Relaxer Update

I relaxed my hair last weekend with ORS Professional Line. I used the half and half method and basically did everything I did in my last relaxer update. Just a quick run through of the steps.

  1. Parted my hair straight down the middle into two halves. Added clips on one half to keep hair separated.
  2. Sectioned my hair in 1 inch horizontal parts and based my scalp with Vaseline. 
  3. Covered on half with 2 plastic caps.
  4. Applied relaxer to each section of new growth only
  5. Applied/smoothed for 15 mins.
  6. Rinsed with warm water and did a mid-step protein treatment with Aphoghee 2 Minute Reconstructor.
  7. Rinsed out protein treatment and neutralized 3x.
  8. Repeated steps 4-7 on the second half.
  9. Deep conditioned with Optimum Care's Repair Masque with heat for 30 mins with my hooded dryer. I ended up falling asleep with this on for about another 2 hours.
  10. Rinsed with warm water and t-shirt dried for about 15 mins.
  11. Added Aphoghee Keratin and Green Tea Reconstructor as a leave in.
I had every intention of roller-setting my hair, but I was too lazy tired so I just bunned. Truthfully I was feeling sick so I didn't want to even take on that challenge. All week I have been bunning. Boring!!! I wanted to roller-set today, but I just have not been up to doing my hair! I really do plan on getting out of this lazy spell soon. Work is just kicking my butt!!! I love my job, but being a bedside nurse in a hospital setting is hard work. I will probably wash my hair in the morning so be on the lookout for a wash day post. Sorry I have no pics. I really have been too lazy busy to take any. I will try to make up for it in my next post. Also review on the Optimum Care Hair Masque will be posted soon. I want to use it a few more times so I can give a through review. I will say that so far I really like it. I love the way it makes my scalp tingle and I also love the smell. 


  1. Can't wait to see pics. I am debating on rollersetting my hair today or tomorrow myself...I have wanted to re-visit the ponytail rollerset forEVER but just haven't gotten around to it.

  2. Was really looking forward to pics.

    1. I know. I plan to rollerset Tue or Wed so I will have some pics then. I'll try to write and publish by Friday.

  3. I can relate on not feeling up to roller setting. I try to squeeze it in when I can.

    Also, You have been nominated because you have a darling blog!
