My regi becomes rather boring during the days when I’m relaxer stretching, experiencing breakage or hair dryness. Right now my hair is experiencing all three. 👿 I simply do not like experimenting during these times so I tend to reach for products that are tried and true. Therefore, much of this week’s regi will sound quite familiar.
I’m unsure if my current hair struggles are an indication that I need a protein treatment, I need to end my relaxer stretch, or perhaps both. Process of elimination resulted in me doing a protein treatment to see how my hair would respond. My hair is very protein sensitive so I don’t protein treat often. I average protein use every 4-6 weeks. I cannot recall the last time I did a protein treatment so clearly, it’s time. My hair doesn’t seem to take exception to Ion Effective Care and Aubrey Organics GPB.

(I won’t bore you with pics since you’ve seen these products numerous times)
My hair felt stronger and healthier this wash day. I haven’t felt this feeling in quite sometime. Perhaps a protein treatment is what my hair needed. I will continue to monitor performance over the next few days to determine when to end my stretch. Currently, I’m considering the week of 2 Dec.
How was your recent wash day?
