problems of relaxer dayIIOne of the myths of relaxed hair is that relaxers break hair, however, I beg to differ -Relaxers do not break hair(when used the right way), it is improper care or maintenance that breaks hair.

The law of cause and effect states

“For every effect there is a definite and predictable  cause , likewise for every cause there is a definite and predictable effect.”

Hence, any of these could occur;
EFFECT
(R)RELAXER BURN
(D)Dryness
(S)Split ends
(O)Over processing

If these happens;
CAUSES
1. Relaxer left on the hair for too long
2. Previously relaxed hair is not well protected
3. Dry, ragged hair ends are not well trimmed
4. Hair is not well moisturized after the relaxer process

PREVENTION
But you dont have to bother about the above occurences (RDSO) if you do the following;

1. Protect previously relaxed hair with oil, (olive oil, etc) or leave-in conditioner
2. Avoid leaving relaxers on the hair till it starts hurting ;follow the manufacturers instruction.
3. After touch-up, trim about 1/8 inch to keep ends neat and take care of split ends.
4 . Detangle properly before relaxing the hair

GOING FORWARD
You can start by doing the following; that is, if you are not yet dong so:
1. Wash with a neutralizing shampoo after retouching, about 3-4 times to remove residue relaxer
2. Deep condition with a Conditioning protein treatment such as Organics or ORS  hair mayonnaise, a week before touch-up and immediately after.
3. Detangle  gently from tip to root with a wide- toothed comb.

In preparation for the next relaxer-day;
Read relaxing your hair the right way

Stay beautiful!
