You guys I was pretty concerned that i had straightened my hair waaaay to much. But today I neutralized again, then cowashed with my wen and let my hair airdry. I think my texlax came out just right which makes me now 100% relieved about this whole thing.

Peep the pics:

I promise I won't post anymore hair pics for a while. I just had to share my excitement though.

I think texlaxing truly is the best of both worlds!!

How long did you let the relaxer sit on your hair? Did you mix in anything with the relaxer? This is beautiful.
I parted my hair in 4 sections. Applied a handful of tressemme conditioner to each section. I put about 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil into the perm and mixed. Then started the application process. The perm sat on my hair for a total of maybe 13-14 minutes start to finish. The back row of my hair, left side, is a smidge too straight for my liking because it was on that area the longest (i think my back area was like 3c already). I used the Silk Elements regular, for my touch up in a few months i'm going to use the Mild.

Great job! :up:

It's funny just how much variety there is (texlaxed or not) within the type 4's.

My hair could never look quite like that. It's very pretty :yep:

Girl, you gave me a fright! I don't think I've ever been called out in a thread:lol:. But I'm glad I was right, I just had a feeling. When I texturized, my hair was just hanging tough, all elongated and what not, so I put a scarf on and ran some errands while it finished drying, by the time I got home I was like:blush:, my hair had shrunked up real tough, almost as much as it does when it was natural, that's why I had a feeling yours would too.

It is soooo pretty! :yay: Bre!
