Don’t get us wrong. Natural hair is awesome. But so is texturized hair! So you don’t want to have natural hair but you don’t want to take the plunge into straight relaxed hair. What do you do? You texturize your hair. Texturizing means using the TCB Naturals Relaxer (Regular or Super) to chemically relax your curls. Not straighten, but relax your curls. Welcome to the texturizer life. Stick around to get to know how you can texturize and re-texturize your hair.
Texturizing can be done 3 ways:
1. Having Relaxer on For Less Time.
The beauty with the TCB Naturals Relaxer is that it is light,easy and safe to use. Remember how former relaxers required you to be a chemist and mix things in a bowl? You won’t be doing that here. Section the hair into 4 sections and apply the relaxer according to the instructions on the box:
Step 1: Part the hair into 4 sections. Working on one section at a time, apply relaxer crème to hair (1.0 cm from the scalp), moving from the back of the head towards the forehead. Here’s the texturizing catch. Instead of the usual time that you leave the relaxer on, texturizing requires you to leave it on for between 5 to 10 minutes. When the relaxer application is complete, smoothen hair in the order of application until hair is texturized.
Step 2: Rinse thoroughly with warm water, until the hair is free of relaxer crème.
Step 3: Use Neutralizing Shampoo. Balancing hair pH is essential in the process. The TCB Naturals relaxers come with free Neutralising Shampoo to help you out with this. Repeat the shampooing process until the relaxer is completely washed off. Condition & style as desired.
2. Using Less Relaxer
This method involves using less relaxer than you usually would when relaxing hair. Section your hair into the usual 4 sections but apply less relaxer than required. Leaving you with loose curls, soft to the touch and easy to manage. This is what TCB Naturals Relaxer does for you!
3. Less Time and Less Relaxer
Texturizing can also be done by combining the dynamics of quantity and time. Apply less relaxer to your 4 sections then apply less TCB Naturals Relaxer, for 5 to 10 minutes. Your hair will be transformed from a tight curl pattern to a more loose curl pattern.
