I used a no-lye relaxer (SoftsheenCarson) and not only did it break off at the ends but at the scalp. I was slowly losing my hair and left with less than a 1/4 inch of hair. Since then (last Feb) I just chopped it all off and grew it out naturally. I'm only at about 5 inches now, and thinking about relaxing again..So should I go lye?
Do you think the my touch up wasn't rinsed out properly with the neutralizing shampoo?
And I swear that the top of my head has been more tender...should I ever perm again??

Thanks

yes it def was not risned and shapooed out with nutralizewr properly.. this has happened to me once. yopu must becareful with thopse you let in your hair... and if you do it your self you must also be careful. Yzou can relax a agin but for now baby your hair and scaple for a good at lest 4 months although you should really weight 6 to 7 if  you can. condition your scalp ever day co wash... dry and apply a moisturizer by sunsilk the blue and green bottle for now and when you get some lenght switch back and forth betw the pink for strenght and the blue and green and put a silk scarf on your head a bed time... and if your really want some lenght put braid in like the 5 mnth maybe 4 although i highly do not recommend putting braids in good luck and use your betetr judge mentnext time.. just becarful. sorry all typos i was in rush

I was always told that Lye relaxers are more harsh on the hair and for people who have tighter coarser hair. I have always used creme of nature no lye and it hasn't done anything wrong to my hair that i can notice. But i do think my ends are very dry due to the fact that when i look at a strand of my hair, towards the end i notice a little white dot and if i pull the strand, it breaks right where that little white dot is. Now i am no genius when it comes to hair but i think this tells me that my ends are very dry. I have also read that when u have a relaxer u should wash your hair every week and put a leave in conditioner in your hair every week,also deep condition at least twice a month! Haven't tried this yet but i will soon.
 
I also heard thats same thing about lye being harsh on your hair.. now im hearing that lye is good for you? I must say ive become a lil confused...Maybe ill try the one with Lye.. The relaxer I use is called Precise no-lye and it does make my a hair dry but it makes it straight and healthy looking so i dont complain...I dont wanna try this relaxer lye and have problems...

Lye is basically NaOH which is a harsh chemical so be careful about getting it on your skin
