I had been all natural for about 2 years (maybe 3), really don't remember. It was fine, but I decided I wanted some length and to loosen the curl. It worked and hubby loves the wavy hair. I really don't like the look. I don't like the "in between" look and I want it straight. I guess I am an afro or straight hair type of lady. I think I was a 4a. I had a curl pattern for sure...it was a tight spring and 80% shrinkage. Looked shorter the longer it got.
My hair is healthy and not falling out. I used the Just for me softner and did not over process. When it was humid, you would never have known I did it. Curly girly appeared (but I had more length).
I want it straight. Can I put a relaxer on it a week after the Just for me? If so, shouldn't the main ingredient of the relaxer be the same one as in Just for Me, Calcium hydroxide (no-lye relaxer)? Or can I use a lye relaxer...which I love because our water here has calcium and I will have to transition to a lye relaxer any way. (Yes, I should have thought of that BEFORE I put on the Just for me, but I forgot all about it being natural so long.
