Default How do you relax your hair?

What is the point of relaxing your hair? Does it help straighten it?
3B - 3C curly hair (Corioliss Ceramic Straightener, Biosilk Silk Therapy Shine On, Dove Mousse for Body & Lift, John Frieda Frizz-Ease)

Bad products to use? Please inform me of what I should use! Thank you!

most people that relax their hair are only interested in wearing their hair straight (not their natural curls). that's what i did for 16 years, although the no-lye relaxers still didn't take all of the texture out of my hair. what i had was basically a texturizer, which is semi-relaxing the curl so it's not as tight. this enables you to wear a curly style, but also when you straighten your hair it tends to hold better (in my experience anyway) because of the chemical alteration to your hair strands.

hope that helps
