Reader’s Q & A

Q: Should I use an activator when I Texlax?
A: Yes, you should. The reason why you’re texlaxing is a preference for under processed hair. To achieve results, it’s essential you divide your hair in tiny sections and coat each section with Jamaican Black Castor Oil & Vaseline. I often start with my ends then work my way towards my new growth as well, so I can get the kind of result I want. I’m usually heavy handed when applying the castor oil and Vaseline. Once you’ve coated your previously relaxed hair, over-processing won’t occur. Also ensure you apply Vaseline to your scalp.

Q: How should I apply peppermint oil to my scalp directly?
A: Applying essential oil directly to your scalp is a big no-no. Unless you’re ready to see your hair coming out in clumps, you’d better not go down this route. Essential oils are potent and moderation is the key when using it. If you’d prefer to use this oil as a potent growth aid, get an applicator bottle, pour in Jamaican Black Castor Oil / Jojoba Oil till it’s halfway. Pour in 4 caps of peppermint oil and shake the bottle. To ensure the oils blend together, keep the bottle in the darkest part of your wardrobe for a week.

I’ve been having my fill of hair porn, walking up to strangers and asking about their hair regimen. I recently learnt about the trimming regimen and I’ve booked an appointment on Wednesday with the creator of this regimen. I’m going in for a relaxer touch up, deep condition, blowdry, trim and style. It’s really insightful and I just hope Steveid allows me to record our discussions for your viewing pleasure.
Have a fun filled week ahead.
