Kid’s hair can sometimes be the tricky to maintain because of their sensitive scalp. Relaxing your child's hair can solve a lot of hassles like knotting and tangling, however using a relaxer needs to be done correctly and it’s important to use the correct one.

The Just For Kids' range offers a host of No-Lye relaxers for your needs. Relaxers for FINE hair, NORMAL hair, and COARSE hair are available in a 225ml and comes with a free Neutralising Shampoo. There’s also 125ml options and a standalone Neutralising Shampoo for your convenience.

The Just For Kids Relaxer is a no irritation, no mix, gentle relaxer that’s suitable for a sensitive scalp as well as hair that ranges from normal to coarse. After applying the relaxer to the hair, leave it on as per the details on the pack. Then using your fingers and lukewarm water, thoroughly rinse off all traces of relaxer with the Just For Kids Neutralising Shampoo - the shampoo neutralises your child’s hair to it’s perfect pH balance. This specifically formulated Neutralising Shampoo includes a special Colour Indicator. This means that if traces of relaxer are still present, the lather will be pink. Only once all traces of relaxer are removed, will the lather be white and the water will run clear.
