Hi GHD,

I was wondering if it's alright to apply oil to my hair before getting my hair relaxed at the salon.

Hi Anonymous!

Thank you for your question. Not only is it ok to apply oil to your hair before a relaxer, but it's actually something that I recommend to all of my clients! Gently apply a natural oil of your choice such as castor, coconut or olive oil to your scalp nightly. Do this starting from 7 days before your due to relax. Also, be sure to apply the oil to the already relaxed hair to prevent overprocessing. Keep it off the new growth though, you want this hair to get straight. Oil can prevent the relaxer from taking properly.

I hope this answers your quetions!
