So I've been relaxing my hair for most of my life then I decided to transition and then fully go natural. So I've been dealing with my actual hair for about 9 months now since the big chop so I would say that I have almost 2 years of natural hair growth. At first I was ok with wearing weaves and single braids because it was winter but now that it's getting hot I can't wear them and I can't deal with my hair because it's not easily manageable nor is it easy to maintain without slapping on a wig. I should also add that I do spend time to take care of my hair and I have a set regime, I just don't have the time or the patients to do it anymore. I also don't like any natural hair styles besides the puff. At first I was considering going back to a relaxer and then I heard about texterizers or the term "textlaxed" and I did some research and now I'm considering trying it. Based on the YouTube videos I've seen, I'm not 100% sure what a texterizer is because I thought it would make my hair curly and more defined or wavy, but that all depends on your hair type or at least that's what I got form YouTube. Also the term "Textlaxed" I actually thought it was the term used to describe my hair type since I would no longer be natural but again from watching YouTube videos I've seen girls who are relaxed and are under processing their relaxers to become "texlaxed". So I decided to come here and figure out once and for all what a texterizer actually is to finally end my confusion.

texlaxer is like a relaxer that's underprocessed so it only slightly loosens the curl. Loosened curls do not mean defined or bigger though, it would just make them looser. So if you aren't getting definition now, you won't get it with a texlaxer either.

Before resorting texlaxing, i think you should look into this regimen and give it a try, the max hydration method. Look through the post, there are a lot of before and after pictures there.

http://forum.blackhairmedia.com/the-max-hydration-methodfrom-my-other-post_topic368937.html

Once you reach max hydration:

Root to tip definition ON PRODUCT FREE HAIR
Root to tip definition in wash and gos
Moveable shakable hair, even when dry
Length retention, easily
Styles last longer and look better
Soft, pliable hair
Enhanced moisture retention
Detangling is easier, in fact my hair is perpetually detangled from rolling and bunning during step 2
single strand knots & split ends rarely occur

I have been where you are, but have turned my hair around completely. here is my 4c hair's transformation using MHM regimen. The reality is a texturizer will never get you these results. The problem is moisture, not your curl pattern. Note i haven't reached total max hydration yet.

It has the same ingredients as a relaxer, it's basically a mild relaxer that you leave on for a shorter time. If you have very kinky hair & no curl pattern or very tiny coils, using it will not give you Traci Ross looking hair, you'll be disappointed. Also it's no guarantee that it will give you "uniform" hair, say your hair does get to the wavy/loose curly state with it, it may not be the same pattern all over your head. Straight pieces, curly, wavy.

But any who if you texlax PLEASE go to a professional salon.

Thanks and there was no way I was going to try and do anything on my own. Can't let these 2 years go to waste.
