Every now and then I break the rules. This time I am forced to relax my hair at 7 weeks post. This is a shot of my new growth at 6 weeks post. My next texlaxer will be done next week Saturday.
I would like to relax every 10 to 12 weeks but sometimes my new growth makes it difficult to keep to this goal. I must say that I have noticed a tremendous growth spurt since my last relaxer. The only new thing I have added to my regimen is peppermint oil. I mix about 2 teaspoons into my conditioner and oil mix. It tingles while I am deep conditioning and also while I am rinsing. Could it be that this tingling is improving circulation in my scalp and therefore encouraging growth?
I also plan to start posting length checks from this next texlaxer. I stopped taking length check photos as I was always tempted to cut my hair into a blunt shape and because of this my length has not changed in the past year. However, I have vowed not to cut until at least December 2013.
