I only relax twice a year...every six months. You CAN go without a perm for a very long time...the only deal is that many people simply don't WANT to.

I agree with  Renata22, I only relax my hair twice a year. I find my hair grows better and there is less breakage. 
To all my international sistas, thanks I appreciate your help.

I am hairstylist of 20years and it depends on the person hair, if it thicks and you go a long time such as 10, 15 weeks and beyond you will get a lot of shredding, and it even breaks most of the time.The line of demarcation can be a killer on hair so you have to be very careful. The person life style their climate, and so many other factors come into play with relaxer. 95% of my clients are press and curl. I really do dislike relaxers.

Well I went 2+ years without getting one and I know if I feel the need again I can do it LOL. But for right now I get a touch-up done huhmmmm every other month or season (sorry it all depends on how I feel).

Doesn't it also depend upon hair type.  For example someone with fine 3a/b hair can probably go longer than someone with say thick 4a/b hair.   I dunno.

I have two months to go and that will be my first 6 month stretch.  I don't straighten my newgrowth I just put my hair in a style when I go to bed that will put tension on my new growth or a style that will flatten it.

For some reason it is hard for me to stretch my relaxers because If I go past 8 weeks my hair starts to break off badly. Evertime I comb my hair I see long strands with no white bulb so I think its breakage.  Does anyone know what I could do to help me stretch my relaxers without the bad breakage.

I have really coarse, thick hair. The trick is that I don't get it relaxed really straight. Texlaxed, I think they call it. I love it. I love natural hair, but I just couldn't handle the length and thickness of it, so I had my hair done like this so that I could have the kinkyness of it (even if it's not as much) without all the bulk.

loveya4ever, is that you in the pic? If so, your hair is gorgeous. Now I have 3 people on this site to envy: you, Pokahontas, and Phoenix.
 
I seriously can't wait until MOST black women have long, gorgeous hair.

It's been almost five months for me.  Am I shedding?  Yes.  Am I glad that I'm laying off the chemcials and learning how to work with my hair's texture?  Yes.  Smile  I won't have processed hair forever, so I gotta learn to care for the real stuff now.  Wink

Thanks, tffy.
 
Straight and dry, IT IS NOW OFFICALLY BRA STRAP LENGTH!!! Air-dried "puffy", it looks a little longer than shoulder length.
 
And can you imagine how much longer it will look when I get it relaxed in another 4 months or so.
 
I'm going to lose a few centimeters this weekend, because I'm getting a trim. My stylist only "dusts" my hair and doesn't even take a half inch, so I'm lucky!!!
 
I wish you all could visit my stylist.
