Why Do Chemical Relaxers Cause Hair Loss And Breakage and How Do our Products Help?
Chemical relaxers work by breaking chemical bonds of the hair, and both lye and no lye varieties can burn the scalp. Both lye and “no lye” relaxers are very strong chemicals that work in the same manner by changing the basic structure of the hair shaft.
The chemical relaxer process produces the desired effect of “straighter” hair but leaves the hair in a weakened state. The fact is that chemical relaxers do not promote healthy hair but strip it of what makes it strong in the first place.
On the other hand, even hair that is not chemically processed can be dry and lifeless. This can be due to heat damage or a lack of trace minerals in the hair follicles. Lack of trace minerals can be caused by many factors including stress, harsh shampoos, poor diet and even the environment.
We have created a solution of high-performance products including:

Janelle Beauty® Virgin Coconut Shine – 1oz
While chemical relaxers penetrate the cortex or cortical layer and loosens the natural curl pattern permanently, flat irons work by breaking down the positive hydrogen bonds found in the hair’s cortex temporarily. Both leave the hair in a weakened state. By process of elimination, since we want the versatility of curly to straight to curly™ hair, we prefer the use of the flat-iron but we needed to solve the problem of heat damage.
Coconut oil is the only oil that can withstand high levels of heat without losing its natural protein composition. When used in the hair, it provides a protein protective layer that not only protects the hair from heat damage but it also helps repair existing damage. With the Janelle Beauty® Virgin Coconut Hair Serum, we have created a blend of oils to maximize protection and nourishment. A side-effect is optimal frizz control against the onslaught of humidity to keep your smooth style longer.
