This is my How-to website for applying a chemical relaxer to hair. This website will also provide you with a lot of information about the history of black hair care and different resources that will help you to become an expert on African-American hair. Navigating through my website, you will be educated about all aspects of African-American hair. I will be discussing the history of the African people’s hair type, who invented relaxers, how to apply a relaxer, and an interview from a licensed stylist.


I am an African-American woman and I have a chemical relaxer that alters the curl-pattern of my hair. My hair is course like the first picture below before I apply a chemical relaxer to my hair. After I apply a relaxer my hair, it is straightened out to look like this. Throughout my website you will learn how to chemically alter your hair so that it goes from tight/coarse to straight/silky.
