I've got a question for girls with relaxed hair. After you've blow dried your hair, what tongs do u use?
What exactly is relaxed hair?
its a chemical treatment that you can use to get ur hair straight
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.
why do girls straighten their hair instead of getting it relaxed?
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?
Sorry to revive an old thread, i was just wondering what make of relaxer everyone uses? I use dark and lovely but i have used iman's one before.
frizzy hair looks so cooool on girls anyways! Bring back the 80s:P
lol gotta luv that 80's frizz!
I use revlon but sometimes its elasta-q
yep i thnk big is better anyway this summer isnt it, well its definitely not defined curls anymore!
i'm soooo impressed with my hair since i had it relaxed it is perfect for me i just wash it and occasionaly blow dry it when i need it dry in a hurry, i think i've used straigtners twice since i had it done so get that sheen! got a bit a fair bit of new growth now which looks like my hair pre treatment which is horrid can't wait till summer when i can get the treatment done again!!
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
