Default Does relaxers change the natural type of your hair?

I heard that your natural texture will never be the same; true or false?

Yes that is true it will permanately relax the texture of your hair, hence the term "relaxer".

Relaxers tend to change the texture of your hair, so if you had thick hair before and you relaxed your hair for a long period of time, when you grow it back it will probably be thinner.

hi. if you mean, the new growth, it will come in as your natural texture and curl,but if you mean the older hair that was relaxed, it will never be the same. mine has some slight curl if i put lots of stuff on it and "make" it curl, but even that is a mess.
im patiently waiting for my "real" hair. i can see why people give up and re-relax, because this is torture. sam

I miss my natural hair; but I don't feel like going through the pressing and washing and blowdrying and hurting lol. Then I REALLY don't want to cut my hair, it took me soooo long to get it back to ALMOST the length it used to be =[
4b hair can be so unpleasant =[ i think ill just shave it off

The only thing that might be an issue is this "scab hair" phenomenon. I don't even know that it's true, but after a little while, your hair should be in its original, natural state--that is, once you get rid of all of your relaxed ends. It's some genetics thing that would have to be present in order for the structure of your hair to change and your texture completely. Don't worry about it.

When you relax your hair, you relax the hair that is presently on your head. So new growth will not be relaxed and will be your natural hair texture. There always is a possibility that you do not have 4b hair (which i think is beautiful by the way) . You don't have to cut it if you don't want to. Nor do you have to press your new growth( which i probably wouldn't do because of fear of heat damage and harming the new growth). You can always do transitioning styles that blend the two textures without direct heat like :flexirods, curl formers, or rollersets i you prefer the straight look.
Best of luck and wishes.

It changed my hair texture, my hair type. My hair was not only way shorter but also thinner and I just got a completely different curl pattern after.
