Maxius Maxiglide !!!!

Ok, I couldn't resist anymore, I bought the Maxiglide XP from HSN! The demos were appealing, I was thinking it could assist me in prolonging my transition if I could straighten out my hair that easily and just use protective styling until the next wash day some of the time. Today is my off day so today is Maxiglide Day!!
I meant to prepoo overnight, but I was too tired after getting off at midnight. So I got up this morning here's what I did:
  1. Applied MT to scalp first independently.
  2. Then combined almond oil, Giovanni Smooth as silk deep conditioner, rosemary & cedar wood essential oils, applied to hair and put on my on heat cap for 30 minutes.
  3. Shampooed with Giovanni 50/50.
  4. Oil rinsed with a mix of EVOO, almond oil, Jamaican Mango & Lime Island Oil, rinsed with warm water.
  5. Applied a mix of conditioners Ojon hydrating conditioner & Matrix...... and put on heat cap for 30 minutes.
  6. Rinsed with cool water. Applied Mizani ThermaStrength Serum as a leave-in & sealed with Castor oil.
  7. Sectioned & detangled. Did large 2 strands twists for drying purposes since Maxiglide is done on dry hair :/
  8. Sit under dryer 1 hour.
  9. Maxiglide hair in sections as directed. I was able to do half of head in 20 minutes, which is pretty good in my opinion for the first time ever trying this( I have never flat ironed before even when relaxed). Completed my entire head, touched up spots which I kind of missed.
  10. This is A GOOD THING!!! I think I will definitely have more styling options with my transition now. I plan to just wear a bun for work in the morning and play with my hair more after work!!!
  11. This got my hair nice and straight from the roots down!!! However by midnight the next evening, my hair started it was humidity BUT THERE WASN'T ANY :(

So want to cut my hair!

I so want to cut off my relaxed ends! I don't know how people make it 1 to 2 years transitioning....I guess they are just more patient than me. I tend to be frustrated when manipulating the 2 textures; independently I have no problem with either of them but combined is another story. Anyway just venting!
