How long should you wait to get a touch up 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.
How many months does it take for relaxed hair to go natural?
Whether you decide to do a big chop or gradually grow out a relaxer, it’s going to take at least three to four months to start to see real change. For some, it may be a full year before you’re completely chemical-free.
Why is my hair not relaxed?
Causes of Under-Processed Hair Using a weaker relaxer for your hair type. Rinsing your relaxer out way too early. Not smoothing the relaxer through your new growth. Coating your hair with too much product before you relax.
How long can you go without a relaxer?
“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 twice?
If a relaxer is left on too long or your hair is relaxed too soon after a color or chemical service, over-processing can occur. This can cause permanent damage, breakage and hair loss. Over-processing can also occur if your hair isn’t neutralized in time, making it feel brittle, porous and weak.
