Relaxer Prepping - Two days before

My relaxer is in two days and this is what I did tonight to help prepare: I lightly detangled my hair, sprayed Sta-Sof-Fro to my roots/newgrowth, and heavily moisturize/seal. 

Sta-Sof-Fro is an old school product that I remember seeing under the bathroom sink as a little girl.  It is very moisturizing, but too much can cause mushy hair (like the time I used it as a leave-in conditioner).  It does a great job of softening my newgrowth, so it will be more manageable on relaxer day.  I spray my roots two days before to ensure that my roots and scalp have enough time to dry completely before the relaxer application.  I buy Sta-Sof-Fro from Walmart.

Traycee - I think my dad still uses it lol. My mom said she used it on her "soul" (that's what they called afros in Jamaica) lol.

Hairs2Me- try Sally's if there's one close to you. Or a regular beauty supply store.

Anon- breakage can be caused by several things. What type of moisturizer do you use, what type of treatment is done at the salon (ex. Protein or moisturizing), how often do you comb your hair, what styling products do you use. See what I mean?
