How To | Prep Your Hair For & On Relaxer Day…

Instead boring you with my relaxer day prep wash day, I decided to share my routine for future purposes and for anyone who wants to start a healthy hair journey.  This is a guide line that I use for my preparation prior and on the day itself. I’m venturing into being a DIY girl and although its nerve racking I’m up for the challenge this weekend @ 18weeks post relaxer.

  1. Great post. I've never done a protein treatment before neutralising but might actually try it on my next relaxer x

  2. Awesome tips and I love how easy to read this format is! After experiencing terrible irriation during my last touch up, I'm most certainly going to base my scalp with a ton of Vaseline!

  4. I like the way you presented it. I do pretty much the same thing, except since I'm texlaxing, I skip the clarifying shampoo during the pre-relaxer wash day.

  7. I don't have a relaxer anymore, but I followed every tip you have and made it a point to NEVER SCRATCH my scalp before a relaxer. I had to learn that lesson the hard way.

  8. The vaseline trick was mandatory when I was relaxing my hair ... OH and the no scratching. Girl, I learned horribly why it is so important not to bother the scalp before relaxing.

  10. Oooh, you relax your own hair, YAY. I haven't gone there but I hope to do that one day. Can't wait to see your results, I always love to see the after result of a relaxer.
