Hello LongHairCareForum, I'm a newbie. For the new year I wanted a change so I got highlights which came out really nice. I am a relaxed girl...my last relaxer was in September (I usually relax every7-8 months b/c I just get mild and its only to loosen my curl). After getting highlights I started reading various blogs and most say that I should have relaxed (touchup) first and then after 2-3 weeks do the highlights...so I'm worried b/c I guess I did it backwards. Wanted to ask for any of you that have experienced this...how long do I have to wait post-highlights to relax???? I was thinking of doing it in Spring...but my new growth is getting up there so Im anxious!!! Any tips are appreciated. Thanks!
