It's Question Time! - Relaxers
I was wondering if it's alright to apply oil to my hair before getting my hair relaxed at the salon.
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!

Welcome to Good Hair Diaries or GHD as I now like to refer to it. My name is Kavuli and I am passionate about DIY hair care. I decided to start this blog back in September of 2009 after reading an article written in the New York Times about natural ethnic hair. Being an African woman , I believed that I had something valuable to say to my community. It is possible to have the head of hair of your dreams with proper care and information. You can attain it all by yourself!
GHD cares about one type of hair only...HEALTHY HAIR! I love natural, transitioning, relaxed and locked hair, and my goal is to provide information to women of every hair group without bias. I have been relaxed, weaved, wigged, braided up and cut short. I am currently natural with near bra strap length curly hair. Follow me as I review products, interview the natural hair community, figure out a solid hair regimen, research ethnic hair care and ramble about all those things that make GOOD HAIR!
