CHILL-LAX AT HOME

(We’re Talking About Your Hair…)

Silky, smooth…relaxed.

Ready for a fresh look for the new season? Coming out of a protective style and desire a design shift? Shaniqua Garcia, stylist and owner of Atlanta’s Inner Beauty Salon (and a mane pro who works with Originals by Africa’s Best Coconut Crème Ultra-Conditioning Relaxer System) shares these tips to keep in mind when relaxing tresses at home:

TIP: Prep properly. Make a checklist of all the things your need to properly relax hair at home including: the relaxer kit, gloves, clips, comb, towel, mirror and timer.

TIP: Pay attention to your scalp. Before applying the relaxer, protect your scalp, hairline and ears. The Originals by Africa’s Best Coconut Crème Ultra-Conditioning Relaxer System comes with Protective Scalpguard; it’s infused with coconut oil, vitamin E and jojoba oil that’s very soothing to the skin.

TIP: Watch the clock. Do not allow the relaxer to process longer than the suggested time provided by the relaxer kit’s manufacturer.

For more savvy relaxing tips (we’ve got 10 must-try moves), check out the “Relaxing At Home” feature in the Dec./Jan. ’19 issue of Sophisticate’s Black Hair…on sale now!
