4. Only relax unprocessed hair

I repeat only apply the relaxer to your new growth. The new growth is the hair that hasn't been previously relaxed. Once hair is relaxed it doesn't need to be relaxed again with the exception being the hair was underprocessed but that's a whole different conversation. You only want to relax the new growth because relaxing previously relaxed hair can overprocess it. This weakens the hair even more and can cause some serious breakage.
