What does it mean to texlax your hair? How do you go about doing this, and what does it look like???

Yep! In fact, there was a good thread started about this a couple of days ago. Seems like quite a people do this. I usually add about 1/4 cup of almond oil to my relaxer (mini tub) prior to using it. Any oil will do, though. I've even heard of some adding conditioner to the relaxer, but oil seems to work well for me. The oil will slow down the action of the relaxer and make it a little less harsh on your hair.carpediem628 said:Sistaslick,
Are you saying you actually pour an oil into the relaxer before relaxing? What kind of oil? I'm about to relax my hair and I want to try it. I never liked bone straight hair. In the past, my hair was extremely healthy and now I realize why. Whenever I'd put my relaxers in, I could not stand to keep it in for too long and always washed it out too soon. Since I've been leaving my relaxers in longer, my hair is super straight (yuck!) and thinning.
