I mix in deep conditioner with my henna treatments so it doesn't dry my hair too awful much. I think I'm going to wait on the relaxing tho. My hair isn't looking good toward the ends. I often pull it back or sleep on it before fully drying it so it tangles then BREAKS when I try to untangle it. I'm going to get some cut off and then I'll see what kind of shape it's in, if the damage is more throughout my hair rather than these ratty ends. Thanks for the responses!
