    I just apply my relaxer and leave it on for the minimal time like 13-15 mins total to get it texlaxed. I use a mild relaxer. Haven't tried mixing anything in, but next time I would like to try adding shea butter or amla oil to see if it makes a difference. Hopefully others will chime in with replies...

    I apply the relaxer, without adding anything to it. I leave it on for up to 12 minutes (including application and smoothing) and then rinse.

    I apply the relaxer, smooth, and leave it on for a total of 15 mins. I don't add anything to it. I use Affirm Firberguard Sensitive Scalp No Lye.

    Add 4 capfuls of extra virgin olive oil to one 15 ounce jar of relaxer. Apply, do not smooth.

    I do like a straighter look now, so I apply and smooth for a total of 19 minutes.

    I've never mixed anything.

    My best results were with a mild relaxer. I use Elasta QP Mild. It doesn't matter if I smooth it or the length of time I leave it on because my hair won't get straight anyway. Not that I leave it on for a long time. Just saying that it gives the perfect texlax results without the concern of whether or not it will be bone straight because I left it on for 5 min. longer.

    When I use regular relaxer I don't smooth and I have to make sure not to leave it on for more than 10 min.

    So what do you think the answer to that is??
    I apply and smooth my relaxer for a total of 15 min. then rinse. I use Mizani Butter Blend Regular. My hair turns out manageable and not bone straight.
