I recently relaxed so I decided I would do a VERY quick update displaying my current hair health, length, and share my relaxer process, etc. Not to mention thoughts on going natural and the relaxed hair community!! I relaxed at 12 weeks post relaxer. I always use ORS Olive Oil Lye Relaxer (Normal Strength) on relaxer day. I follow up with the ORS Olive Oil Neutralizing Shampoo and then deep condition with the ORS Olive Oil Replenishing Conditioner – my staples!! I typically dust/trim my ends with every relaxer (basically every 3 months) by going to my local stylist. I’m currently 3 months postpartum and I haven’t noticed any adverse affects on my hair i.e. shedding, breakage etc.
