Relaxed hair care requires a bit of time and effort, just as caring for any hair, so here are a few tips on how to maintain relaxed hair
1. GET YOUR HAIR DONE BY A PROFESSIONAL
All you need is a person who knows hair and can give you the results you want with minimum hair damage. A certified hair professional.
2. DON’T RELAX TOO OFTEN
You should wait for a minimum of 6-8 weeks before relaxing your hair, if you can take it up to 12 weeks thats great, some people relax their hair twice a year. Relaxing often causes hair to break and fall off.
3. FOLLOW UP WITH THE RIGHT PRODUCTS
Your hair is going to need more moisture and hair care products. Invest in a good leave in conditioner and moisturize it on daily basis, deep condition every week for nutured ends.
4. WASH RIGHT
Avoid over washing your hair. Don’t over-shampoo your ends as that will strip moisture off, leaving the processed bits extremely dry and prone to breakage. Most of your shampoo needs to end up on your scalp, the most of your deep conditioner needs to end up on your ends.
5. PROTECT, PROTECT, PROTECT
In order to make sure your healthy relaxed hair stays exactly that way protect it at night by either wearing a silk or satin sleeping cap or scarf plus stay away from regular rubber bands and the ones with metal parts because they will literally rip your sensitive strands causing split ends.
