Subject: Back 2 Curly-Questions? "Bridge" relaxers Denise or Leslie
Date: June 12, 2007 at 6:10 pm PST

My most recent hairstylist which I love is getting business from me every 6-8 weeks in my attempt to grow out my hair after a TR treatment. I was also considering donating hair to Locks of Love in honor of a very close cousin I just lost recently to cancer. He suggested a type of straightener that will not make my hair Bone straight--only more manageable so I can cut it all off and do a bob cut for now. I remembered your response, Denise, last march and was wondering:
1. Do you have specific names of relaxers that can be used as a "bridge"?
2. I love my hairstylist but I have only had my hair processed by you, Leslie (who I totally trust with processing my hair but may not be able to get to to the city anytime soon), so basically do you think I can trust my new guy? In other words, are these relaxers like the TR treatment that can really mess you up if the stylist doesn't know what they are doing or is it something that can be handled by a somewhat experienced stylist?
3. Will it cause as much damage as a TR treatment?
4. How expensive is it in comparison to TR?

Thanks for your previous help and I appreciate your response in advance for these questions.

Denise's Previous response below:
Carmen,
It is my experience that perming over a TR generally will not work well. If your friend had layers cut, that would help. It also depends whether the TR was a complete success. The greater the success of the TR, the more unlikely that it would perm well.
I will usually do a Bridge relaxer to a client that is growing out a TR.
That way the new growth is relaxed a bit. It is the Bridge between the curly hair and the TR'd hair. I will then suggest keeping the ends trimmed or layering the hair.
Either way, best of luck with the grow out.
