Relaxer Maintenance

Deep Conditioning Relaxed Hair

Next, your hair needs plenty of moisture, not only to balance out the protein, but to keep it from becoming more brittle. Deep condition at least once per week, using the low heat of a dryer if you can during the conditioning treatment because this helps the moisturizing properties penetrate your hair's cuticles more effectively.

Avoid sulfate-rich shampoos, which is good advice for black hair anyway, but definitely try sulfate-free options if you haven't before.
