Aha!

That must be why 95% of the advice I see for curly/wavy hair doesn't work for me, and why it's endlessly frustrating for me to deal with my hair. I have super-coarse hair that is also thick and...

I mostly wear my hair up for work. It's tidy and it means I never have to think about it.

From what I understand...

Texturizing means a relaxer left on for a much shorter time than indicated for straightening, correct?
