Should you relax your hair before braiding?

When you get a relaxer before getting braids, remember that your hair is not as strong anymore and the weight of the braids will pull and [cause] breakage at the root. I usually recommend waiting for about 3 -6 weeks after a relaxer before getting braids so that you will have at least half an inch of strong new growth.
