How To Use A No Lye Hair Relaxer Kit


Getting a no lye relaxer kit is as simple as going to the Walmart or any supermarket. But if bringing it home applying it is another step. We may not look or read for any special directions because we are so caught up in just having more manageable hair.

Learn how to apply a relaxer properly by first reading all instructions to avoid any costly mistakes.

The instructions are in the box waiting for us but somehow all those tiny words and the crazy picture is just too intimidating. So we grab the relaxer and start applying it with our hands hoping not to miss anything.

 Your not worried because you have done this before and your cousin said if you just let the neutralizer and conditioner stay in long there will not be a problem.

Well I just wanted to put this article together to answer any questions that might seem triviling. But let me just say , working with chemicals is serious and there is no silly questions when it comes to your health and safety.



No Lye Relaxer Kit Content
  • Gloves
  • Relaxer
  • Activator
  • Neutralizer Shampoo
  • Stirring Stick
  • Conditioner
  • Hair Base
The gloves in the kit are there to protect your skin on your hands from becoming damaged. You may feel like they get in your way or you may have done a relaxer many times without the gloves. But please stop the harmful behavior,

The chemicals from the relaxer is going through your skin and blood stream, If you are breast feeding you may be causing you baby some harm, this is why some women stop getting relaxers by the 6-7th month before getting relaxer till after baby is born.

The chemicals on your hand can also cause your skin to become really dry and painful from chemical abuse, and worse if you are very sensitive. Why take the risk? What about cancer?

The No Lye Relaxer Kit will also have a bottle of activator to enable the relaxer cream to have strength to relax the hair. The tongue depressor is in the kit to mix those two ingredients thoroughly.

Before any application is started the unshampooed and unscratched scalp and hairline is coated with hair base to protect the skin from becoming irritated from the chemical.

The relaxer kit will also have a neutralizer shampoo to be used after the relaxer is thoroughly rinsed to stop the action of the no lye relaxer from continuing to be active. This can take up to 72 hours to finish the process. If the hair is wet before this time the hair can revert.

The relaxer kit should have a small packet of conditioner to finalize your relaxer experience, do not ignore this step for the sake of time and put in your own leave in conditioner. The treatment in the box is important because of the excess moisture your hair just lost through the process.

If you skip this important step your more fragile hair can break because lost moisture was not replaced. You don't want this , please follow directions and you will be alright.

We smooth and straighten out the hair after the relaxer cream softens and relaxes the hair.
I hope The No Lye Relaxer Kit is no longer a foreign mystery to some you worried about picking it up. We can't always afford the salon or may have opt to save the salon money for a new wardrobe or to pay the light bills.

Good Luck!
