It's A Jungle In Here

Wow i'm 10-1/2 weeks post and believe me, it's a jungle in here. I truly have an afro thing going on under the relaxed parts, lol. The shrinkage just amazes me, my bsl hair is now apl due to the shrinkage. The good thing about this stretch is that i am not shedding like it usually does at this time. Usually at 9 weeks i start to have a lot of shedding and i thought because i am underprocessed that this stretch would be hard. I think this time it's easier because of the homemade garlic conditioner i used 3 times stopped the shedding in it's tracks (the garlic conditioner is now one of my staples). I want to continue to stretch, but i think i won't press my luck. I will relax in 9 days. I can't wait!!! My last stretch was for 14 weeks and the shedding was out of control, anyway, i will try to relax bone straight this time, to see if it is better than texlaxing for my fine hair, cause my texlaxed hair tangles like crazy. If i like the way my hair behaves being bone straight, i will stick to it. If my hair act the fool, i'll go back to texlaxed. It's about learning what your hair likes. I'll keep yall updated :o)

Texlaxing And Stretching

What is texlaxing?
Is when you leave a relaxer on your hair for only a short period of time to loosen the curl pattern according to hairs texture. Fine hair needs less processing time than coarser hair texture.

What is stretching?
Is when you stretch the amount of time between relaxers. Most hairdresser would like touch ups to be done at 6-8 weeks post. I believe in stretching for a least 12 weeks minimum. I try to stretch as long as my hair allows me to.

I am 10 weeks post. I usually stretch for 12 weeks, but it seems lately that stretching gets really hard after 9 weeks post. I am also texlaxed which is most likely the reason stretching to 12 weeks is so hard. I thought it would be a good idea to texlax and stretch, but now i'm rethinking that idea. My fine hair gets so tangled and i thinking texlaxed hair and stretching is not a good combination.
I'm thinking about going back to bone straight,but continuing to stretch my relaxers. Hmmm, i will keep yall updated
