What A Relaxer Does To Your Hair

A nice video I came across from GreenBeautyChannel on Youtube.

She goes in depth to show just how damaging the chemicals in relaxers are, in the start of the video she does a test on a strand of her own shed hair, leaving it in the relaxer solution for 8 hours and ended up completely dissolving the hair.

O_O

crazy.

I found this video to be extremely informative and well done.

More than enough reasons to keep me focused on staying natural.
