Yeah, because when you are relaxing someone actually gave a chemical description that said your cuticles are lifted to allow the relaxer to penetrate the core or inner core which makes up your curl pattern. So if your cuticles are lifted to allow the relaxer in it will also allow the oil in with the relaxer sense it is mixed together. I'm going to ask my beautician to do this.

I wonder if EVOO would be just as good?

Some people also mix equal parts of conditioner in the relaxer mix before relaxing their hair. I have seen excellent results with that.

Oooh, really. I wonder how long it takes for the relaxer to take. Do you think that I should try this if I want bone straight results or will it just take longer?

I never did it but Anikalia did it but I believe she did it to texturize and not get bone straight.

When you go bone straight do you still get bend in your hair for a slight curl?

I think I'm adding too much oil to mine because my hair is really underprocessed this time around. I'm texlaxed, but it's still really underprocessed to me. I'll scale back on the oil amount when I relax next month.

I did this on Monday when relaxing my friend's hair. She had no burns and her hair was light and flowing afterward. It was an extra strength realxer too. I can only think it would be beneficial.

I use Sweet Almond Oil and I use 1/4 cup of oil. I followed Sistaslick's article when it came to this.

Here's a link to the article:
http://www.associatedcontent.com/art...rs.html?cat=69

Here's the excerpt I'm referencing:
"Chemical relaxers contain very harsh ingredients, but you can reduce the aggressiveness of your chemical relaxer. To reduce the harsh effects of your relaxer, simply add ¼ of a cup of your favorite oil or conditioner to the creme. This additional material will help to condition your hair. It will also buy you valuable application time during your self-relaxing process by slowing the processing of the relaxer. Any oil or lightweight conditioner will do! I use almond oil in my chemical relaxer creme."

I usually eyeball it when I "measure" so I think I added way more than 1/4 cup. I'll be breaking out my measuring cup next time around that's for sure.

Default Re: Adding Oil to Relaxers?

ok Just finished relaxing my hair. It said leave it on 15-18 minutes tops. It ended up being 19 minutes. I think that's pretty good for a beginner. (I hope) It looks ok so far. I was out of SAA, it hasnt come yet from lotion crafters, but I added 1 teaspoons of evoo and 1 teaspoon of jojoba. I didnt burn and my hair feels really soft. I am now deep conditioning in addition to the Silk conditioner that they have for prior to using the neutralizing shampoo. I will give an update on tomorrow, because I'm going to wet wrap and allow it to dry about 50 % under a dryer and dry the rest over night. wish me luck!

It came out real nice! Thanks for checking on me shyintellect! I did an aloe juice rinse to soothe my scalp as the final step. Leave in and mousse then wet wrapped. When I took it down this morning it was shiny, full with body and noticably longer. I'm very pleased with the outcome!
