Ok as some of you might now, i am going to be texlaxed from my next relaxer on… What is texlaxed ?
Tex = texture, laxed = relaxed
Basically you relax your hair but you don’t get it as straight as you do with a normal relaxer !That way you keep some texture in your hair, some thickness also.
3 ways to texlax :
- buy a so called “Texturizer” on the market
- add some oil to your regular relaxer
- leave the relaxer on your hair for a shorter amount of time
And this last one is were i will stand.
Why do you want texturized hair :
my main reason is to get stronger hair over the time, and mainly thicker hair. I know i have been in love with my natural new growth for the past year, and when i say in love i mean MADLY in love ! Not to the point of getting natural though !
Will you trim your relaxed ends :
def not ! If i was going to natural, i would BC (big chop), no hesitation, but here it is only about slowly getting rid of the bone straight relaxed ends so that is ok. PLUS ! My ultimate main goal is too have healthy thick BSL (Bra Strap Length) hair so yeah, i don’t care about getting ends off…
How long does it take :
Depending on your own hair growth rate, and on your actual hair length, it might take from 1 year to 3 years to completely grow your head texlaxed. I plan to go for about 2 years, as my hair is already almost at BSL.
Products you’ll use :
Stay tunned for this one 🙂
i’m going Naturel
check out my blog voor the smal chop 🙂
Yayyy, for texlaxing! Similar to your incident a couple months ago, I unintentionally texlaxed with ORS relaxer in September 2010 after a 6 month stretch. I decided to stick with it since then and will be doing my next texlax in 3 weeks at 21 weeks post. I must say it is not the easiest thing to deal with 3 textures, but my hair has never looked so full and healthy as this. Good luck Nunaa…be blessed!
Hi Nunaa I went in my inbox to look for the message from Miss Kibibi and she says she uses Affirm Fibreguard Mild relaxer to Texlax. Apparently it preserves some of the hairs tensile strength and does not completely break down the hair.
Hey girl, thanks a loot for all the time you take for me, hope to meet you this weekend right? lol
I actually thought you were natural? I saw one of your youtube videos where you said you would go natural some time last year so are you natural or texlaxed lol I just found this site so yeah that may be a dumb question
Hi, i said i would go natural one day in my life… now i am on my way to texlax 🙂
no dumb questions so far, lol
