I’m Jay, a dope southern girl with a passion for hair and beauty.
I started Relaxed Thairapy in 2013 to help women achieve healthier hair, after becoming a DIYer and successfully growing my type 4 hair to waist length.
My Hair Story
I’ve always taken pride in my hair and kept it well maintained even when I was salon dependent. I was forced to become a do it yourselfer after my husband was diagnosed with cancer. At that moment, life stopped. I did not have time nor the desire to enjoy the salon experience. My hair started breaking and broke badly. It wasn’t until he was well on his way to recovery did I even think about my hair. I eventually would look in the mirror and knew I needed a change. I Googled hair topics and came across many articles, forums, products and recommendations. I quickly fell in love with all things hair and my passion grew from there.
A Few Notable Hair Accomplishments:
- Repaired thinning edges by scalp massaging and revising my hairstyle choices.
- Grew my hair from arm pit length to waist length within 1 yr and 6 months.
- Stretched relaxer for two years without damage or setback.
- Long term transitioning from relaxed hair to natural hair without big chop.
