Having thick hair is a common desire among relaxed haired ladies. That sought-after thickness and body in the hair gives you more styling options and signifies overall hair health. When I first began my hair journey, my relaxed hair was thin, damaged and lifeless. Here are a few tips on how I increased the thickness in my hair.
I like to space out my relaxers as far as possible. My hair thrives when I relax every 10-12 weeks. By stretching out my relaxers I'm giving my hair a break and allowing my new growth to grow in fully before putting the relaxer on it. When your new growth is not visible, it's much easier to overlap the relaxer on the previously relaxed hair. This can cause thinness, breakage and overall damage. Stretching your relaxers makes your hair stronger and thicker over time.
