Ever felt like a slave to your beauty maintenance obligations?
Need to know if you’re going TOO MUCH or TOO LITTLE?
Relaxer Touch up: Every 6 – 10 weeks
Trim: Depending on the health of your hair it is about average to get it trimmed about every 6-10 wks. If your hair is more dry & badly damaged it may need a trim every 4-6 weeks.
Hair Color: Varies. Touch up on your highlights should be about every three months. If you relax your hair,wait about 3 weeks before you color & vice versa.Semi permanent & rinses are safe to use anytime. Its BEST to do a semi after a relaxer because the cuticle is more open after a chemical service. The tint will penetrate deeper & last longer.
Braids: I don’t think its a good idea to get braids right after a relaxer. The hair is already straightened & then its being pulled even more by the braids. I would wait about 3 weeks after a relaxer to get braids. Sometimes I wonder if its the braider that is pulling out peoples edges. Or if it that those frail freshly relaxed edges can’t take all that pulling? I would not leave braids in any longer than 2 months.
