Questions and Answers

Can you use vinegar to neutralize a relaxer?

I'm planning on relaxing my hair, but I don't have any neutralizing shampoo.


Yes, some vinegar can be used as a natural neutralizer. Specifically, apple cider vinegar is often used as one of the most effective natural neutralizers.

Can I use another relaxer the next day?

I relaxed my hair yesterday that I bought from the store, I took a shower today and when I got out and was drying my hair and some of my curls came back can I go back to the store to get another kit and put it in my hair for 5 maybe 10mins

You should never apply relaxer to hair unless it is new growth every 8 weeks. If you apply now the day after the first relaxer, you may damage your hair and have to wait a year to get back the hair you started with. For now try a natural solution of Coconut oil with a little bit of Apple Cider Vinegar. Let this sit for 30 minutes each time before you wash your hair.
