The difference between this stretch and my previous stretches is manipulating my hair less, protective styling and stretching my relaxer. Before I did all of this I cut my hair because the ends were terrible. I couldn't believe how much split ends I had. It was easy going the 1st two months but adding in wigs made stretching a breeze. It was a long day for wash days because I tried my best to detangle and cause less breakage. Breakage is at the center of my hair's improvement. I believe Olaplex has helped my hair to break less and therefore helping me to retain alot of length. As for wigs, my main concern was traction alopecia so I made sure to add oils to my scalp, edges, and nape. Usually, my edges would thin out and look almost bald. GS by Sadora has helped my edges to grow out tremendously and my nape, I could not believe how much length I have grown. I can't wait to try this method for a 2nd time in order to help me grow my hair longer and keep it healthy.
So for the past few months, I incorporated new products to help my hair be stronger and be easily managed. Olaplex has decreased the breakage in my hair especially when I went forwards 3 months post relaxer. My hair was fairly easy to maintain and flat ironed results was very shiny and sleek. GS hair growth oil has helped me to grow out my edges and prevent traction alopecia. This was something I feared due to my exposure to wearing wigs for almost 8hrs a day. I didn't want my edges to thin out or become damaged. I was able to retain a lot of new growth and my edges grew out without breakage. Wearing wigs help me to have less manipulated in my hair which helped with breakage. I had a lot of new growth, but keeping it moisturized was my main focus. I washed my hair once a month and braided up for wig application. Olaplex has changed my hair for the better and I'm glad to say this is a staple for every wash day.
