to my knowledge....they are one in the same and the difference is in what people decide to call it.  saying "texturizer" is much shorter than "a relaxer that doesn't stay in longer than 5 mins."  Smile

actually, that is not correct.

a texturizer is a mild, very mild relaxer, and depending on your texture, can be left on (application time included) 10-35mins.

while a relaxer, if left for a very short period of time, just to loosen the texture, and not straighten it, is called texlaxing.

I have shoulder length texlaxed hair.  I like it bc when it's warm I can wear it curly with no effort.  There really is no diff chemical wise, but the process is different because it is only left on long enough to remove some of the kink.

i'm gonna have to agree to disagree, right here. i had never heard of the term 'texlaxing' before i came to this forum and based on what i've read, it is the same as a texturizer.  meaning, both methods are applied for shorter periods of time (than a perm) in order to loosen the curl pattern and give the hair texture (as opposed to being permanently straight).

i'm going to speak on my experiences and observations in upscale salons: i wore a texturizer for almost two years and it was immediately rinsed/washed out after being fully applied to my head. i noticed that girls getting full on relaxers/perms would sit for 10 - 35 minutes. that's a stark contrast to the 5 minutes i did with a texturizer; which is how my stylist(s) referred to it.
i'm unconvinced that texlaxing/texturizers are two different methods. they seem to be two different names for very mild perms that give people 'texture' and more options when styling, as opposed to bone straight.
again...that's based on my experience, observations, and opinions...

Nigerian Queen are you saying that the formula for texturisers ie; ones labelled as such on the box is slightly different from a relaxer. I can see some logic in this no offense to any texlaxed heads but the majority I've seen just look underprocessed vs texturized heads which actually look curly...it could just be the amount of time it's been left in for though.

texurizing= is the use of a Texurizer to loosen the curl pattern.(elongating the curl.)
texlaxing= is the use of a Relaxer to loosen the texture. (loosening the overall bulk of the hair)

both resulting in two different outcomes.

texturizers and relaxers are similar but the texturiser is a much much milder version jus like Nigerian Queen said.  no one relaxes their hair with a texturiser cos it wnt get u the right results. a relaxer is more concentrated, more powerful, designed to give u bone straight hair. some ladies use the relaxer to tex lax... but that doesnt mean its the exact same thing as the texturiser. similar but different strengths and thus differnt results.
