I finally did my relaxer touch up !!!
Today i finally did my relaxer touch up after 15 weeks post. It's not that i wanted to stretch that long (i usually stretch 3 months) but the condition of my hair was not right for relaxing and for some reason i was itching and scratching like crazy. As you may know i wanted to switch relaxers, i was using silk elements mild. I finally decided to switch to ORS lye relaxer. I heard so many good things about this relaxer and from fine haired sistas, so i figured this is the relaxer to switch to, the silk elements had started to underprocess my hair that's why i wanted to switch. Well after not being able to comb my hair or wait one more day, i just went for it today. Okay, i know that most people who used ORS relaxer had great results on fine hair, well let me tell you, from the minute i put the relaxer on my head it started burning, i was like what? so of course i had to rush and get it off. Needless to say i am texlaxed again and underprocessed in some areas. So maybe i'll do a corrective if it is too bad after my wash, but i would like to go at least 2 months without having to do the corrective. Even though i am underprocessed in some areas and texlaxed again, the relaxer actually left my hair soft and in good condition. I think maybe my scalp was just so irritated that's why i was burning. I will use this relaxer again, even though i didn't get my hair as straight as i liked, it feels soft and no breakage and doesn't feel as thin like other relaxers leave my hair, so i give it 4 stars !!!!
