Not all relaxers are made equal! Each of the relaxers our stylists are trained in have different properties and are designed to smooth different hair types and textures. While our stylists can guide you to the best hair products for your hair, we’ve provided some information on some of our products below.
Thio Relaxers – One of the more commonly used hair relaxers, Thio relaxers break disulfide bonds in hair. After exposure, the hair is rinsed and towel dried. Subsequently, our stylist will treat your hair with a neutralizer.
Alkaline Relaxers – For natural hair, alkaline relaxers are one of the safest choices. Often combined with alkaline salt minerals, alkaline relaxers can be used as an alternative to Brazilian Blowouts or Keratin Hair Treatments. Ask one of our experts if the alkaline relaxer is right for you!
Lye & No Lye Relaxers – Lye relaxers utilize sodium hydroxide to chemically treat the hair. While the difference in lye and no lye relaxers is only a few points on the pH scale (12-14 lye & 9-11 for no lye), it does make a huge difference. No lye relaxers can lead to dryer hair when used improperly. Our stylists will help determine which is best for you!
