Washing your hair in between relaxers can seem like a job. I use to hate the struggle myself until I created a wash routine that has helped me lessen my dependency on creamy crack. It took some time to find the right products that compliment my hair but now that I have the recipe - I am not letting go.
Question: How often do you wash your hair? How often do you flat iron your hair? And, how often do you get a relaxer?
Answer: It all depends on my wash routine. I wash my hair every 8-10 days and flat iron my hair 3-4 times a week. In between flat ironing, I wear headwraps to avoid applying extra heat to my hair. I go without relaxers as long as I can maintain my hair with a good wash and daily routine to keep my roots and edges manageable. I probably get less than 5 relaxers a year because of this (I apply my relaxers at home).
I am interested in learning about your wash routine. Let me know your hair type and what products you use to maintain it between relaxers.
