read more about the benefits of clarifying here.
(3) Did a black tea rinse.
(4) Applied Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Daily Treatment for 5 minutes.
(5) Deep conditioned using my steamer with KeraPRO Restorative Treatment. My hair felt thoroughly moisturized after I rinsed out the conditioner.
(6) Applied leave in conditioner (Darcy’s Botanicals Daily Leave-In Conditioner), serum (Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum) and sprayed a little ApHogee Green Tea & Keratin.

(7) Detangled and roller set my hair using Diane 1.5″ mesh rollers. I must admit, I miss doing roller sets… but it sure is a workout to stretch and set my crown. My arms were buuuuurnnning #timetohitthegym. Also, you can really see the diff between my texlaxed hair and bone straight hair when it’s wet in the picture to the right. Seeing the difference makes me excited for when I’m fully texlaxed and have uniform thickness!
(8) Once my hair was dry, I removed the rollers and applied a tiny amount of Organix Macadamia Dry Styling Oil to my hands and finger combed out the curls.

You can watch the video of my first mesh roller set results here and read the post here. I purchased my rollers on Amazon, they can be found here. I use end wrap papers when using mesh rollers to prevent my hair from drying with indentations from the rollers.

After taking out the rollers:
The rollers really helped stretch and flatten my new growth.

Happy Monday!


  1. Hello Jeni…why did you use the hot oil treatment before using the clarifying shampoo?

      Hi there, doing a hot oil treatment provides a layer of protection when shampooing so that the hair isn't stripped too much.

  2. wooowww. My mouth literally dropped open at those curls! lol great job Jeni

  3. Beautiful results Jen.. I don't know how you manage to set all your hair at that length.. I would be strugglin'


  4. Beautiful results!!! When I rollerset my hair (wig) it comes out great but those dents in the hair drive me crazy! I will definitely try the end papers next time.

      I have a post planned for your question, I'm not brushing you off! I've received similar questions for others and it will be easier to do a central post.
