Relaxer Update

I finally had a relaxer this past Saturday.  I went to the same salon and used the same stylist I have used for some time now.  She applied Mizani Butter Base Scalp Protector to my scalp including my hairline and the tips of my ears.  She then applied Organic Root Stimulator (no lye, regular strength) […]
