I relaxed yesterday a couple days shy of 11 weeks post, because I tore so much hair out that morning while trying to get it into a manageable state with the blow dryer. Believe me when I say that I wanted to cry when I saw how much hair I lost for the second time in one week. While at work I decided that it wasn't worth the wait so I went ahead and relaxed it when I got off work.
Half way through my scalp started to burn so it involuntarily turned into the half and half method. I have no idea how so many ladies mastered this technique because the middle of my scalp got burned really badly because it got wet when I washed the relaxer out. Worst relaxer experience in my two years of relaxing in terms of burns :(...
Anyway, my hair is still at armpit length because I broke so much hair off in the last two weeks trying to get it two behave. Le sigh the perils we go through.
I plan to visit the salon soon to get my ends trimmed because I hate how they look and feel so I'm going to lose some inches. I have no pics now, but hopefully I get to take some after my trim.
