4. Avoid frequent touch ups (perm)
I advise these women to avoid frequent touch ups- no more than once every 8-12 weeks. I stopped relaxing my hair years ago after researching the harmful effects of relaxers. If you’ve seen the movie “Good Hair,” you know what I’m talking about. I take it upon myself to educate many black women about the harmful effects of relaxers because I’ve seen countless patients need medical treatment for hair issues that are a direct result of relaxers. I’m pro-natural hair, but a woman’s decision to relax her hair is her choice- and I respect that.
