If you are taking your weave out and putting another right back in it is not a good idea to relax your hair. Everyones hair is different but a relaxer weakens the hair and braiding up so soon could cause severe breakage. If I were you I would only relaxe my leave out hair.

I guess I'll wait a few weeks before getting another sew in.

I agree. Relaxing your hair and putting a sew in immediately afterwards...will break your hair.
If you must relax your hair wait a few weeks before weaving it again

i guess it all depends on the person because i usually get a sew-in the day after a relaxer and my hair hasnt suffered any breakage.

If you're going to weave it, why relax it? Only relax any portion that will be showing.

Good for you but its better to be safe than sorry with bald patches It really does depend on the person but regardless, its still not good on the hair even if yours doesnt pop off right away.

I agree. I don't think it's neccessary to relax your hair with every takedown if you're gonna wear weaves back to back. You can use the opportunity to safetly stretch out your relaxers.

No. Just process the back first, with the leave out section separated, and then once finsh, process just the new growth on the leave-out hair.

Don't do it! It is too much stress on your hair.
Black hair is very fragile and needs to be treated as such.
I would not relax, there is no need if you are going to weave it. I recommend a good deep conditioner treatment and trim the ends if need be.
Another thing as well, relaxing the hair line and the section that will be lefted out...will cause breakage. I have seen many sisters with short and uneven hairlines because of this process. Get a hair closure from one of the vendors and protect your hair.

We all love weaves but, not at the expense of own natural hair

I agree . It would be better if you didn't relax the braided hair at all. It grows thicker that way and doesn't become damaged.

No I normally wear a sew-in and a fresh relaxer is not good,however;if you are wearing part of your hair out at the top an edge up is ok.
