|Can my relaxed hair be healthy?|
Today is week 2 (click here for week 1) of the "Can my relaxed hair be healthy?" series and I am loving my hair. Last week for relaxer day, I did a roller set on large rollers. This week, I chose to flat iron but I used very low heat to avoid any damage to my freshly relaxed hair. In The Healthy Relaxed Hair Journal, it says not to use heat this week, however I was pressed for time so flat ironing was a better option for me. I had the heat on 376 degrees Fahrenheit which is not hot at all. Also, my hair is healthy so it is strong enough for a low heat option this week. If your relaxed hair is not as healthy as you would like it to be, don't use heat on the second week of your stretch. Once you get your hair journal, each week it gives you my professional recommendation on what style you should choose for the week. The great thing about week 2 is that the hair is still straight so you really can't go wrong with your style of choice.

This week I shampooed my hair twice, conditioned my hair from the roots to the ends, then towel dried and applied the leave in conditioner. After that, I blow dried my hair about 90%, then let air dry the rest of the way. After my hair was completely dry, I then flat ironed it.

At night, all I have to do is wrap it up and put on a satin scarf! I love to wear my hair like this because I do not have to sleep cute. I can simply put my satin scarf on and sleep upside down if I wanted to and still have my hair looking nice the next day!
