Default From 3a/3b to 1, is this possible?

Hi everyone,

I'm a 3a/3b (3b at the root, then 3a for the rest of the curl) with shoulder length colored hair. My hair is very soft and thick (and prone to frizz) I did the Brazilian Keratin a few years ago and it didn't make my hair straighter permanently (like I thought it would) it just minimized the curl for about 2 weeks, then it went back to curls and frizz

I'd love to cut my hair in a short bob and do an Olivia Munn type look, if I relax it will it be completely straight? Is it possible to go from a 3 to a 1? What is the best relaxer out there? I don't want to do a relaxer and then have to blow dry or use a flat iron in order to get it straight, I just want to wash, let it dry and go.

Thank you so much any feedback is appreciated!

Ok I've had relaxers before, made my hair barely wavy not straight, but my hair is curlier than yours. It literally took me minutes to straighten.

I'd consult with a stylist you trust, they'll give you the run down on it. I wouldn't do from a box the first time. Touch ups maybe, not the first go.
