In every issue, SBH Hair Advice columnist Jacqueline Tarrant answers your questions and helps solve some of your biggest hair concerns. Have a question you need answered? Post it in the comment section below or in the “Ask A Stylist” section of our website: SBH ASK A STYLIST.

I want to grow longer hair without having my coarse, thin mane relaxed because I end up straightening it every day. I also don’t want to go Natural because maintaining my Natural hair is difficult. What do I need to do to get a curly look? Should I get a texturizer, or should I get one of those perms with the curl rods?     —Destiny

The texturizer will slightly reduce the Natural curl pattern in your hair and can help make it more manageable. The curly perm will create a specific curl pattern with the chemical application and the rods. The choice is yours to make. However, I will say that that the texturizer may give you a little more styling flexibility.
