Pre-pooed with L’Oreal Total Repair 5 Restoring Conditioner to help loosen the curls. I applied the conditioner to dry hair (in sections) and sat under my steamer for 15 minutes.
 I finished up by applying EcoStyler Gel to my edges and wrapped my hair up with a silk scarf while it air dried overnight.
As much as I loved last week’s flexi rod set (and was tempted to do another) I’ve learned that keeping things as simple as possible works best for my hair so for this wash day (and week) I went back to rocking my usual ponytail or bun. Unfortunately I didn’t have much patience to take my time when tension drying like I normally so my hair wasn’t as sleek as it normally is (you can tell by the texture of my bun above) but oh well, didn’t bother me.
I’m 13 months post relaxer y’all! Time is flying and it trips me out every day because I never thought I’d make it here… well not for another couple of years at least. And I never thought I’d be able to transition this long without big chopping out of frustration. Keeping. My. Hair. Stretched. Is. Key! I have nearly zero patience for annoying tangles (which is why I limited my relaxer stretches to max 16 weeks in the past)… here’s to hopping my current methods keep putting up a ‘no vacancy’ sign for all tangles until this transition ends!
