Today is RELAXER DAY and marks the first week of the new series, "Can my relaxed hair be healthy". I could not wait to get my relaxer today since this was the longest stretch I have done to date. It has been over nine months since my last relaxer! I only went over six months this time simply because I had braids and there was no point in getting a relaxer when I knew my hair was going to be braided up anyway so the braids is the one and only reason I stretched my relaxer for so long. I say all the time that relaxed hair can be healthy as long as it is properly cared for.
For relaxer day I decided to go with a roller set in order to avoid excessive heat right after getting my relaxer. I chose to do it on the large rollers because I didn't want a curly style, I wanted it to be straight with just a slight bump on the ends. After rolling my hair, I took the rollers out and wrapped it to ensure it would not be too curly.
For maintenance I simply wrap it up daily with a simply satin scarf. I do not apply heat this week at all!
