We have already established that relaxer stretching is key to having healthy relaxed hair. Many women can manage their hair perfectly fine up until the eight-week mark. I am aware, however, that it can be difficult for many women to manage two textures while stretching. For this reason, I am giving you a few styles that will help. That way, rather than getting your relaxer too soon, you can do a few of these styles to help you stretch.
The first style that is relaxer stretching friendly is a wig. I personally think everyone should have at least one good wig. We all have bad hair days every now and then, so it would be great to have a wig on standby. I have plenty of them ranging from bob length to waist length. Wigs are also a great way to play with color. If you get/have a wig, be sure to maintain it using these products.
My last recommendation for relaxer stretching is a ponytail. I prefer a faux ponytail and I usually use two bundles of kinky straight hair to match my new growth. The only warning I would provide when wearing ponytails is to not wear them in the same spot for more than a week. It could lead to breakage if too much tension is placed in the same spot repeatedly.
