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.
