I want to go back to relax every 8 weeks ! I mean, when i see hair like BuidableBeauty’s or Megz… They are not relaxing for more than every 10 weeks, and the hair is flowing !
Now i know i won’t go back to relaxing that often, because it made my hair think back in the days, and even if i have a lot more knowledge than back then…i don’t feel like !
But i would love to be able to do so ! The thing is i want thickness over length, so i know that on my relaxer in January, i ‘ll get a GOOD trim from my hair stylist & i’ll cry, of course, lol, cause i hate trims, but heyyy… My hair will look cute & helthier after that
I might get layers, i am not sure yet…
What do you think? How often do you ladies relax?
I usually relax every 10-12 weeks, but since the semester will be done for me in a week and I don’t have to go anywhere special…I’m going to stretch til the first weekend in January. I’ll just be in the house most of December, so my hair will be tied up anyway, so no need for a relaxer so soon in my opinion. I’m 8 wks post today. January will make 13 wks.
@Tiffany : this is what i usually do, 13-14 weeks, unless i just see too much shedding/breakage, but yeah this average is good for a lot of ppl
Usually i stretch for at least 3 months.. My longest stretching was 5 months.. But i don’t think i’ll do it again. even if it went pretty well, dealing with 2 textures is “dangerous”.. Lol. xxx
i naturally have thick hair and it never comes out straight but i try and stretch for months but it could be a challenge we can try together and see what happens, what do you think? lol
i am a challenge girl ! lool, sorry for the delay in your answer girl
I have done 6 months and it went great, but I am not sure whether I will go that long again. I am currently about 13 weeks post with unintentionally texlaxed hair and I have no idea when I will relax again. I don’t see anything wrong with short stretches…it’s about what your hair can handle. I say if your hair can handle stretching, do it, if not, as long as you are realxing after 8 weeks and not overlapping you will be fine.
so when are we going to start this hair challenge
@kereel : well let me get my next relaxer by January, then we will start ok? when is your next touch up scheduled?
MY NEXT TOUCH UP IS IN JAN 4TH BUT I WANNA DO IT THE SAME TIME WITH YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I WILL WAIT FOR U LOL
