Why should you stretch your relaxers?

When you stretch your relaxers it's easier to see where the line of demarcation is and how much hair should be processed. This helps to minimize the potential for relaxer overlap which can weaken your hair strands, even more, resulting in breakage and thinner hair.

Despite the fact I've been stretching my relaxers for a little, even before I knew it was a thing, I'm still learning what I should and shouldn't do. One thing that's been helpful for me is reading articles and blogs to see what tips and tricks other women are sharing.

So instead of regurgitating more information that is already out there on the web, I'm going to share some of my favorite posts and tips on relaxer stretching from blogs and sites I frequent and a couple of posts with tips from me. Enjoy!
