I am going out of town for a special event and I want my hair to look good. My hair is very dry and nappy. I want my hair to be straight. Every time I relax my hair the roots are straight but the tips are still nappy. —Jenn
This may be the time to treat yourself to a salon visit. First, your results after the relaxer process sounds like your hair may be over-processed and a corrective relaxer may get your hair on the right track.
Conditioning with moisturizers may help the dryness, but in order for you to have great style, you must start with healthy hair. Once the stylist gets your hair to a healthy place, together you can find an appropriate style. Determine what look you are going to wear on your trip, and share this with the stylist so she can make some suggestions. Planning your entire look in advance is the best route to success.
