So, let’s talk a little bit about relaxed hair. Relaxed hair needs a lot of hair care because it’s been processed and the hair that’s been processed relax, so what it does is it needs that moisture and that extra health.
What I do is when I use products like Affirm and that’s the relaxer I tend to use. I use Affirm Fiberguard. It actually helps the hair because it has a conditioning treatment in there and it keeps the hair moist and looking really nice and shinny. I also use Mizani Butter Blend and that’s another great relaxer to use on the hair. They have different types of relaxers but that’s just my preference.
Now, I would tell you, when you are taking care of relaxed hair, you want to keep conditioning that hair using really good products. There are different kinds of mask out there but again, I’m going to promote the Moroccan oil mask. I like the hydrating mask specifically for the relaxed hair.
I also will use the afro puff conditioners. They have really good conditioners for the hair and actually, the conditioner that I use for the afro puff is a mask that they have. It is a really thick mask and it’s wonderful to use in the hair. I will mix this with actually a little bit of Moroccan oil mask sometimes to give an intense treatment. Leaving them for the client for 15 to 20 minutes and it really leaves a nice shine and moisture to the hair.
I will do this about maybe once a week and recommend that the client also buy conditioners like that in the house if they don’t come to the beautician often because this is important. If you do have relaxed hair, to maintain that hair, to keep it well treated, roller set once a week. I don’t believe in drying, blow drying the hair because it tends to pull that hair and stretch out that cuticle. So, you want to maybe roller set to keep it nice.
