How do Chemical Relaxers Work on the Hair?

Answer

We all love our flowing hair. But often wonder how it works. A perm with lye makes the hair straight by relaxing the strands of hair. A perm without lye (curly perm) does the opposite it caused the strands to draw up and gives a wave or curl pattern to each strand.

The chemical in relaxers, whether it be lye or no lye types, are strong enough and even potent enough to transform the original hair shaft in a straight look. Although it may give the person the look they want, they are also damaging their hair with the chemicals. You can find more information here: www.ccmr.cornell.edu
