Welcome to Relaxed Redefined ~ a better, healthier way to care for chemically relaxed hair. This is a personal hair journal created to share easy, do-at-home tips and techniques that have made my hair stronger and longer. I hope you'll learn something here that will enhance your healthy hair journey or better yet insprire you to start one. Happy Hair Growting!
For me improving the health of my relaxed hair means redefining what it means to have a relaxer, hence the name Relaxed Redefined or RR for short ;). Through many other blogs and websites that focus on black hair I’ve learned having a relaxer is not just about bone straight lengths and no visible new-growth. I now understand what it really means for a chemical relaxer to change the very composition of your natural hair texture. And I have come to appreciate that in order to have healthy relaxed hair I must improve my hair care routine to contend with the chemical reaction that just took place. I will be honest and say it takes a great deal of time and effort to get and keep relaxed hair healthy, but after experiencing the pay-offs of my hard work up to this point, I think it has been worth it.
My journey is far from over, I still have more to learn and many more hair goals to reach, and I hope you’ll join me as I try every day to be Relaxed Redefined. If you’re new the healthy hair care blogosphere, welcome! At Relaxed Redefined you’ll find a wealth of basic healthy hair care knowledge and a lot more. And if you’re familiar with healthy hair care blogs, websites and forums, a few concepts may be review, but the perspective will always be new. At Relaxed Redefined, there’s something for everyone! I hope you will find this blog informative, insightful and fun and I wish you good fortune on your healthy hair journey!
