    Posted: Aug 15 2013 at 7:14pm
So I've been getting relaxers since I was a small child. Never had a problem with them. But for the past 2 years (I'm 24), they've stopped working. I still use regular strength relaxers,but I've changed brands and they still do not take. My hair is always underprocessed even if I let the relaxer stay on for 10 minutes more than the recommended time. I always wait 3-4 months to try the process again.

Why is my hair rejecting relaxers now? Any other ladies had this problem?

It could be related to age.  Or the particular brand you were faithful to altered the ingredients to make you spend more.

For some people yes.  It could also be coarser with age.  Plus I have heard that after a woman gives birth, their hair texture changes.  Some people hairs gets curlier and for others it gets straighter.

With time our bodies change... hair is certainly included. Just as gray hair is hard to color... The chemical balances shift which could be making your hair resistant to the relaxer. 

You may want to seek a professional for a professional grade relaxer specific to your needs and concerns. I know in this time we all want to save a buck, but don't do it at the expense of healthy hair. :)

There are a few factors you could consider and that is diet and medications. As we get older and we take on certain medications or health conditions can affect the structure of your hair making it more resistant. Relaxer closer together like within a 6-8 week span of time and leave the relaxer on for a shorter period of time when processing and that will more likely solve your problem.

How often are you putting them on your hair? At one point, my hair did the same thing. I then switched to super. Little did I know, my hair was overprocessed. I was doing them every four to six weeks. ...I just figured my hair was super nappy lol. Until I bought my first wig, then I was getting it braided all the time and once went five months without a perm and when I finally got one my hair was so silky and straight. I hadn't seen it like that in years! My hair was so pretty and healthy and stayed straight for the longest and I didnt even work the perm when I was putting it on there. It was only a regular too. I hope you find your solution like I did. Good luck! !
