I based my scalp with regular Blue Magic Hair Grease just to make sure my scalp did not get irritated
 Applied Dark and Lovely No-Lye Relaxer in regular strength. Application and smoothing time took about 25 minutes, which is longer than I would have like.
 Rinsed and applied Redken Extreme Strength Builder Plus as a mid-relaxer protein treatment and let sit for about 10 minutes. I usually have great results with this but my hair felt really… strong, kinda stiff… Well what I’m trying to say is that my hair felt kinda off after rinsing it out.
 Neutralized my hair 4 times with the shampoo provided in the kit.
 Applied Carol’s Daughter Hair Smoothie. covered my hair with a plastic cap and let it sit for about an hour and rinsed.
 For my leave-in I applied Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk, applied my oil mix to my scalp and Organix Anti-breakage serum to my ends. I let my hair air dry about 80% before blow drying on low heat.
Although I am happy with the results, this touch up was bittersweet. Honestly, I really miss my big, wild hair! I have no oomph. No volume. No nothing, it just hangs there. Even when I wore a braid out, its just not the same. I am definitely going to look into textlaxing my hair, because this bone straight thing is not for me. At. All. What I am extremely happy about is the condition of my hair and my ends. I have been on my hair journey for a year and it looks so much more healthier then when I started.
Sorry for the quality of the pictures. The first pic is before I trimmed my ends, and the second picture is after I trimmed my ends. I would say I cut about half an inch off of my hair. But its nice to see I am maintaining bra-strap length hair.
