Everything You Need To Know About Hair Relaxers

Contemplating relaxing your hair this year? We've got your back. We know that this process can come with a lot of questions and concerns. Choosing to relax or to keep your hair natural is your choice, the most important thing is that you do what's best for your hair texture.

Here are a few things to keep in mind while choosing the right relaxer for your hair.

What are hair relaxers?

Just like the name suggests, a hair relaxer is a cream-esque treatment that is often used to chemically 'relax' or straighten curls and afro hair. For ages, relaxers have played a key role in black women’s hair care regimen.

How to choose the right relaxer for your hair type?

Pick a relaxer strength compatible with the texture of your hair and taming your unruly mane won’t be out of the question. Discovering which relaxer would work best for your hair type is an intimidating task but fret not, we got you!

Fine texture:

It can be recognised for having the smallest diameter of the three hair types and is also known as thin hair. The only two layers of hair are the cuticle and cortex. Although smooth, it can break easily. So, how do we deal with it? MegaGrowth Sensitive Care No-Lye Relaxer is specifically crafted with 25% more conditioning oils to give delicate care and nourishment for your hair because fine hair is vulnerable to breakage. No longer will the sensitivity of your hair stand between you and the hairstyle you desire!

Medium texture:

Talk about the most prevalent hair type and you have medium hair which is also referred to as normal hair texture! Compared to fine hair texture, it has a larger diameter. It is the easiest to work with and has a feel closest to cotton. Despite being the simplest to handle, this hair type is not without its share of breakage, split ends, and dryness. So, let MegaGrowth Regular Relaxer serve as your defence against the bad guys. It enhances flexibility and mobility while up to 100% strengthening relaxed hair. Everything needed for frequent touch-ups or hair relaxing is a part of the deal.

Coarse texture:

The thickest hair type is coarse hair, which is the only form to have all three layers—the cuticle, cortex, and medulla—present. Comparatively speaking, drying takes longer. Don’t worry, MegaGrowth Super 6 Touch Up Relaxer is here to salvage your energy if you're tired of battling with your thick locks every morning. The thickest hair needs extra attention, thus this super relaxer, which is filled with wonder oils and nourishing ingredients, is ideal for coarse hair.

Taking care of your relaxed hair:

Getting your hair relaxed is like caring for your baby, you need to perpetually nurture them. Here are some tips and tricks to keep your chemically-straightened hair healthy and stunning.

1. Provide them with the moisture they need:

Keeping your hair hydrated should be your number 1 priority post-relaxing. For smooth and silky hair, use deep-penetrating light oils and leave-in conditioners. You can use the MegaGrowth Growth-Oil to keep your scalp moisturised. It will also help grow your hair. It helps your scalp retain moisture and leaves your hair shiny.

2. Take care while colouring relaxed hair:

If you’re planning to relax and colour your hair, always relax them first! Make sure you’re giving your hair enough time after the process of relaxing. Colouring and relaxing both require chemical application to your hair, and too much chemical exposure can leave the hair vulnerable to damage.

3. Get into a long-distance relationship with your heating tools:

Overusing hot styling tools, such as hair curling and flat irons, can further erode your strands and harm your tresses. Use them cautiously.

4. Trim the ends when it’s time:

Untrimmed split-ends can make the hair look thinner and weak. Frizz is your worst enemy and can make your hair look dry. So when feasible, clip the frayed tips to stop them from splitting further.

5. Deep conditioning is your new BFF:

It’s advised to deep condition your hair regularly after relaxing them. This helps in restoring moisture that was stripped during the cleansing process. We recommend using the Megagrowth Deep Strengthening Conditioner which can help strengthen your hair inside out.

So there you go, Megaqueens. The next someone asks you about hair relaxers, bam! Your ten-minute speech is ready!
