Hair Question: Sunshyne, Are You Relaxed or Natural?Saturday, June 21, 2014
"Hi, I've been seeing your videos/pictures, and your hair sometimes looks relaxed and other times completely natural but stretched. So my question is your hair relaxed or natural? How often you relax you hair? Thanks"
Advice:Honestly, I've received this question a lot! My hair is 100% relaxed. I'm not natural. Although my hair may resemble natural hair in it's "air dried state", I'm totally a relaxed haired girl :) Some think I'm texlaxed as well (that's when you leave the relaxer in your hair for a short period of time just to loosen the curl pattern - not to make it straight); however, that is not the case. I leave my relaxer in for 20-25 mins, that is including application and smoothing. I actually smooth my hair approximately 3 times during this process. I use a "Normal" strength relaxer, every 10-12 weeks, so that it processes at a slower rate. This prevent's my hair from becoming over-processed. The "Normal" strength relaxes my hair to a point where it's straight, yet still has a bit of kink in it! This helps to keep my hair healthier and thicker!
