Whether you've got virgin hair and you're thinking about relaxing it or you tried going natural and you're finally fed up with it, relaxing your hair is a big decision. Afterall, it's permanent.! Here are a few things to consider before you take the plunge:

1. The Maintenance and your Lifestyle

Relaxing your hair will completely change the structure of your hair strands. Your hair will become a lot more porous and much more prone to breakage. It's going to need even more maintenance to keep it hydrated and healthy. Before you go ahead with relaxing your hair ask yourself if you have the time to keep up with it?

2. Your Hair Health

Relaxer is made up of harsh chemicals. It's not a gentle process at all. Is your healthy enough to be relaxed? If you're already experiencing breakage and your hair feels limp and lifeless then it would be best for you to focus on improving your hair health before exposing it to the chemicals in a relaxer. Consult with a professional if you aren't sure whether your hair is healthy enough.

3. Your Commitment to the Decision

As mentioned, relaxer is permanent. You can't wash it out and go back to your curls once you've decided you've had enough of the straight look. You'll have to cut the relaxer out. Are you ready for that?

At the end of the day, it's just hair and it's yours, so you can do whatever you want to it. If the creamy crack is calling your name and you're ready to keep up with the maintenance then do what makes you happy.
