New Plan/ Sew-In Regimen

I was having a conversation with my sister last night about how I retained so much length and had better progress in the beginning of my hair journey. And when I think of it I used to wear a sew-in back in the beginning of my journey. It makes so much more sense. It meant less manipulation. So in the attempt to stop myself from messing with my hair so often I am going back to the sew-in. Maybe this will help me get to Brastrap length with ease.

Here's my new sew-in regimen:

  • Take out and reinstall sew-in every 2-4 weeks.
  • Moisturize daily with Hollywood Beauty Olive Creme
  • Spray scalp with Aloe Vera juice daily
  • Continue to take my vitamins as normal
  • No relaxer for the rest of the year
Because I'm so excited about this new regimen, I'm going to install it tonight. The sooner the better of course. I washed and clarified my hair and scalp last night. The only thing I didn't get to do was a deep condition. So I definitely need to keep the moisture up for the next 4 weeks. I'm going to be using the Yaki texture hair by Enstyle. It only cost like $7.99 for a 1o". So it's definitely cost efficient. Plus I'm cheap and I just can't bring myself to pay alot of money for something that's only going to last me 4 weeks...lol...Anyways I will definitely post the finished results when I'm done installing it.

Hair Update: BSB

Here's my update...sorry it took so long. I took these 2 weeks ago and I've been too lazy to post them...lol! Anyways for the last relaxer I stretched for 10 weeks. I don't believe I'll do that again. I'm going to stick to 7-8 week stretches for now. Anyways I believe I made a bit of progress in the length department, but in the thickness department I soooo lost. I even suffered breakage in the front. I'm thinking it has something to do with the barrettes I was using to secure my ponytails. Also I've been very bad with the flat iron. I've flat ironed about 4 times in 2 weeks. :( So now I vow to flat iron at the end of the year instead. I'm giving it a break for the rest of the year.

Here are my progress pics: (Click to enlarge)
