How to Care for Your Relaxed Hair
These days there is a wealth of information out there about caring for natural hair, but what about relaxed hair? At our Marietta hair salon we want to make sure all of our clients can enjoy the beautiful, healthy hair they deserve, so today we’d like to share a few tips on how to care for relaxed hair. (Most of these are actually good for natural hair, too!)
- Protect your hair at night- The friction of your head moving on the pillow case can cause a surprising amount of damage, so prevent breakage by wrapping your hair in a silk scarf and/or sleeping on a silk pillow case.
- Switch to a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner- Sulfates (commercial detergents often found in hair and body toiletries) are very drying to your hair, and drying is damaging. Protect your hair by using sulfate-free hair products recommended by your stylist to preserve the health and appearance of your hair.
- Reduce the number of times you wash your hair each week- The less you wash your hair, the less protective oil you’ll be stripping from it and the more hydrated (and thus stronger and happier!) it will be. Don’t worry, you won’t have to skip the gym if you pull your hair back while working out and use strategies like co-washing.
