8 Weeks Post

Okay so I am 8 weeks post and I can't wait until my relaxer in a few weeks...Yay! I have decided to relax between Oct. 15th-Oct23th. I will either be 10 or 11 weeks depending on which day I choose. This stretch has been good, but I am anxious to see if I am APL (arm pit length). It appears that I am very close but I don't know if I'm there yet...we'll see. In the meantime, I am washing and deep conditioning a few times a week and just staying on my grind in general. I have also been sealing with my beloved castor oil. I have only been combing in the shower under the shower head using my Conair comb (it looks just like the Jilbere shower comb). I literally lose 0-2 hairs doing this. I'm serious. So for anyone who's looking to lose less hair while stretching your relaxer try this method. It works for me. Here's a pic of my new growth...sorry so bright.
