As long as the mixes are seperate it shouldn't matter.

But how long is the shelf life of a relaxer? Does it expire?

I buy my relaxers premixed and in the largest size they come in so they last for multiple applications.  I havent had any problems with my hair with them being in the refrigerator after months.

I keep my left over relaxer in the refrigerator...cool dry place...and for the ones that have to be mixed, do not mix until you are ready to use, once mixed can be kept in cool dry place (refrigerator) for up to 3 days. if relaxers are put in the freezer...keep in mind these are chemicals, you are changing the compound tremendously this is making it weaker and may cause some of the chemicals to react negatively. aka harsh just as if the chemical gets too hot, it breaks them down to where they will no straighten proper---you can usually smell many of the chemicals as they have turned into gas

Relaxers don't need to be refrigerated. They last years. I don't know if there is any actual science behind the practise of putting them in the fridge...on the bodybuilding sites, they call things like this that we do because we heard about it somewhere "bro science" lol.
 
Dr Ali Sayed is the business when it comes to ethnic hair-care science in particular. I go to his site a lot. He works for Keracare I think, but he talks sense about a lot of ingredients & products. He doesn't pimp Keracare in every post.
 
The link has a long list of the expiration dates & storage info of all the different types of hair products you can think of. He doesn't mention anything about keeping relaxers in the fridge. He says event the worst type of relaxer can survive 6 months. I think I'll post the whole list in Growth in a minute.
 

RELAXERS
Shelf Life: 1 to 1.5 years (Sodium Hydroxide) aka LYE
2 years (Guanidine Hydroxide) aka No lye/box/those that need to be mixed

Of the most widely used relaxers, those formulated with sodium hydroxide are the most challenging to formulate. An improperly formulated relaxer can have a shelf life of six months or less. Well developed formulas will work effective for up to a year and a half.

 
Guanidine hydroxide relaxers are a little easier to stabilize from a product development standpoint, and can be effectively used for up to two years. (If the creme portion of the relaxer system seems a bit dry on the upper surface, do not assume that the product is beyond '" shelf life. This is characteristic of relaxers in this category, which contain
calcium hydroxide.)

I use a lye relaxer, I buy it in 4 lb tubs, and I use it for several touch ups (15-18 months) with no problem.
