For a while now, all the hype has been about natural hair; how to grow one, how to care for it and all. Lets take a break from that and talk about relaxed hair.
Relaxed hair is just as important as natural hair and you need to know how to handle it and have it at its healthiest. Your relaxed hair needs as much care and attention as natural hair because irrespective of texture or treatment, it is still YOUR hair.
To make the most of your hair when it is relaxed, there are 5 important things you should never do.
1. Never relax your hair yourself
It is never advisable to do your own retouching by yourself. Even if you are a professional hairdresser, going to the salon to get it done ensures that you do not damage your hair unknowingly. Relaxers contain harmful chemicals that needs attention when being used. Using relaxers on your hair by yourself will gradually cause damage to it as you can’t see what is going while applying it.
