For the longest, I used Beautiful Beginnings Kiddie Relaxer. Then I graduated to Motions went back to BB and ended my relaxing "career" using ORS No Lye. (All of the above relaxers were no lye too). I was a self relaxer and I left it on for exactly 20 mins because to me, before BHM, my NG was "coarse". And I also relaxed bone straight, never texlaxed.

Between 10 and 15 minutes.  My natural hair is really, really small tight curls, but I dont want to get rid of them completely.  I just like to loosen them up. I dont really want my hair to be bone straight, so I never leave relaxers in for the full time.

I'm ashamed to admit this, but when I got relaxers my stylist would leave the relaxer on my head until it started burning. At the time, I thought that was an indicator that the relaxer was working. She had me believing so many things that I later found out wasn't true. I'm glad to say that I don't have her caring for my hair anymore.

I always used Lye Affirm relaxers.

Ors lye
I just did a relaxer and it took me about 20 mintues to apply and then I smooth it out for 10 and let it sit for 7 minutes. I like bone straight hair, but my hair never gets bone straight. I did not burn at all.

I am in just about the same boat. I have been transitioning from relaxed to natural since May 2010! When I used to get relaxers, I would get it every 3 months, I would do it myself, I would leave it on until it started burning (about 20-30 minutes)?, also I used a lye relaxer!
