|Should you permanently color your relaxed hair?|
If you do not want to get any damage to your hair from having two chemicals, stretching your relaxers is a must. I recommend stretching even if you do not have color, but if you get it, stretching your relaxer to at least 20 weeks is highly recommended. This will give your hair time to strengthen up in between your chemical services. Also, do not go more than two shades above your natural hair color when you have relaxed hair. This means if your hair is black, you should not color your hair above a deep brown if it is relaxed. The lighter you color your hair, the weaker it becomes so you definitely do not want to color to lightly on relaxed hair. If you do, once you get your touch up on already weak hair, guess what will happen? You guessed right, it is going to break! This client got color on her relaxed hair and although it looks good in the pictures, she did have some breakage after getting her color (I did not do her color service nor her relaxer). She came to me after receiving the damage to her hair because she wants to get her hair back healthy. My goal is to educate women to avoid damage altogether because it takes more money for you to get something fixed than it does to maintain.
