Is Avoiding Run Off The Real Benefit Of Stretching Your Relaxer?

Mizani relaxer
We all know that stretching relaxers is something that many long haired relaxed ladies have in common. After the recent look at the regimen that created hip length relaxed hair and it got me wondering what is it was about frequent relaxers that made them so damaging.

It seem unlikely that all the blame lies in overlapping the relaxers. Some people's hair grows pretty fast so even at 8 week intervals, they may have the required minimum of one inch of hair. Some people are also really careful to avoid overlapping but the issue remains that hair that is relaxed often tends to break often too.

You see it's not uncommon to see women who decide to transition without a big chop finally grow their to lengths previously unreached while still transitioning. While a good regimen can guarantee longer relaxed hair, that alone does not explain everything.
