The truth is usually hard to swallow . . . But when it comes to healthy hair there are no short cuts. Especially if you relax your hair. YOU HAVE TO ESTABLISH A RELATIONSHIP WITH A SALON. I think relaxers get a bad rap partly because some women don’t go to a professional enough. Or they do their own relaxers. A hairstylist is like a doctor to your hair. Like a mechanic for your car. Your hair needs maintenance & check ups. There is simply no other way to say it.Healthy hair is easier to style & stays shiny. Dull hair,breakage,or curls that won’t stay is a sign something is not right. People resort to so many things to make their hair look healthy. Black rinses (for shine) to mask over processing. Braids or weaves, when hair is falling out. You have to treat your hair like another bill.
