How long should I wait to retouch my hair?
Ideally, you should be visiting your stylist for a root touch up every 4 to 6 weeks, and no later than 8 weeks. This isn’t purely because it’ll look better, but for biological reasons, too. Your scalp gives off heat, and this heat won’t extend much further than 2 centimetres past the root.
Can you relax your hair every 4 weeks?
Relaxing your hair every 4-6 weeks is simply too short of a time frame for enough new growth to appear. I stretch my relaxers at least 10-12 weeks giving me more than enough new growth for a touch up. Leaving relaxer on way too long, longer than the recommended time on your relaxer kits, is considered over-processing.
How long does a relaxer retouch take?
Apply the relaxer until every clipped area is covered. This should take no longer than 10 minutes.
How often should you retouch your perm?
Some kinds of perms, including acid perms and exothermic perms, create dramatic results that need to have their roots permed again every three months to maintain the effects. Gentler perms, including body waves and stack perms, are more subtle and can often last four or five months without needing a touch up.
Can I color my roots every 2 weeks?
How often is it safe to go for color? You shouldn’t dye your hair more frequently than every two or three weeks. The problem is when you’re going blonde you can see your dark roots after a week, but if you color your hair every week, then you will see damage.
Is root touch up bad for your hair?
When it comes to your hair’s health, most hair root concealers are actually safe to use on your hair. However, as is the case with anything else, some brands are better than others. It all goes back to the ingredients; you will find some containing drying alcohols like a dye.
How often you should relax your hair?
“I recommend anywhere from 8-10 weeks on average for touch-ups,” says Wauchope. While eight weeks between touch-ups is recommended, some may feel the need to apply relaxers more frequently.

What happens if you relax your hair too much?
Hair relaxers straighten hair by penetrating the cuticle and the cortex layers of the hair shaft to loosen the natural curl pattern. This process leaves the hair weak, brittle and prone to breakage. It can even burn your skin, cause permanent damage to the scalp and lead to hair loss.
How often should relaxed hair be washed?
Relaxed hair should be washed at least once a week, especially during warmer months when sun, chlorine and saltwater can negatively impact chemically treated locs. Invest in a shampoo with hydrating properties to help you clean, maintain and restore hydration.
How do I prepare my hair for a relaxer touch up?
How I Prepare My Hair For A Relaxer Touch-up
- Detangle. Since I stretch my relaxers I tend to have several weeks of new growth which can mean some serious tangling.
- Clarify. At least a week before my touch up I clarify my hair to start with a cleaner slate.
- Deep condition.
How long can you go without a relaxer?
When getting relaxers, it’s recommended that you wait at least twelve weeks between touch-ups; that’s about three months. By that time most people have a significant amount of new growth to minimize the chances of the relaxer over-lapping, and therefore over processing the previously relaxed strands.
Why is my perm not Curly?
The two main reasons for permed hair not being as curly as desired are, the perm rods used were too large in diameter and produced a wave rather than a curl. The other is that the perm was under processed (assuming your hair had the proper elasticity to be permed).
How many times can you perm?
The normal time period between perms is three to four months for short to medium-length hair as long as hair is trimmed or cut two or three times within this period. Your stylist can help you make this decision.
What happens if you leave perm neutralizer on too long?
Because a neutralizer can damage the hair if too much is applied or if it is left on for too long, the stylist must closely monitor the perm process. The stylist should thoroughly wash away the neutralizer to prevent any damage.
