You have straight hair with a teensy bit of wave to it, no, you should not use a relaxer.

Trust us when we say don't use it please. I have really curly hair and at one point, I bought a relaxer from the store. I only left it on for 45 seconds, and my hair literally melted off. That would happen to your hair as well
My advice is, if you really want super straight hair, you could use a blow dryer and a comb/brush and blow it straight, when your hair is still damp after your shower. Since your hair is so short, it won't take long at all to do that.

This is your natural texture. Not accepting it and trying to change it could lead to much frustration and hair damage.

if you REALLY want to make it look straight as an arrow, you could try this: After your shower, blot it dry with a towel, and then get dressed and stuff. Then, grab a blow dryer, and a comb or brush, and brush it over and over, while pointing the blow dryer at your hair, pointing down. You also should try to use medium heat. With your hair, it will dry very fast ( probably 10 minutes ), and straight. You could also try to out a little bit of gel in it before you start blow drying. That is the only way, unfortunately, unless you want to use a flat iron, but with the length of your hair, it would be extremely hard, because you could easily burn your ears and scalp, and neck, and forehead! Lol. Not to mention FRY your hair. Just try the blow drying method. They are around $15 for a standard one just from the store. And good luck with whatever you try. I hope you just accept your hair, as is, because it looks nice. It looks calm, smooth, healthy, not frizzy, and it looks thick, too.

For the cost of the relaxer (which isn't going to give you the result you want) you can buy a blow dryer at your local cvs. You barely have a bend to your hair, it would be dry straight in 5 mins. Do like curlyannie said. You don't seem to be "getting it". With any relaxer or keratin, it looks nice the first time but you have to touch it up every 4-6 weeks to keep it straight, then your hair starts to become dry and brittle and will start breaking off eventually. These processes are for people with curly hair, and as you'll read in the transitioning section, most people regret doing it and are working hard to get their natural hair back (usually by growing it all the way out and cutting off the relaxed parts over the course of a couple years). You don't need any kind of chemical smoothing or straightening. A simply "blow-out" will do the trick. Check this dude out, he gets it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMFU795Hbgk
Cleaning it up? Do you mean styling? blow-out is a style, you can always use products. You can follow the curly-girl method (which is explained lots of places on this forum) which means you don't use anything that has sulfates or sillicones (most drug store products do) and you wash your hair with conditioner for the most part. This might make your specific hair type weighed down though. Honestly, just use a sulfate free shampoo, a good silicone free conditioner and find a gel thats not too sticky to help you achieve "hold" during your blowout. Thats all you need. Simples. When you don't have time to re-wash your hair but you need to re-style it or "clean it up" you can spray your hair down with a little water, apply a little more gel and then blow dry it again and you're out the door. However, do rock your waves sometimes if you're so inclined. This site is a celebration of all of us accepting ourselves and our natural texture no matter what it is. This site is full of women and men alike who had no idea how beautiful their own natural hair was before because society said straight hair is better, more professional, more "kempt" which is a load of utter BS. You can see on these forums so many people who used to relax their hair and when they grew out their natural hair, they were shocked by how beautiful it is! Many choose never to straighten again, or only a couple times a year. If you're constantly manipulating your hair, you're not allowing it to be all it can be.

Hi Peter, I wanted to welcome you to Naturallycurly. I looked at your picture and I think your slight wave is nice (it gives your hair interest) and you have a great smile. I would love to have your hair. I only know from my experience. I had my hair relaxed at a salon and it broke off at my part and that's bad but the worse part is waiting for that to grow out. I ended wearing a couple thin braids with some length kinda french braided in until it grew out. We are trying to give you a chance to think about what you would do if that happened to you.
Even the blowdryer could have bad consequences beyond your hair. I was addicted to blowdrying. But it was all encompassing. I worried when it rained or if I was going to someplace where it was humid or even crowds of people can generate humidity. It was all I thought about and could never enjoy myself fully.
I hope you will take a moment and think about what COULD happen if things went wrong because it could. I try to give myself two weeks because I commit to a major change like that. Sometimes the mood passes. I think you have been given a lot of great advice so far. If you decide to embrace what great texture you have this is a great place full of ideas and we can offer encouragement. Best of luck in whatever you decide.

Your hair is barely wavy. Most hairstylists would not relax your hair with any type of relaxer or texturizer because there isn't enough wave or curl to make chemicals necessary. I would stay away from any store bought relaxer, regardless of what hair type they're marketed to. Your best option is a blowdryer and a brush. It should take you 10 minutes at most. Buy a straightening serum and you should be good to go.

I was watching a concert on tv last night with a lot of current artist and most of the guys had hair like yours. You are in fashion right now.
