Help: Hair rejecting relaxers - Why?

pipedreamerpipedreamer Registered Users Posts: 1
've been getting relaxers since I was a small child. My mother akways applies them for me and I have never had any serious problems with them.

But for the past 2 years (I'm 24), they've stopped working. I still use regular strength relaxers,but I've changed brands and they still do not take. Before my roots would get pretty straight; now my roots remain fuzzy and frizzy even when my hair is wet and soaked with conditioner. I've got about 3-4 inches of fuzzy roots (I cannot tell if its new growth or hair that failed to relax).

Why is my hair rejecting relaxers now?

    Maybe the brand change does a difference.

    Well...relaxers damage your hair in the long run. Your hair was bound to give up one day, it's just "tired". Especially since you started from a young age, your hair probably can't handle it anymore. You need to regain the health otherwise it's going to break
