Relaxer Results

Hi again chicas,

Ok so I just got back from the salon. All I can say is that this experience has solidified the decision I have made to completely leave all salons and all hairdressers out of my life.

The end result of my hair was good but i really wish she didn't handle my hair how she did.

Let me first say I really did tell her what I wanted done to my hair before she started. She only ended up complaining about the castor oil on my scalp and not following most of the stuff I asked for. She didn't detangle my hair how I wanted her to, she smoothed the relaxer to my ends because she wanted to get my natural ends processed and she ended up trimming my ends.

The only good thing that she did was that she restored the ph balance to my hair with a product similar to Roux Porosity. Its from the Optimum line for Soft Sheen Carson.

I won't be too mad at the trim because at least I know my ends are ok, so I won't be trimming for a while, only dusting.

I can however say that while I may not have length that I wanted, I do have the thickness that I have been missing/craving.

Here are some comparison pics for now...I'll post better pics in a day or two.

This is my everyday style

I love your thickness!

I completely understand how you feel about how the stylist treated her hair - this was a complaint of mine when I went to my stylist for touch ups.

Thank you! :D

Nobody can convince me to go to a salon again...i just need to invest in a hair dryer.

I second that! You are your hair's best stylist. No one knows your hair better than you. Your hair is so lush & thick. Looking at your hair makes me want to color mine black again! Sidenote: I love the top knot in the 1st pic. :-)
