I know all too well the challenges that can come from trying to style your hair and being halted by your hair’s texture, length, thickness and even hair health. Weak and fine hair especially can be met with this situation when looking into chemical application processes. The efficiency of chemicals on the hair is incredible but can do a number on our strands.
This is especially true of relaxers. We know all too well the discomfort that can come from getting a relaxer and the same is true for individuals with weak hair, if anything more so. Here is a list of the top 4 relaxers for weak hair that should definitely be on your radar.
Phyto Specific as a brand, for over 50 years, has made it its mission to be one of the most innovative beauty brands to date. With their focus being on healthy hair
starting at the scalp and prioritizing botanical ingredients over everything else, they are a great, if not the best option when looking for relaxers for weak and fine hair.
This relaxer is hydroxide-free and is the only relaxer whose active ingredient has a 100% natural origin. This is excellent news, both for people with weak and fine hair and/or sensitive scalps. This is a professional relaxer system so you’ll more than likely only find it in salons.
Filled with a patented formula specifically designed for leaving the hair with more strength and elasticity after relaxing, this relaxer is created with Avlon’s Fiber Strengthening Complex.
What this does is reinforce the hair fiber texture while the chemical process is being done. Individuals in need of a relaxer for weak hair will greatly benefit from this specific relaxer. It’s great for dry scalps and color-treated hair as well! Be on the lookout for this relaxer at your favorite salon for hair that is left strong, straight, and healthy!
A trusted salon brand with a history of delivering great results and keeping hair health at the forefront, MIZANI’s Butter Blend Relaxers are, overall, a great professional brand for relaxing hair.
This formula, in particular, is for fine and fragile hair and it’s color safe, resulting in a gentler chemical process that is good for both the hair and scalp.
MIZANI’s relaxers are created with soothing ingredients such as shea butter, cocoa butter, and honey. It is important to remember that weak hair is susceptible to damage resulting in breakage and excess shedding, this risk increases with the application of chemical processes. Seeking out relaxers such as MIZANI’s Butter Blend will ensure that the integrity of your hair is intact following your chemical process.
Lastly, we have ORS Professional Creme Relaxer specifically for Fine/Medium Hair Textures. Another familiar salon brand, Organic Root Stimulator’s relaxers are credited with infusing incredible moisture into the hair when relaxing while also leaving the scalp in fine condition.
This relaxer also comes in an ‘Extra Strength’ version, but when looking for relaxers for weak and damaged hair, you’ll always want to choose the lowest and gentlest strength. This will guarantee that the chemical process of the relaxer will be effective while also making sure that your hair and scalp aren’t left damaged.
Having weak and fine hair does not mean that you are not allowed to do different things with your hair! However, it does mean that when you do want to change up your look you’ll need to keep the structure and health of your hair a top priority. Weak hair is at a higher risk of becoming extremely unhealthy and it is best to do everything you can to make sure that your hair is protected throughout it all.
