I wonder if anyone can help me. I'm new to the BHF so not so sure how it works.
I haven't relaxed my hair for a year this month and have been braiding for a whole year. Right now I'm pretty unsure about my next move. In 2009 I had bra strap length hair in great condition as I lived a short distance away from my aunt who would constantly take care of it for me. When I went to university I had no idea how to take care of my own hair and as a result it all broke off and was up to my ears last year.
After not relaxing for a year I am thinking of going back to relaxer as I know have more knowledge on how to take care of my own hair. However I'm not sure what to do once I take out my braids, do I go and get a treatment and leave it a week before relaxing? I though you were not supposed to was your hair a week before your relaxer. Please could someone give me some advice on what I should be doing with my hair which I assume is completely natural a week before relaxing?
I plan on braiding again as I live in London and we just don not have a climate that facilitates hair growth, it rains a lot and is very cold.
Thank you so much
