What is relaxer stretching?Simply put, relaxer stretching is going more than 6 weeks between relaxer touch ups. I tend to stretch my relaxers for a minimum of 12 weeks.

This helps to minimize the potential for relaxer overlap which can weaken your hair strands even more resulting in breakage and thinner hair.
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 couple of posts with tips from me. Enjoy!
