I did my touch-up about three weeks ago one day shy of 12 weeks post. I have plans for the end of the year and I want to be able to do my last touch up for this year by the end of December plus get a good hair cut to kick off the New Year.
Unlike my previous touch up, I started by parting my hair into four sections since my new growth was not cooperating, then I parted those four sections into smaller sections and twisted it to help speed up my application time.

Other than this, my method of applying my relaxer and the products that I used stayed the same as in my April and July 2015 touch-ups. My plan was to flat iron my hair and trim my ends like I usually do after my touch-ups, unfortunately I didn’t have time.
I've had two wash days since I did my touch-up, the first one which took place last week ended in a curlformers set. I trimmed about an inch from each section as I installed the curlformers since I can’t guarantee that I will be flat ironing any time soon.
The set did not turn out as I wanted; I tried sleeping in the curlformers but couldn’t so I removed them before my hair was completely dry. Even though it took me over an hour to install the curlformers it was relatively easy once I got the hang of it, I will definitely be giving this a go again.
I did my second wash day on Sunday evening with the intention of doing a roller set that didn’t happen. That wash day ended with my hair being air dried, I didn’t have the will or patience to do a roller set. Hopefully I can give it a go on my next wash day.
How was your last touch-up?
Did you try anything new on your last washday?
