Growing with a Relaxer
While the chemicals in a relaxer put the hair at greater risk of damage, with the proper regime you can still have long, straightened hair. Before applying a relaxer protect use a scalp protector on our scalp and hair shaft, shielding your locks from some of the affect of the chemicals. Only put the perm or relaxer on your roots so you don’t overprocess the rest of your hair. After you’ve applied don’t do anything reckless like let sit in silence while your scalp burns. Your edges might be smoother than you imagined if your hair falls out. Use a neutralizing shampoo to remove the relaxer. Some suggest letting the neutralzing shampoo sit on your scalp for ten minutes before moisturizing and styling.
