I self-relaxed my hair this afternoon one of the more frequent questions I receive is how do I rinse out my relaxers. No flips or tricks, all I do is lean. I’ve been rinsing out relaxers this way since 2011. With the aid of two plastic caps (and some clips to hold the cap flush against the part between the front and back half of my head) I’m able to rinse out the relaxer and avoid having it run down my body in the process.
In the lefthand pic above, the back half hasn’t been relaxed yet. In the righthand pic, I’ve already relaxed the back half and covered with it with a plastic cap to prevent getting any relaxer/relaxer run-off on it. When rinsing out the front half, I spit it up (left and right), flipping over once I’ve finished one side.
I’ve never gotten the front or back halves wet using the caps/clips because the key is to use fresh caps (because the elastic in the caps will be tight as possible) and avoid disloding the caps from my part between the halves when rinsing out the relaxer. The caps from a seal against my scalp that keeps water all.
That’s all. Relaxer update posts/pics will be up over the weekend!
