Default What is the difference between Texlax a texturizer and a relaxer

Ladies
I am new here and I am trying to figure all this out. I need cliff notes to get through all the info on these boards lol. (this is great ) I just wanted to know the difference between texlax(I am not sure I am spelling it right), relaxer or texturizer. I currently have a relxer and I want to get rid of it so that I can have somewhat of a wavy manageable look is that a texturizer or is that a texlax and can I have a texlax eventhough I still have relaxed hair. I am due for a relaxer but I want to try something different can someone help me. If I get a texturizer can I do it at home. Phew I am so lost.

Girl, IMO a texlax (I hate that word) and a texturizer are the same thing. They both loosen the texture but don't make you hair completely straight. Folks can say what they wanna but that is how I feel about it!!! Q

IMO....
it's probably a similar chemical but it's more about the time it's left on...
texturizer will smooth the frizz without removing the curl pattern, a texlax relaxes the curl pattern slightly, you'd still have body but it would be on the straighter side, and a relaxer is when you almost completely or completely remove the curl pattern acheiving the straightest styles.

I agree.

Honestly, I never say I am texlaxed unless I am on this board - just an easy way to lt someone know that my hair is not bone straight.

As far as I am concerned I am relaxed and I think most "texlaxed" ladies feel the same way.

I am one that does not do it on purpose though. My hair just doesn't go bone straight.

But, my hair is relaxed no matter what.

You explained it very well.

OP...you can buy an actual texturizer. I wouldn't put that in my hair. So it's not the same as texlaxing. With Texlaxing (Yes, a made up word on here I am sure) you leave the relaxer in your hair for a shorter time period. But don't go to a BSS and buy a texturizer thinking you are texlaxing.Not the same. Texlaxing and relaxing.....same chemical.

In the words of Tee's daughter K, NEVER, EVER, EVERLASTING. I feel if you put something on your hair that permanently changes your texture but doesn't make it straight, that is a texturizer plain and simple. It can be lye, no lye, in a box, off the shelf, from the ground, grown on trees, whatever. If it changes the texture it is a texturizer. Tis all.

OT: I have over 9000 posts now!!! Q

Queeny, you are too much.

I personally don't think of the natural stuff as texturizers. . .
Like the baking soda or the lime & milk or the caramel treamtents that are meant to loosen the curl pattern.

I think my view is closer to Tee's explanation.
