This may be a dumb question but I have noo idea what these are? Is it the same as a relaxer but it makes your hair curly? I tried searching but the search button isn't working...

Thanks ladies!

Texturizer is a product, a mild version of a relaxer
Texlax is a term they use when using a relaxer to texturize the hair.
 
The correct term to use that I was always taught was texturizing the hair.
And you can texturize the hair using a texturizer or a relaxer or another chemical or some natural products that will lightly straighten the hair.
 
Some people texturize their hair to release a little curl or a lot of curl but want to keep a curl pattern so they can easily manage the hair.
 
Some people texturizer 3  times a year, twice a year, once a year and then there are those that will texturize when they get enough new growth which might be every 6-8 weeks.
 
Some people can texturize just enough to blend with their natural hair where its hard to tell whether or not they have had a chemical process.
 
Hope this helps

I can just answer the texlax part.  Basically, it is people using mild relaxers (example Just for Me, or a another mild relaxer with oil added to dilute the chemical, or just a plain mild relaxer) ....you also do not leave it on your hair long enough to fully straighten it.  hence, texlax.....just relaxing the texture of the new growth, but not all the way straight.  if that makes sense.

I'm beginning to think the term "texturizer" is a tad misleading.  If you have a really tight coiled natural texture, it won't give you "mixed folks" hair (of course I'm making a general statement here but most people know what I mean when I say that).  If your hair has already been relaxed to where it won't have a natural curl anymore, it won't give you any, which Ally said.  So it's is only a mild relaxer.

Not exactly a process for just new growth.  I had been natural for nearly 2 yrs and was unable to manage my hair very easily.  So I chose to TexLax (de-coil) the tightly coiled hair to a softer more manageable state.  Since it was alllllll never chemically processed hair, I Had to apply the TexLaxer from root to tip.

Yes. If you relax you can leave your relaxer in for less time and your will look fuller, have more body. and be healthier than if you leave it in until its straight. You will be transitioning though so depending on the texture of your hair you may have issues detangling or even experience some breakage where the two textures meet if you don't treat your hair well,
