fiberguard is the relaxer i want to switch to, see why

Sunday is wash day

Today is my wash day. I don't use shampoo, only conditioner.
I co-washed with tresseme mixed olive oil and a left over dominican conditioner
I'm not to sure about the tresseme, but the dominican conditioner was pretty good.
I used it when i was stretching and it softened the new growth enough that i could at least
comb my hair.
Right now i am about 11 days post, but because i am underprocessed in the middle of my head,
it's already hard to comb. I don't know how i'm gonna make it 2 1/2 more months.
I apply my conditioner by parting from the nape applying conditioner until i get to the top
of my head, something like when applying a touchup, this way i always make sure all my
hair is covered with conditioner.
Then i sit under a heat cap for 45 minutes, or 1 hour with a plastic cap and a towel if not using heat.
I then rinse the conditioner out in the shower,
towel dry,
add my oil (olive oil, coconut oil, alma oil, castor oil or whatever oil i feel like using for this shampoo or a combination of oils, but i must alway use an oil, because my hair is very dry)
then i air dry,
twist my hair up and pin it up.
I will wear a wig or braids or weave for the winter.

Texlax touch up

Okay Girls,
So i did a touch-up on Oct. 16, 2008
I did my usual texlax, but this time it did not turn out the way it usually does.
It is so underprocessed right now and i just don't know whether to do a corrective
relaxer or just leave it alone. It really is not breaking, because i have so much oil on it,
i could probably fry a chicken. It did grow about 1 1/2 inch, after stretching 4 months.
That's not alot of growth, but i'll take what i can get. I am hoping for better results next
touchup. I will try to stretch for 3 months, which is what i usually do anyway, but let's
see, being that i am unprocessed.
