does it get the hair poker straight, cos mine keeps going frizzy with my crudy ceramics!

Black Mamba, it doesnt really damage it as long as you care for it properly. I get my hair relaxed at the hairdressers, then they bloydry it n then they tong it using those metal tongs

After i blowdry my hair i use flat irons and they make my hair really smooth and glossy. It usually lasts for about a week.

most people that relax their hair tend to be of afro-caribbean origin
our hair can't just be straightened it's too thick and a lot of times uncontrollable

and the only way for our hair to be nice and straight without relaxer is with a hot comb and those died out in the 1970s

please can you advise me, i am of very mixed carribean origin. i think my hair texture is a bit like indian women with very wavy hair - the strands are thicker and coaser than european hair but isnt like black people hair. even if i spend an hour with straightening spray/GHDS/oils and hairspray i cant get it straight. and even if i get it straighter, it becomes wavy again very quickly.

i have heard i can use home perm solution but instead of using the rollers, i can just comb it through my hair to make it straight. and also, what happens if i use black people hair products on my hair? can i use black hair relaxers on it or will it kill it?

right go to a black hair salon for professional advice as they have been trained for all hair types.

you might be able to get a very weak relaxer but i do not know your better off asking a professional

I hate having my hair relaxed cause my scalp is so sensitive, but the results after are worth it. i heard that the olive oil relaxer is pretty good. At the moment i am trying to give the flat ironing a break and letting it go wavy by putting it in a bun.

By the way does anyone here that has had their hair relaxed also have layers in their hair?

I'm thinking about getting my hair layered but only slightly.

Has anyone ever used a temporary dye in their hair? My hair is really dark brown and I'd love to have it a darky rusty red but not sure how dyes react to relaxed hair. Can I use ordinary dyes or do I need special afro-caribbean products for relaxed hair?

Well my hairdresser says that dying your hair AND relaxing it is a bad decision. But if you absolutely have too i would go to a hairdressers and use dye especially for black hair
