6 weeks post and relaxing in 2 weeks.
I always do my own relaxers because if I mess it up, I have nobody to blame but myself. I’m kinda scared of salons lol. I only go there to get a silk press and trim.Are you going to do that yourself or will you go to a salon? I can't imagine how difficult it would be to relax on 9 month post hair!
Newbie and long time lurker.
I relaxed 9/22/21 and was 14 weeks post and the reason I am now a member here. I had a horrid experience at the salon with my touch up and will now go back to self relaxing again.
Yes I've had one or 2 so called stylists that didn't wash out the relaxer thoroughly so was still burning my head after I left.Welcome to the forum and this thread. Sorry to hear about your bad experience, I'm sure you'll make a fast recovery. Yes I decided long ago that I will no longer let stylists relax my hair; as my hair always stayed the same length with the stylists and they are far too rough. So I can take as long as I need with my touch up and be incredibly gentle.
