Keep Your Relaxed Hair Moist
Your relaxed hair requires lots of care and attention, so make sure to give it just that. On a weekly basis moisturise your hair using a conditioner that will help replenish the hair and restore definition. Our stylists will first examine your hair before suggesting the best hair care products. If your hair is super dry, invest in a weekly deep conditioning hair treatment such as Junior Green to add some essential oils back into your hair.
How To Stop Relaxed Hair Breaking
As mentioned above, deep conditioning is a great way to keep relaxed hair moist and strong. However, it is also the perfect remedy to stop or prevent breakage to hair.
Breakage can also be prevented by lowering the temperature of your styling products and using a heat protectant before styling. Avoid combing your hair when it is dry, instead apply conditioner first.
Finally, using a silk/satin pillowcase will do wonders in preventing breakage due to the slippery smooth texture.

When you notice new hair growth, it is time for ‘touch up’. Leaving it too late may cause breakage, as the difference in the new growth and the relaxed hair texture will conflict.
At Junior Green, we use the best hair relaxers for Afro hair. Our relaxer strengths vary from regular-strength to super strength, and we also use conditioning relaxers.
We will take a number of factors into consideration when relaxing your hair, such as your curl type, hair length, and the condition of your Afro hair. These factors are important to help us determine if your hair is suitable for a relaxer service. Depending on the condition of your hair, your hair stylist may suggest a deep conditioning hair treatment to further strengthen and protect your hair.
Look After Your Scalp For Healthy Relaxed Hair
A healthy scalp means healthy hair. If you suffer from a dry scalp try and do pre-poo’s when you have time (pre-poo is when you apply conditioner prior to shampooing your hair to add moisture. If your scalp is itchy and irritated, try to avoid build up of oils and products. Wash regularly, ensure your scalp can breathe and avoid doing tight hairstyles too often. Regular washes help tremendously, especially if you have an active lifestyle e.g. if you are in a sports team or exercise regularly.
