I think texturizers are the devil if you have hair longer than 1 inch long on your head! Again, this is my personal experience. After a nicely put suggestion that I put up more pictures 🙂 here’s one 🙂 In the picture below, you can see the difference in my hair with and w/o the chemicals. Keep in mind that the full length of my hair is the same in both of these pictures. The one one the right was take a few months ago & my hair is a bit longer–but with natural there is always shrinkage anyway.
To this day, I regret putting a texturizer in my hair. Yes, it “loosened the curl” but it also made my hair break more. I remember days in the bathroom combing my hair and hearing *snap crackle pop* and seeing my hair all over the floor! It’s a wonder that I even HAD hair left!
I got a texturizer after my former stylist recommended it to me. In the back of my mind I knew she was lazy & really the process was more to make her job easier smh. Long story short, when I finally decided to get rid of the texturizer (after about 3 or 4 months)– I went to a salon and told the man please just give me a nice cut, I’m growing my hair out & want to get rid of as much damage & hair as possible. So, he gave me this fabulous bob… I loved it! This is style is a definite option if I cut my hair (or buy a wig!).
The last thing that I just couldn’t stand about the texturizer was that God Awful burning feeling that is JUST like a PERM! While my edges are on fire, I’m thinking “Isn’t this why I stopped perming in the 1st place??” That is my rant on texturizers. Can’t stand ’em; won’t do ’em; don’t want ’em.
