Hair Cycle
I relax my new growth every 16-18 weeks, Here is the summary of my hair regimen cycle and schedule.

Hair Style
I wear my hair in a bun or ponytail  80% of the time. I usually wear my hair straight for the first 2 weeks after relaxing, and in heatless styles for the next 6-8 weeks. By the 5th week, the new growth are about an inch when stretched, so I rely heavily on protective styles (buns), deep conditioners and spritz mix to tame the roots.

Hair Type
My hair type is  3c/4a  or the ‘O’ using the LOIS system. A fellow blogger, Journey to Waist Length has the exact same curl pattern as i do. As I barely use heat and a quarter of my hair is texlaxed, my roots tend to form tight curls, causing significant shrinkage.

Length Check?
I will be doing length checks from time to time, but note that my goal is the health of the hair, not the length.


Below are the products that I use. The ones that are striked are no longer in use, but i still recommend. The list is extensive, so please do not go out and purchase all these products as they were  acquired over time, starting in August 2013 and I have never spent more than $40/month (avg. $20) on products.
