Oh dear, don't get a relaxer. Those are just terrible for hair, soo many women have complained about their hair thinning and falling out after a relaxer, the chemicals used in those are really harsh on hair. If products don't work for you then consider a keratin treatment? It has much less chemicals and it smoothes out hair really nicely. If your hair is thick then it gives the best results. My sister got one called Cocoa Keratin hair smoothing treatment and we applied it at home (it's a kit). That was like 4 months ago and her hair is still looking good. Keratin is way better than a relaxer, think it over before you buy anything!
