The difference between Relaxers, Perms & Texturizers?

We offer a variety of the best relaxers, perms and texturizers… but what’s the difference? Relaxers chemically straighten afro hair; perms add curls or waves to your afro hair and texturisers gently soften frizzy Afro hair.

How long Relaxers last for?

Relaxing is a long-lasting afro hair smoothing service that smooths and straightens afro hair until either the hair grows out or you have a haircut. Much like when you have coloured your hair, when your hair grows you will need to have a ‘touch up’ service.

Our relaxers vary in strength, depending on your hair, and we also use conditioning relaxers.  When relaxing your hair, we take a number of factors into consideration such as your curl type, hair length, and the condition of your hair. These factors are necessary in helping us determine what relaxer suits your hair type.

Depending on the condition of your hair, our stylists may suggest a deep conditioning hair treatment to further strengthen, moisturise and protect your hair.

ORS Relaxers

Historically, olive oil has been used as a healing elixir, rich in essential fatty acids that impart moisture directly to the hair and scalp.
