Well, I've been told that any chemical treatments should wait till around 6mo pp. You're hair will begin falling out unfortunately in kinda large amounts and becomes quite brittle after pregnancy hormones clear your system...but you can do it, you just might have to do it again...

im a hairstylist & have told my clients to wait like 1-2 weeks just so your hair gets a little break, let the swelling of the cuticle soften since you lightened it. try a couple protein treatments before getting it done to build up the strength the color took away. but any chemical service is going to damage the integrity of your hair. i know youre not prego anymore but pp hair tends to get dry and fall out. if you havent gone through that & your hair seems healthy even after lightening it, go for it...but w/ caution... those relaxers are no joke! there's one opinion for ya :)

Thank you dear .. My hair is still healthy & thick after I dyed it.. but I had burn it 2 y ago so I am really scared of relax it after the dye thing so I'll probably wait at least 1 month, I am using a regular relaxer with O oil since my hair is not that curly!
