Natural hair chit chat & Confession

RELAXED MY EDGES!!!

I know, I know, I betrayed my natural hair sisters and I feel bad but...... I feel good about it too lol.
I spent the day relaxing my mum's hair and after seeing there was some relaxer cream left over, an idea popped into my head and I knew at one point in my life I had come across a natural hair female relaxing her edges on YouTube.

I can't even lie, I was so nervous. I currently have braids in and my edges were looking a hot mess. I had also run out of my favourite edge control buy Dr. Miracle and that was enough reason to make me relax my edges. I left it on for less than 10 mins and I was panicking the whole time! I went from telling my mum I can't believe she has all these chemicals on her hair to "oooh. I want my edges laid too".

Those long minutes passes and I just had to wash it ASAP. At this point I didn't even care if my edges weren't relaxed. I just wanted it out. All I can say is that the entire process of relaxing my edges was an emotional roller coaster. I finally shampooed my edges and looked up and y'all!!! The smile on my face was enormous! My edges were LAID and I had no product in them.

Now all I do to get my edges on fleek is by dipping my toothbrush (YES. Toothbrush specifically for laying edges) into my Morgan's pomade and slicking it down instead of the long process of using my edge control and leaving my silk scarf on for about 10 mins while I do my make-up.

One thing I've noticed however, is that the colour of my edges look lighter compared to the rest of my hair which kinda sucks. I guess the chemicals were a bit harsh on my hair colour. It doesn't bother me a lot but I still hate that I noticed it. Honestly, I would probably do it again because I mean, who doesn't want their 4C edges to be laid 24/7? I know I do.

Love,
Rie.
