"RELAXERS: IS IT TIME?"
Dear Doc Hair:
Donna, a 10 year old girl who wanted a relaxer, her first chemical treatment, asked her mom for permission and her mother, an avid reader of my articles, told Donna to ask me, and that she (Mom) would take the HAIR DOC's findings into consideration when making her decision.
There was a time when getting a relaxer was like a rite of passage for a more grownup look. Somewhere around the age of eight and up. a higher acid content in a growing child's body will cause more sensitivity to the chemicals in the relaxers. Many relaxers contain a chemical called ammonium thioglycolate, with strengths ranging from mild, regular, and super. The chemical of a relaxer destroys the bonds in the hair cuticle where the hair has nowhere to go but straight, and if left on the hair too long the hair will begin to dissolve and pull apart. Chemical burns on the scalp can also occur. Once you receive a relaxer you will have to keep it up, because the new growth will have all of its bonds and will be stronger than the previously relaxed hair, so now that space between the two areas becomes a stress point and the hair will break straight across that line.
The time between relaxers is normally about every other month, but it really depends on the person on the rate that their hair grows.
There are relaxers developed just for kids, but most of those relaxers are just as strong as adult relaxers, because a child still has her strong natural hair, where an adult’s hair has been broken down and damaged from the time they started the relaxing process to the present.
Donna, if your hair is very coarse, I would suggest that you work with natural hair care products. Do not rush any chemical damaging process to your follicles before it's time. The earlier you start putting chemicals on your hair the earlier the breakdown of your hair cuticles begins, no matter the condition of your natural hair.
But, if you do decide to relax your hair, make sure that you have a hair care professional perform this application for you. A hair care professional will protect your hair and instruct you on how to take care of it between visits.
