How To Stretch Your Relaxer Past 6 Weeks (week 8)
This week officially marks two months since my last relaxer. If you have made it this far, congratulations!!!! You are one week closer to healthier hair. By week 8 you should have approximately one inch of new growth. Remember, I said before that healthy hair grows at a rate of approximately half of an inch per month. So in two months, or 8 weeks, you should have one full inch or close to it. I recommend stretching your relaxer until you get two inches of new growth to ensure that you will not have any damage from your relaxer due to over-lapping. Take a look at my hair right after I shampooed it today. I let it air dry and this is the picture right before I blow dried it.
I am right on track as far as my growth. I had an inch of new growth last week in the week 7 video.
