Hi

I am a foster carer and I have a young girl currently living with me who has recently had her braids taken out.  I've been told that I now need to put a texturizer on it.

I am not familiar with black hair, so I wondered if somebody could please explain what texturizer does and why she would need it, as I would have thought that it can't be good for her hair?

Can I just leave her hair as it is without a texturizer?

Thanks.

you most certainly can. i think it's bad advice that they've given you. no one's hair needs a texturizer. it's a chemical that loosens the curl pattern of black hair, making it straighter. usually in the process, though, it weakens it and makes it much more susceptible to breaking and splitting, especially if done or maintained incorrectly.

Hi littlebabybug.

Thanks very much for that.  I will leave it as it is then until she has it braided again next time.  It did seem odd to be putting chemicals in a young girl's hair.

Thanks again!

No one needs a texturizer, it is a want.  It is usually used by those who want to have easier to manage hair but still want some flexibility in texture.
