Relaxing the hair means permanently altering a curly or coily hair texture to a straight one. The active ingredient is usually sodium, calcium, lithium or guanidine hydroxide. We use the Design Essentials conditioning relaxer system. We only relax the hair 65 to 75% so we do not compromise hair strength. We have different strengths for regular, coarse, fine, coloured, sensitive scalp or multi-cultural textured hair. After a consultation, we customize a specific relaxer for you. We use protective treatments to protect your scalp from any discomfort and also to protect any previously relaxed hair from overlapping. We also include a deep conditioning reconstructor treatment with all relaxer services. The whole process from start to finish takes 2 to 3 hours depending on thickness and length of hair.
