I've been relaxing (perming) my hair for as long as I can remember. Anyone who also gets their hair relaxed knows that you shouldn't do it too often. It should only be when you get the proper amount of new growth. I've heard of people perming their hair every TWO WEEKS and that's just bizarre and dangerous! For me, relaxing my hair every 3 months or until I can't run a comb through my roots is around the time I go and see my hair dresser Ron.
I asked Ron what he thought, and this is what he had to say:
The conventional wisdom is 6-8 week. Personally, I prefer to evaluate each individual based on their growth rate.
