Should I go natural or relax? I am blind and want to begin to start taking care of my hair.
I am trying to decide whether or not to big chop my hair or get a relaxer at a salon and ask them how to get healthy relaxed hair. I want to learn to take care of my hair because my mom always used to take care of it but now I want to try on my own. Please help me. What should I do? Do I go with a relaxer because it is easier or what?
Having your hair natural will give you more power over your own head, if you relax you will be bounded to the stylist.
CaribbeanCurlz is right. You will probably always be dependent on a stylist or someone else to help you with relaxing if you relax. If you big chop, initially that will be much easier if your hair is pretty short. If you know how or can practice braiding or twisting, you can take care of your natural hair by yourself because there are no treatments you have to keep getting to maintain your hair when its natural. You will just need to keep it moisturized by deep conditioning often (like every other wash) and staying away from harsh cleansers/shampoos with sulfates in them.I hope that helps!
