I did my first texlax after being natural for 3.5 years on January 25, 2013.
My stylist used design essential relaxer in regular and just let it sit for about 14 minutes with minimal smoothing.
I'm toying with the idea of self texlaxing on my future touch ups (as I prefer to DIY vs. paying
I've been watching videos and reading up on the process. My first touch up will be in May, so I have plenty of time to get well prepared.
So far my "regimen" has been to wash it at least 1x a week, use a mild protein DC and then DC with moisture.
blowdry with each wash and still use majority "natural" products a sulfate free shampoo and my staple oils (hemp, apricot kernel, wild growth, red palm oil).
My plan is to texlax after stretch 16 weeks.
If you feel like texlaxing, do your research and go for it!
So far I am beyond happy with my hair.
If I feel like going natural again in the future, I'll def do it again.
