Or does it really depend on how long you leave it on? Right now I am contemplating texlaxing with Elasta QP, ORS Lye or No Lye. Any feedback, suggestions would be appreciated!!!
Alot of girls, including myself, have had major problems with no-lye relaxers. I was using them exclusively for years and my hair was damaged and thinning , and I have really thick hair. I began goin to the salon for two years and transition from no-lye to Nairobi lye relaxer. My hair is much healthier and I have gotten my thickness back. And since LHCF, its even thicker. I am transitioning from bone strait to texlax and sticking to lye relaxers.

I think will also refrain from relaxing bone straight because my hair is so fine I want to retain what little thickness I have. So for the next relaxer I will start texlaxing.
ETA: for ladies who are experiencing burning with Lye relaxers, add a little EVOO or Almond Oil to the relaxer. That works a bunch. I prefer Lye because it is better on the hair and less drying. I can definitely tell the difference in my hair!
Mizani BB is great. I loved it. Still got my lovely curlies as well. Hair is so moisturized compared to when i used ORS No-lye which left me dry with breakage and split ends.Thanks for the reply. I have been debating over Mizani Butter Blend, Phyto, Elasta QP, and now ORS. But I needed to make a decision this week on one or the other so I could place the order for one of the first two. Since ORS is found in most BSS and is cheaper to boot, I will go with them and see how I like.
Any other opinions????
Co-signing with you Amarech, I can't imagine what took me so long to switch to lye relaxers. No lye left my hair thin, lifeless, dull, brittle and dry. Since I switched to lye, my hair does have a lot more shine, retains a lot more moisture and has a lot more life to it.Lye. Hands down. I used to texlax with no lye and my hair was dry as the desert. The condition of my hair wasn't all that great either. My hair retains moisture soo much better since I've switched to lye. It's shinier too.
Apparently if you add oil to your relaxer you'll be able to texlax because it lowers the pH somewhat. I'll be trying that on my next touch up, whenever that will be......
