Those with 4c normal to hi porosity, who decided to relax, texlax or texturize again, how is that going now with your new lhcf knowledge? How long have you been back on the creamy crack ? Can't believe I am really considering this again.... ____________ *.~.*Sent from a distant Galaxy in the Unicorn-verse*.~.*
4c texlaxed previously natural gal here!!
I texlaxed November 2012 after five years natural because I was just fed up. my shrinkage was overwhelming and consumed my life (I'm dramatic) and I kept my hair stretched 99% of the time for that reason, so I wouldn't have to deal with my hair.
Being texlaxed has been great, but not without it's setbacks. I've had to learn my hair over again, but of course, the knowledge I previously obtained was very useful, as I still have a very similar regimen to natural me (ie. washing my hair in plaited sections); the biggest difference is the lack of shrinkage, which honestly, was my biggest enemy.
I did experience setbacks as is normal when you are learning. When I first texlaxed, I had a lot of residual damage from from how I treated my hair when I was natural that I had to get rid of (ssk, left over splits, etc).
Lastly, being fine-haired and highly porous has made getting a hold on my split ends difficult, but I am determined to prove to myself I can achieve waist length as a texlaxed head.
That was a lot. HTH. Lol
