How To Stretch Your Relaxer

I am sooooo proud of this client! She was previously brainwashed into thinking that she had to get a relaxer every six weeks.  Since becoming her stylist I have tried to teach her that she can go twice that long in order to get healthier hair.  Well, she came in today at the ten week mark!

She will be coming back in two weeks to get her relaxer putting her right at twelve weeks! I think that is great.  She has already said that she has noticed her hair growing faster than before which is always a good thing!

Even at ten weeks I was able to get her hair straight. So she will be able to maintain it until she comes back by wrapping it.  In order to get to twelve weeks she gradually increased her stretching time going from six weeks to eight weeks to ten weeks, etc.  This is the same thing I did as well.  I gradually increased the time between each relaxer until I made it to the six month mark.

And of course I used Silk Hydration by L. Jones conditioner on her hair to make it extra silky!
