Relaxing hennaed hair
I've read in several places that it is OK to use a relaxer on hennaed hair, BUT I've used Rainbow henna which I've learned later is questionable on quality. I usually use a mix of Rainbow and Jamila cause I'm trying to use up the Rainbow. My hair is 2C - very thick. I want to use a relaxer like Pink Oil made for black hair. I've done this before with some success even though I don't have a black hair type (My mom is biracial black white and dad is Indian). Though my hair is sorta dry now from the hennaing. Is it OK to use a relaxer over hennaed hair? How long should I wait, if so? The Rainbow I bought is Red - it says it's just lawsonia henna, anyway.
