How often can you relax your hair?
“I recommend anywhere from 8-10 weeks on average for touch-ups,” says Wauchope. While eight weeks between touch-ups is recommended, some may feel the need to apply relaxers more frequently.
Can you use a relaxer more than once?
We recommend that a relaxer retouch application be performed every 6-8 weeks. However, the frequency depends on the texture and growth rate of your hair. In over-processing, the hair is chemically treated repeatedly and this can cause dryness, split ends, breakage and even hair thinning or hair loss.
Can you relax your hair every 4 weeks?
Relaxing your hair every 4-6 weeks is simply too short of a time frame for enough new growth to appear. I stretch my relaxers at least 10-12 weeks giving me more than enough new growth for a touch up. Leaving relaxer on way too long, longer than the recommended time on your relaxer kits, is considered over-processing.
Is it safe to change hair relaxers?
Having said that though after six weeks, your re-growth is not long enough for you to have a different relaxer put on it, you will have to wait at least three months before you can change your relaxer.
