Jumping in late here, but I wanted to add to the "please don't relax your hair" party!
Your waves/curls are lovely.
If you are determined to relax, I'd suggest a keratin treatment instead.
But my REAL suggestion is to just flat iron - and do so less often. Maybe keep it to once or twice a week, at most?
It's your hair, so by all means do what you like. But I think your hair is lovely, and maybe you just need the right routine and products to keep the frizz at bay.
I think you'll find the less heat damage, the less trouble you'll have in humidity.
Just my 2 cents.
