Yes, yes, yes. The length check... I plan to do a length check before February. Why? I'm playing around with a new growth aid which I plan to post the recipe for if all goes well.

Wish me luck ladies!

Why is this? Every since I've been streching my relaxer (between 16 and 20 weeks) my relaxers no longer take. I keep them in the recommended time and smooth it just the same and do everything I'm supposed to do, but they don't take. I rinse my hair and its still curly/wavy only now it's dry and brittle as well. (I'm using ORS Lye). I'm so confused! I was trying to not have to go to a stylist but maybe I should just go to a pro in a few months. What do you think is going on?

Self-Relaxing can be hard because you can't really see all the new growth in the back. You can either add some oil to cut down the processing time and use a applicator brush OR you can see a professional. It's up to you. :)
