Pre relaxer, my own hair

These are pictures of my hair prior to relaxing it.
In these pictures my hair is natural and later texturized
These pictures are in no particular order.



I put a texturizer in my hair. I used the motions mild oil relaxer. I just left it on for a few minutes and didn't smooth it much. Then I washed. I was able to comb my hair so much easier!!My hair had less shrinkage with the texturizer.

    I like the look of your hair... I am looking for a texturizer.  It has been three years since I've gone natural and have about 6-8 inches of hair, the problem is that the product I purchased is not to be used on colored/ dyed hair.  Do you know of a product that is safe for color treated hair?   Wanting/NEEDING  a texturizer badly.  Please  help if  u  can.. thanks

    I am loving it. i have tried many times to go natural and then texturized but my hair is sooooo thick i get discouraged and frustrated about not being able to style it alot that i end up perming it. After looking at your hair I may try again.

    What type of texturizer did you use in this photo?

    Wow that looks lovely!! that is SO the look I want!!!! I'm transitioning (9 months in) and am debating on getting a texturiser. May I ask do you have any regrets about going back to a relaxer?


    sometimes i do regret it because i miss my hair thickness....i have went from relaxer to natural and back to a relaxer and natural again so many knows what may happen next with my hair.....

    this is BEAUTIFUL! I had no idea that you could use a textureizer on longer hair. Ive only seen it done on short hair but this is simply stunning///////////////////////////////////////////////////////

    thanks i often wish that i can go back to this easy wash and go style but i can't anymore since i relaxed.......sigh...........

    I love your hair godsflower!! its soo cute!!

    i was wondering, since my hair is relaxed and too straight, if i use a texturizer will it come out like urs? ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

    thanks girl....since you have a relaxer and it is bone straight a texturizer will not work on your have to grow it out and become natural first. a texturizer will only loosen your natural curl pattern and since your natural curl is gone, the texturizer won't work.
