How are you all doing? Kinks and all? Last week we started to talk about texlaxing and what you needed to know, today we would look at the pros and the cons
- Best of both worlds: When they say eating your cake and still having it? Well, this is one example. You have the best of both worlds, the texture, the strength that comes with natural hair and the ease that comes with having your relaxed hair.
- Different styling options and techniques: You have more flexible styling options and easier techniques to get it done.
- Uneven Textures: As much as you have the best of both worlds, you have to deal with the fact that you have 2 different textures and that can be abit too much when it comes to managing the 2 textures.
- Extra attention to Hair care: You might think that you have gotten away with being able to manage your hair better but with the introduction of the relaxer on your hair and also managing two textures, you would have to take extra care of your hair. There is no running away from this one is there?
- Thinner ends: You might have thinner ends. This will depend on how the relaxer is applied and it's advisable to avoid your ends in order not to weaken it in any way. You don't necessarily have to deal with this con if you are extra careful from the point of application.
- Prone to shedding: Your hair might be prone to shedding. This will also depend on the texture of your natural hair and the health of your hair before you texlax.
It is important that you do your research will and put into consideration the health of your hair before you texlax. This is just to help you make an informed decision if you do decide to go through with it.
