Black Hair Relaxers

Black Hair Relaxers:
"Hair relaxers can cause damage and breakage in black hair
Black hair relaxers can cause less damage to the hair with the proper relaxed black hair care program. Black Hair relaxers of any kind cause damage. It is important to know how black hair relaxing can be less stressful on the hair, and how growing out relaxed hair can be made faster.

How Exotic Allure can help relaxed hair

Some people assume (falsely) that compared to lye hair relaxers, 'no lye' hair relaxers are much safer and take the damage worry away from the hair.
Both types of black hair relaxers straighten the hair by breaking down di-sulfide (sulfur bonds) bonds in the hair.
Black Hair Relaxers not only break the di-sulfide bonds in the hair but they destroy them. This is what causes the black hair to become straight. Both cause damage to the black hair and both can cause irritation to the scalp if not used properly. Lye relaxers contain sodium hydroxide as the active ingredient. With 'no lye' hair relaxers, calcium hydroxide and guanidine carbonate are mixed to produce guanidine hydroxide.

There are also thio relaxers they are made of thioglycolic Acid Salts. Namely diammonium dithiodiglycolate and or ammonium thioglycolate are the ingredients used in thio relaxer. Different brands will argue which has the lowest Ph, but as far as damaging the hair, all do a great job of destroying the s-bonds in the hair. The result is hair that is dry and damaged.

The best way to avoid damage in relaxing the black hair is to start out with strong healthy hair. When chemicals are applied to weakened hair in the beginning, the end result is far worse than if the hair was strong to begin with. By applying chemicals to weak (damaged) hair, you can almost except the result to be a disaster. Exotic Allure combats hair relaxer damage in many ways."
