Hair relaxers are used on hair that is naturally curly or kinky, in order to straighten them. Some women love visiting the salon and getting their hair relaxed. However, caution should be practised during the relaxation process. Check out these tips to see if your stylist is relaxing your hair correctly.
1. Choosing A Relaxer
Your stylist should have a fair idea about your hair type. Choosing the wrong type of relaxer, which doesn’t suit your scalp or hair can cause pain and irritation. Usually, regular relaxers work well, but if you have tight curls and coarse hair texture, opt for TCB Naturals No Base Crème Relaxer (Super) to effectively relax your mane.
2. On Hand Supplies
Make sure your stylist has all the supplies on hand. Take a good look at the supply list and preferably have everything within reach. You will save your precious time by having all the necessary amenities nearby before the relaxing process starts.
3. Strand Test
This is especially important if you are relaxing your hair for the first time. The chances of developing an allergy are high. This might take an extra few minutes but make it a point that your stylist applies the relaxer on a small section first and to check if it is suitable for your hair and scalp.
4. Follow The Directions
Although relaxing is a simple process, it can be dangerous if not done correctly. The directions that come with the TCB Naturals No Base Crème Relaxer kit are there for a reason. So take your time and follow the instructions to avoid hair damage. Your stylist should not skip any step to save time as it can prove to be dangerous.
With the help of these points, you can make sure your stylist relaxes your hair correctly.
