Q
I have never put chemicals on my hair, so it is still Natural and thick. I usually braid my mane, but I’m getting tired of doing it and I’m not a fan of full weaves. I’ve heard a little about texturizers and was wondering what they are and whether I should try one on my hair? —Keena

A
A texturizer is a mild form of a relaxer. The goal of a relaxer is to soften or reduce the natural curl pattern. It is a permanent solution. If manageability without permanent commitment is what you seek, then consider one of the keratin treatments available, which can help condition and restore your hair and can last from one to three months.
