So what is the issue with relaxers? According to the article “Relaxed vs. Natural Hair: Pros & Cons”, relaxed hair is a little more manageable when it comes to blow-drying and flat ironing. Because natural hair is thicker, having a relaxer loosens the curl pattern making it easier to detangle and style for common “relaxed” hair styles. The article also dispelled the myth that your hair will grow slower if your hair is relaxed. Regardless of your hair being natural or relaxed, the growth rate is determined by the care that you instill and the maintenance. In the last paragraph of the article, the author wrote that neither natural or relaxed is greater than the other. Both are great options for black hair.
When it comes to hair, there is no right or wrong way of treating it. Just remember that you can always protect your natural and relaxed hair with wigs, weaves, and clips-ins.
