So, I removed my weave. And I know, I look like an ugly, big nosed, cross-eyed iguana. I'm willing to sacrifice my supposed sexy looks for the documentation of my "Hairstory". lol
This time, I didn't wash my hair. Yes, I didn't wash my hair for the whole 4 to 6 weeks I had that weave in. I was putting Sulfur 8 on my scalp. The result was my hair felt very greased. It wasn't dry, though. I got a bit of matte which is to be expected. My weave didn't seem to ever get to looking ratty. Oh, and for the first time in my life, when I was combing out the matte (with a large tooth comb), the strands were quite long. It looks thick and the end isn't split (yet)! But next time, I'll do A.C.V. rinses because I can't take an itchy scalp. Maybe that will help.
My mom wants to texlax it tomorrow and I said okay. I later realized that I only said okay because I was tired of arguing with her.
What I really wanted was to wash and deep condition tonight. Where a wig or do a roller-set for the rest of the week. Then texlax next Sunday.
Before this, I did a texturizer. Why we're changing to relaxer? Uhm... not sure. I guess once again, I was just tired of fighting with my mom about this. There is also a lot less people and a lot less information on texturizing while there is a lot of info and people doing texlax. But either way, I have been wanting to try out Just For Me(tm) Texture Softener(tm) really bad.
I'm really mad with myself. Even though I've done all this research and education about my hair, I can't seem to shake whatever inconfidence I have (and trust me... this inconfidence appears all over my life, causing me to not reach my full potentials) that allows me to still follow my mother's whims when I know she is wrong.
Oh, BTW, my temples are slowly getting better, I think? They haven't seen any chemical for 5 months and you know, I'm just never going to put a chemical on them until I can look in the mirror without my glasses and not think I'm going bald. My mom said "if you just relaxed them, they'd look good," however, I prefer health to good looks.
