  • Apply conditioner from roots to ends, including the scalp, before rinsing out thoroughly
  • Use an anti-breakage deep conditioner once per week or biweekly for maximum effectiveness.
  • Wash less often with shampoo
  • Use a moisturizer
  • Apply a leave-in conditioner
  • Use a protective style when not wearing your natural texture
  • Avoid products that contain alcohol or sulfates (products like shampoo, etc.)
  • Avoid heated styling tools
  • Follow these simple steps and enjoy your naturally beautiful hair.

Maintaining relaxed hair after relaxing can be tricky, but your relaxer will last longer while maintaining moisture in the strands if you follow these steps.

Hair is a big part of how you look, and it’s important to make sure your strands are healthy. I’ll go over some steps for maintaining relaxed hair. These include: washing with shampoo that doesn’t have sulfates or parabens, conditioning once a week to keep the natural oils from drying out, not using too much heat on your hair when styling it to avoid damaging the cuticle layer, which can lead to frizziness and breakage.

Keep relaxed hair moisturized all-day

To maintain your relaxed hair, you need a few things. You will need a moisturizer, a leave-in conditioner, and the oil of your choice. It is important that when you are washing your hair with shampoo and conditioning it, don’t use too much water because this can lead to frizzy ends. After conditioning the hair, make sure you get out of the shower and apply the moisturizer before applying any other products such as gels or mousse. The last step is using oil of preference on wet or dry hair for moisture and shine.

Hair is a big deal in the black community. It’s not uncommon to see women who spend hours getting their hair done or spending hundreds of dollars on weaves or wigs every week. Relaxed hair is one way many African American women maintain their natural locks and look healthy and shiny, but it can also be difficult to maintain if you don’t know how to care for your hair correctly.
