i don't think it ever really comes out unless you cut your hair and start from scratch. because once you relax your hair you will always have the growth and the straight ends. after i relax my hair i wash it every other 2 weeks that way it won't be affected as much. i think once chemicals get into your hair they change the chemistry of it. if you cut it and then start braiding then its a different story.
The relaxer does not wear off . You have to grow out your hair & get it trimmed regulary . I have about 3 inches of regrowth & the rest of my hair which is at my shoulders is relaxed . I've had mine for about a year , & my hair is getting unmanageable so i straighten it everyday so my hair looks fried & disguisting .
