And she had gorgeous curls upon her head

Well except I don't.  If I'm being perfectly honest I'm glad there is still hair on my head.  Ulta is the only salon that has my preferred Affirm Fibre Guard relaxer.  And I had found a great hairdresser that I trusted to do it.  When I went in for a random styling I found out that she was gone and likely would not be back.  Turns out most of the staff has bolted from Ulta.  I know that kind of thing happens but seriously my hair and patience were at an end so I had to trust a new girl with the process.  Issue #1 came with them having my relaxer but nothing else to take care of it.  None of the other components were there so I had to go with Mizani which my hair fights like it's a robber trying to steal something from an old lady.  Even leaving it on much longer than intended there was still a bit of texture that I wasn't wanting as I do like my hair BONE straight post relaxer.  She did listen to me about that part though and was pliable if that is the right word.  She clearly hadn't done very many relaxers and was even more out of sorts when it came to the blow out and flat iron process which to me seems like a no brainer.  I coached her threw that and left satisfied if not bone straight.

After the last relaxer did kind of the same thing cause she was rushing I am feeling more texlaxed than anything else.  My hair fully on my shoulders but does need to be evened out some more so that's the plan for the next few months.  I am pretty sure that after swim classes end I'm going to shoot for some braids so I can work out without it being stress on my hair trying to style and put up out of the sweat.  I'm still uneasy about swimming in braids but want to check with a few people to make sure I'm not freaking out unnecessarily. I refuse to let my growing and graying hair slow down the fitness train.  More on that in the next post.  How was your last wash day?
