I texturized my hair for the first time on Saturday and its a bit under-texturized. I used Just For Me Softener and left it on my hair for 5 minutes before washing it out. I was completely natural 4a/3c and the 4a loosened up just slightly. My hair is past my bra strap so it was a little challenging racing against the clock with processing it.
I wonder if I should redo it in a few weeks but not sure if I should use the same product or try something else on my hair. In 34 years this is my first time ever having a relaxer on my hair (lifelong natural) so I am very new to this though I did a lot of research before starting. This was a calcium hydroxide relaxer but wonder if I should switch to lye instead but need to do more research to make sure its safe now I used the calcium hydroxide.
1. How long should I wait before trying again?
2. Could I use a lye relaxer over no lye or should I stick with what I've used already.
