The other option, Relaxedtresses, is to just switch to Just4me texturizer and go that way instead of completely straight
You said the partially processed hair was the strongest and longest you have. I don't know how you feel about switching to texlax or something in between tex lax and completely straight. But that would be very advantageous since we are trying to grow out the hair. Relaxing with a very mild and leaving some wave in the hair does leave the hair stronger so if you do accidentally ovelap, it wont cause your hair to fall out.
When you do this you don't use less product. Make sure you use a lot of product so it wont turn out spotty like it did last time.... Just use ample amounts of a weaker product like Just4Me texturizer or a Mild Relaxer for a slightly shorter period of time. You could also coat the hair with something like oil or conditioner before application. This would also result in less straightening. You will just have to do some sort of a wet set on large rollers to smooth the hair out the rest of the way.(maybe even a wrap under a hooded dryer)
That might be a really good option Relaxedtresses... Kind of the best of all worlds. You get the benefits of a relaxer to make your hair easier to detangle, style etc without it being so fragile if you go with a very mild relaxer or texturizer.
Which way do you think would work best for you? Do you think you want to try doing a slightly less straightened touch up this time when you touch up those wavy spots? What strength ORS are you using now? You could just go down from Regular to Mild for example if you want to try this but still touch up the underprocessed areas. If you already use mild, you would coat your hair with some oil first as a buffer and reduce the processing time.... or just switch to just4me.
I disagree with the girl in the last video about not using a lot of product. That is a good way to end up with the result you have. I say thoroughly coat the hair with ample relaxer, just take it off a little sooner and it wont be spotty.
