Fact or fiction? If you relax your hair it will grow faster.

If you relax your hair it will grow faster.

This is not true! You hair looks longer when it’s relaxed because it’s stretched to the maximum by the relaxing chemicals.

You will notice that your regrowth does not look as long as the relaxed hair.

This is because the regrowth is your hair in its natural form.

Essence Magazine compares relaxed hair to a stretched elastic band and adds that relaxing your hair can actually cause it to lose its elasticity, making it more susceptible to breaking.
