8 Tips To Ensure That You Get The Same Texlaxed Texture Every Time

Get the same texlaxed texture every time
Texlaxing is one of those newfangled words/techniques that came about as part of the healthy hair revolution a few years back and is both accepted and dismissed with haughty derision by stylists in equal measure.

If you didn't already know, texlaxing is simply texturizing your hair with a weak relaxer or adding oils, conditioner, protein or a combination of these to the relaxer in order to slow down and weaken it's effect on your hair.

In other words, it is deliberately under-processing your hair which leaves it with more texture, thickness and innate strength as compared to relaxed hair.

Back in the day we just called it under-processed hair which was a condition that was feared and considered a failed relaxer. It's odd how quickly things change and now texlaxing is seen as one of the best ways to continue enjoying relaxed hair without the negative results of bone straight processing.

Short of going natural, texlaxing for many of us may be the first step to real length retention.

Hi ALMA,
I HAVE A DRY CURLY PERM. I HAD THE WAVE BY DESIGN, BUT THE SHEDDING AND BREAKAGE WAS HORRIBLE, SO MY HAIR DRESSER GAVE ME A LEISURE CURL, WHICH IS MUCH BETTER. LESS SHEDDING AND BREAKAGE, BUT I HAVE DECIDED THAT I NO LONGER WANT TO CONTINUE GETTING THE DRY CURL. I WANT TO TRANSITION TO TEXLAXING MY HAIR. I KNOW I CANT USE A REGULAR LYE OR NO LYE RELAXER. I KNOW I HAVE TO STAY WITH A THIO BASED HAIR CHEMICAL. SO, MY QUESTION IS DO I CONTINUE TO USE THE LEISURE CURL CREAM REARANGER (STEP 1) MIXED WITH A PROTEIN CONDITIONER TO TEXLAX OR SHOULD I USE SOMETHING ELSE?
I GET TOUCH UPS EVERY 4 MONTHS AND I AM ONLY ONE MONTH POST AS OF NOW. I WAS THINKING OF WAITING 6 MONTHS BEFORE STARTING TO TEXLAX. MY HAIR IS VERY POROUS AND BREAKS DOWN EASILY AND A THINNER TEXTURE. I WAS NATURAL FOR 3 YEARS BEFORE I GOT THE CURL, SO I DO KNOW MY HAIR, I JUST NEED SOME GUIDANCE ON A THIO BASED PRODUCT TO USE FOR TEXLAXING WITH A THIO BASED CHEMICAL.
ANY GUIDANCE YOU CAN GIVE WOULD TRULY BE APPRECIATED.
KITTEN…
