If I were to relax my hair, I would not do it bone straight so I guess it won't be so damaging. Also, I will only straighten my hair about 4 times a month. The rest of the time, I will wash it, put some products and let it air dry.

To me, that sounds less damaging than straightening my hair everyday. But maybe I am wrong. Please let me know what you think.

Again, thank you all for your responses. This site is awesome. So happy I found it!!!
