There’s absolutely no reason to be scared to relax your hair at home. I’m actually more scared to go to a salon, because I know that no average stylist can put in the effort and time that I would if I did the job myself. Plus, you won’t have to worry about making appointments, paying salon prices (and tipping your stylist on top of THAT), AND you can deep condition for as long as you want! So set aside an evening, and relax your own hair, and put the money you’ve saved towards something else… like clothes! Or shoes! This was filmed AFTER I relaxed my hair, so what you see is my final result. =)
Everything I mentioned can be found at your local drugstore, beauty supply store, and grocery store, but I’ve also listed where you can buy everything online.
