Stephanie’s RELAXER UPDATE! ?

November 23, 2015

Hi Sizzelle Town! After about 6 long months of stretching, I finally got my hair relaxed and oh am I loving it ? ! I’ve been a bit weary about relaxing my hair again because as I mentioned previously, my last relaxer left me with a mixture of textures; my ends were bone straight and the back was so under-processed, it was practically natural. The front was nicely textured and I…

Transitioning from bone straight relaxed hair to ‘texlaxed’ hair

January 27, 2015

What is texlaxing? This is basically intentionally underprocessing your relaxer because you want to avoid hair that is too straight (otherwise called bone straight hair). Why texlax? Texlaxing reduces the potential damage caused by relaxers and helps hair look fuller. This is especially for ladies with fine hair strands or scanty hair. How to texlax There are several ways you can achieve semi-processed hair and if you prefer, you can even…

I hate relaxers!

July 29, 2014

Yes, I hate relaxers!! Ok…the truth is I have a love-hate relationship with relaxers. I just had one done two weeks ago and I have mixed feelings about it. I’ll tell you why: Reason 1. Thinning strands: I am happy with the state of my ‘texlaxed’ hair now: I already have low to moderate density hair strands which are fine in diameter and I don’t want my hair to become…

My last relaxer day with results – Fadesola

July 17, 2014

One of the reasons I don’t usually have a relaxer lying around is to prevent ‘on-impulse’ relaxer day. I swear when I am deep into my stretch and I am approaching relaxer day, I try to keep my mind off the relaxer day hair not just because I was battling tangles but just to have my hair “tamed” or less work for me. I had originally planned to relax my…

Love for my daring self * the part of me that wants to just try new things like a thunder bolt* Hate for the part of me that ends up feeling wasted after the adrenalin level is reduced….

Hair relaxers – what you need to know! (Part 2)

February 25, 2014

Differences between Lye relaxers and no-lye relaxers Lye relaxers are gentler on the hair but burn scalp faster than no-lye relaxers. Due to the lower amount of straightness, they usually break less disulfide bonds. No-Lye relaxers often produce straighter results and are gentler on the scalp than Lye relaxers. Lye relaxers are usually preferred by professional hair stylists No-lye relaxers are usually sold to everyone and can be found easily….
