Q.
I relax my hair every four weeks. The perm doesn’t last long, and when I finish washing and conditioning my mane, it looks like my relaxer is old. What is the best store-bought relaxer to use? What kind of shampoo and conditioner should I use? —Marie

A. There are a few things you want to keep in mind when choosing a relaxer system. First, make sure you are choosing the right strength to match your coif’s texture—is your hair fine, medium or coarse? Are you following all of the manufacturer’s directions regarding timing and application process? And second, use the shampoo and conditioner provided in the box. Each relaxer system has been designed to work best in conjunction with all the components in the kit.
