One of the most confusing categories of hair products to the consumer is commercial haircolor. The mystery of knowing when and what to use can be difficult when there are so many types. In this video post, I take you through the six most commonly used haircolors available to the public and explain what, how, and when it should be used.
A question that I often get is “Does relaxer damage your hair?” And the gist of it is “YES”…but all chemicals are damaging to your hair to a certain extent.
It’s not the relaxer the relaxer necessarily that is the most damaging, but the person that is applying the product that does the most damage.
Improper use is when the damage occurs. I know many of you are doing your hair yourself, so I figured I might as well help you out.
The first thing we are going to start with is the difference in relaxers. There are lye relaxers and no-lye relaxers. Some people are under the impression that no-lye relaxers are safer on the hair, but that is a misguided statement.
I choose not to use no-lye relaxer often because of the residue it will leave on the hair causes it to feel like straw. Most times, no base ly relaxer is the way to go and I’ll tell you why. Just check out the video below to find out more.
