Hi Secretkarma! Yeah you're right. It's a very dense forest of 3b/3c w/some 3a
Thanks for letting me know about your friend. It's comforting to hear it wasn't just me failed by relaxers (though I wish none of us went through it). Wish I had unbreakable protein bonds LOL … I see what you're getting at but sadly, I accidentally chemically straightened my hair recently by using a box hair dye that contained too much developer. It was straightened in places and damaged. Not a cute look at all. Had to baby my hair, grow some of it out and switch over to Henna for color.
Lashon, more good info – thanks
Looks like these relaxers have failed quite a few of us.
Question: When you did your WNGs after having a relaxer, was your hair a lot less curly, or do you think there was very little difference in your curl pattern from before vs. after your relaxer? (Mine was only changed from about a 3b/c to a strong 2c/3a … and that's after relaxing and then

Thanks for more confirmation that relaxers were and still are BS. I just remember being a kid and staring longingly at all those boxed relaxers at the grocery, of women w/straight STRAIGHT hair and thinking I could just slap some of that magic poison, oops I meant lotion, on my head, rinse it out and every strand on my skull would be forever flattened and silky with the sun rising before me amen. Guess not
