What do you think hair relaxers are? Even I didn’t know till yesterday before I read an excellent write up on them.
Here it is in my own words, what I had read. The relaxers are essentially the substances that are used to straighten the curly hair.
Mostly people are not satisfied with their hair types and the shape of their heads. So those with curly hair would often opt for straight hair. They have to make use of hair relaxers to straighten their hair. There are different chemicals, herbal remedies and natural products that are used to straighten the hair.
These products can be readily used and it could be used for hair safely and easily. The process of applying the hair relaxer is safe and easy and this is approved by the FDA.
The items have to be applied to the hair to make the hair quite long lasting. The products also help to make the hair strong, straight and long lasting. There are many other products that make the hair straight but none like this which helps keep the hair clean and make it shining and soft.
The components and the ingredients have to be applied as per the instructions with care and these would not produce any harmful effect on the scalp and the hair. The products are available in the form of lotions and creams and there would be no problem with the scalp.
Of course in some hair relaxers there are strong chemicals that are present. These change the characteristics of the curly hair to that of the straight hair. The cortex of the hair shaft is penetrated by the relaxer and then the shape of the curl is lost and the hair gets straight. The use of relaxers tends to make the hair weaker.
It is very essential that the hair relaxer should contain a chemical that adds vitality and strength to the hair. The hair fall can then be arrested and the hair would have some time to grow back and get back the normal strength. Therefore frequent use of relaxers is a strict no-no to the hair.
If you want to use the hair relaxer once or twice to keep up with the trendiness, you can do that but it is the natural look that is best for your hair and skin. That is a healthier way to look beautiful and remain ageless too.
