Question: I want to use a hair relaxer, but I had a caesarean section only three weeks ago. Are there any side-effects?
Answer: Having a caesarean section does not make you sensitive to the chemical relaxer and therefore there are no contraindications between your recent operation and relaxing your hair. However, you may need to ask your hairdresser if your hair is strong enough to relax. Following pregnancy the hair can temporarily become weak and thinner, and more vulnerable to breakage. Relaxing the hair may not be a sensible idea during such a time.
