I am currently 8 weeks post. I usually relax at 10 weeks but I may hold off a week or two. Maintaining the moisture in my hair has been on the up and up thanks to Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie, but this darned shedding---sheesh!
 Cleanse: used co-cleanser recipe with Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Peppermint Oil, Tresemme Naturals and Organix Awapuhi Ginger Shampoo. This mix was not as moisturizing… Next time, more conditioner and just toss the Awapuhi Ginger Shampoo!
 Tea Rinse: Green Tea mixed with a few drops of peppermint oil. Adding peppermint oil is a great way to spice up your tea rinses, it really soothes your scalp.
 Deep Conditioner: I used a mixture of Hairitage Hydration Pink Grapefruit Punch Conditioner and Nexxus Humectress Conditioner. Covered my hair with a plastic cap and left it on for about 2 hours and rinsed
 Leave –Ins: Sprayed ApHogee Keratin and Green Tea Restructurizer on line of demarcation and my ends, applied Sweet Nature by Eddie Dream Cream with MSM on my scalp and Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie on my hair and sealed everything in with My Honey Child Honey Love Moisturizer (Review coming soon!)
Overall this Wash Day was pretty good. I spent most of it in the shower rather than over the sink, it made it easier to detangle. Everyone knows the further your get into your stretch the more important it is to stretch your new growth, I did this by putting my hair into 4 ponytails while air drying.
