    Posted: Aug 06 2014 at 11:53pm
So I've always had really long relaxed hair (my hair was near my waist) until a couple months ago when I joined a pageant. The excessive flat ironing and heating caused my hair to break to the point where it was extremely thin and at my neck (I couldn't even let it out anymore). So i decided I would go on a mini hair journey and braid my hair (braids have always seemed to work for my hair). I braided my hair at the end of May and I've recently taken them out. I've noticed that my hair has grown (its almost beneath my breasts) and I want to braid it again from Sept-December however I've never braided my hair for more than three months so I'm not sure if it will start breaking. Should I relax my hair for a period and then braid again or is it safe to continue with the braiding?

I think since you want to give the hair a break, continue with the braiding. Skip the relaxer, since it will be braided. Just baby the hair. Lots of conditioner treatment and don't braid too tight. Keep it moisturized. The new growth needs moisture so it won't break. Then just take a few braids down and retouch them every so often. This will allow them to still look great for longer.

Yes braiding is an effective method to decrease hair breakage and split ends. Continue with loose braiding, because tight braids may also cause hair breakage. Avoid flat ironing and try some herbal products.
