Spread the petroleum jelly around your scalp which prevent harsh relaxing chemical from burning into delicate skin and avoid using any the jelly on your hair. Divide the hair into 4-5 sections and apply the relaxer over the hair. The strands of hair must be covered close to the root till the end of the hair.
