WIth the popularity of the natural hair movement it is still hard to believe that black women are still getting relaxers. In fact, 60% percent of all black women living in the United State still get relaxers. Dreamweavers is not pro relaxer or anti relaxer. We are pro healthy hair.
The quickest way to insure thinning edges, thinning hair, and breakage on relaxed hair is to get any braiding service immediately after getting a relaxer. Relaxers work by breaking down the protein bonds in your hair to create a looser curl pattern. When those bonds are broken that means that your hair is already in a very fragile state, that makes it more prone to breaking, snapping, and thinning. No, We are not saying that a person who has relaxed hair can not get a weaving service ever.
We just recommend that you wait about 3 weeks after the relaxer to do any serious hair manipulating. By waiting three weeks you have given your hair a chance to grow in a bit, and hopefully you have washed and deep conditioned it a couple of times to put some protein back into the hair.
The policy at www.dreamweaversahs.com is that no weaving service will be performed on any potential client who has freshly relaxed hair. We recommend waiting altleast 3 weeks. This is a policy that benefits you because we not only care about you obtaining a sewin you can be proud of, but we also want the hair that grows out of your scalp to look fabulous as well. Anyone, getting a sewin regularly should look at it as a protective style, and not as a coverup for unhealthy hair.
