|2 ORS relaxer kits and the contents|
This time I completely forgot to base my scalp and my edges (I know!). My sister started in the middle with the extra strength relaxer as the middle of my hair is the most resistant. Once that one was finished, she used about half of the normal strength relaxer on the remainder of my hair. The application and smoothing process took about 45 minutes (I'm trying to do it quicker, but haven't figured it out yet!). I didn't feel any burning. She was really great at avoiding touching my scalp with the relaxer. I then shampooed about 4 times with the Olive Oil Creamy Aloe Shampoo that comes with the kit and towel dried my hair.

Finally I rinsed and roller set my hair using the ORS wrap set mousse from a spray bottle. The application took about 1 hour and I sat under the hooded dryer for about 1hr 20 minutes. Once my hair was dry I applied the ORS moisturiser and sealed with Olive Oil, wrapped my hair and went to bed. It was a super duper long night, but I love the final product. I love the results that roller setting gives my hair, it feels soft and smooth and has body and volume. Love it!!
I went to the hair dressers a week later for the first time in my hair journey and for the first time in about 4 years. It felt so great to have my hair done professionally, and I think I will be doing it more often. She did a fabulous job on my hair and was super quick. So I have a few pictures of my hair to so you can see what the colour looked like before and after. On the left is a pic of my hair wet, after I relaxed it, and on the right is the way the hairdresser did it.
