There are a variety of relaxers, perms, and texturizers available on the market… but what’s the difference?
- Relaxers chemically straighten afro hair
- Perms add curls or waves to afro hair
- Texturisers gently soften frizzy afro hair
How long do Relaxers last for?
Relaxing is a long-lasting afro hair service that smooths and straightens until either the hair grows out or you have a haircut. Much like coloured hair, when the hair grows, you will need to have a ‘touch up’ service.
Relaxers vary in strength, depending on the hair, and there are also conditioning relaxers. When relaxing we take several factors into consideration such as curl type, length, and condition of the hair. These factors are necessary in helping to determine which relaxer suits the hair type.
Depending on the condition of the hair, a deep conditioning treatment may be advised to further strengthen, moisturise, and protect before the relaxing service.
The brands below achieve a quality relaxing process in our experience:
The Avlon Affirm Conditioning Relaxer is more technologically advanced than ever and increases the moisture base to become more manageable and easier to comb resulting in incredible softness and shine.
The Mizani Conditioning Classic Relaxer is designed to transform coarse and resistant hair into sleek, smooth waves. Mizani was created with scalp care in mind and is effective on a range of curl types, from coils to loose waves and curls - delivering consistent results with no scalp irritation. This professional product is formulated with sodium hydroxide and is safe for colour treated and fine hair and is an effective instant way to go from frizzy to glossy.
The ORS Relaxer will straighten hair utilizing olive oil and natural herbs to protect the hair from damage during the process. Historically, olive oil has been used as a healing elixir, rich in essential fatty acids that impart moisture directly to the hair and scalp. The system provides continuous protection while straightening and gives long-lasting shine.
