Relaxer Day and First Length Check of 2013!

Happy Monday lovelies!

This past weekend, I finally got my hair relaxed after 16 weeks of stretching!! And let me tell you it felt good! However, this relaxer day was different than my previous relaxer days. This go 'round, I decided to go to a salon to get my hair relaxed. I really did not feel like doing my own relaxer. I mean really and truly so I went on the hunt for a good stylist in Bham. One thing that grates my nerves about Birmingham, it is how difficult it is to find a stylist that is a) professional (no double and triple booking appointments, please) and b) cares about the health of my hair. It is definitely a struggle here. Fortunately, during an exhaustive Google search, I happened upon Latoya Jones, a stylist who works at The Look Salon in Hoover ( don't worry, I will be doing a review of my experience in a future post). I was impressed by the fact that she is definitely into healthy hair practices (I mean, she has her own hair blog as well as an e-book of healthy hair care practices. How awesome is that!?) and decided to give her a shot.

Latoya relaxed my hair using Mizani Butter Blends (which is my absolute fave!),did an excellent job with application (none of that relaxing from root to tip for a touch up or leaving the relaxer on too long), and styling. Overall, it was a great experience for me.

In terms of my length, I am pretty much at BSL. The series of trims I had during 2012 left my hair roughly at BSL--maybe a tad shorter than that (and my last trim was in November). So now, I think my hair is growing back to where it used to be. Either way, I'm still aiming to hit MBL (hopefully!) sometime this year. Anyway, enough with the chatter.

Check out my relaxer results below:

    Fantastic results! I am so happy you found a wonderful stylist near you. I'm in the Atlanta area and I actually drive about an hour away to beautician (yes, she's a beautician)when I don't feel like applying my relaxer. I don't have to worry about her over processing my hair and she enjoys roller setting.

    And shout out to Hoover, AL home of one of the baddest HS football programs in the land!
