Relaxers & Healthier Alternatives 

Relaxers should be stretched out for as long as possible. When you stretch out your relaxers it gives your hair enough down time to recover from losing elasticity, strength, and pH balance. Another advant

age of stretching out your relaxer will be the visual aspect. When you stretch out your relaxer you will be able to clearly see your “line of demarcation” that is where your natural roots stops and relaxed hair begins. 

Being able to see your roots will allow you to have enough room to apply the relaxer onto your natural hair without possibly over processing your hair by overlapping the relaxer onto your previously processed hair. Typically women touch up their roots every 6-8 weeks however, its better to retouch your hair every 12- 16 weeks to avoid damage or breakage.
