I've never retouched earlier than 2 months, I typically do it at 3 months this time around Im almost 4 months post (almost 2 inch regrowth) I'm aiming to self lax at weekend. 6 weeks is a lot. I don't want the chemicals in my hair that often I put up with thick forest as it gives me some body in my hair.I’m only 6 weeks out but I’m getting a touch up on Thursday smh. Plus color. I need the color more than I need a perm but I definitely have enough new growth. I went 12 weeks during quarantine and never again. Grateful I have an awesome stylist who knows what he’s doing. (He’s been doing my hair for 17 years...most of his customers are at minimum BSL. Alot are MBL and longer) Six weeks is about all I can handle, 7 weeks TOPS. I’m going to try and wear my hair down more often but I’m going through menopause and it’s a little past BSL and it’s just too hot! Now I see why menopausal women cut their hair.
I'm not one to flat iron I don't see the point in relaxing then ironing it everyday unless I M going out for the evening, that's what the chemicals are for.
