Q
When I relax my hair, it doesn’t last as long as I would like it to. Are there any products I can use to slow down outgrowth and extend the longevity of my relaxer?—Keisha

A
I am not aware of any products that will slow down hair growth and if there were, I don’t think you would want to use them. It may be that you are not getting your hair straight enough during the relaxer application. Make sure you’re using the strength and timing that is right for your hair texture. Also make sure you are smoothing the hair while the relaxer is processing. Any one of these details could help you achieve your desired results.
