    To keep your relaxed hair attractive, add natural oils to it everyday, relax your hair after 8-16 weeks.

    With patience and maintenance, your hair can look the best way you want it to be.

    Tips on how to care for your relaxed hair:

    hair wash

    Relaxed hair should not be washed every day. To preserve your natural oils and prevent breakage caused from dryness, wash your hair about 1 time a week.

    If your hair is greasy or your scalp is itchy, you can wash your hair more than once a week.

    Detangle your hair with your fingers when you are in the shower


    Instead of using a brush or a comb, get major tangles out of your hair with your fingers. As your hair is wet, comb through it with your fingers and separate the strands with any knots or tangles.

    Start from the ends of your hair and work your way up the strands. Detangle your hair before you apply shampoo or conditioner.

    If your hair is very knotted, apply your shampoo or conditioner first. This lubricates your hair and makes it easier to untangle. In addition, you can use a wide-tooth comb to help untangle it.

    Use a deep conditioning treatment 1-2 times a week

    Apply a generous amount from root to tip after you wash your hair. Let the conditioner sit on your hair for 15-45 minutes. For best results, wrap your hair in a plastic shower cap. Rinse the conditioner out completely after it sits on your hair for a while.

    • Applying a deep conditioner prevents hair breakage by infusing your hair with intense conditioning ingredients.
    • Your hair can be damp or dry when using deep conditioner.
    • For a deeper treatment, sit under a hair dryer after you put on the shower cap. The heat will help the conditioner penetrate your hair deeper.
    • Look for deep conditioners for chemically treated or relaxed hair with ingredients like coconut oil, argan oil, aloe vera juice, and honey.

    After you get out of the shower, use a generous amount of leave-in conditioner and apply it to all of your hair from root to tip. Then, squeeze a quarter-sized amount of a natural oil into your hands, rub your palms together, and run it through all of your hair. Your hair will soak up the leave-in conditioner quickly.

    • Your hair needs moisture to keep its elasticity and resist damages, especially after you relax it.
    • For best results, use a water-based leave-in conditioner. Look for ingredients including aloe vera and glycerine as well.
