I've had relaxed hair since high school <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> and as far as I know, you have to either cut off the relaxed portions of the hair or wait until it grows out. I'm sure there is someone here who would be able to explain it better, but the chemicals in a relaxer permanently change the texture of the hair and strip it of its' curl pattern. I'd be very, very surprised if there was a way to "unrelax" your hair. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Good luck!

salaam,<br><br>
sorry the only way to get rid of a relaxer is to cut it off. I didnt think you were of african decent. Well I dont want to get to political but relaxers can be very damaging. And if you hair is not that curly it can cause it to fall out as youve mentioned.<br><br>

Be patient sister and grow it out. In the mean time you can infuse your hair with conditioners and herbs such as jojoba or avocado oil to heal and help your hair.<br>
My mother relaxed my hair around when I was a teen. I no longer wear it that way. I found that after a while w/out relaxing it will become dry and try to break off so must find a really good conditioner and treatment system. My hair did return to it's natural curly pattern rather quickly IMO(it will depend on your hair). If you plan on wearing your hair naturally curly check out<br><a href="http://www.curls.biz" target="_blank">www.curls.biz</a><br>
I use their products on my myself and children.
