4a/b texlax support and advice

Like Tree3Likes

I usually visit this thread every 6 months or so just to see what's going on in here. I'm glad that people are still posting. I'm still texlaxing evey few months. When my hair gets really tangled and hard to manage, I know it's time for a touch up. Here are a few pics from the past year. Love you ladies!!!

Sorry I have been MIA. I transitioned or rather I became pregnant and decided to chop and avoid chemicals. But after over a year I am back and don't know why I left. I guess I had to prove it to myself all over again just to be sure. I swear there is another hair type, I call it the dreadlock hair. Give me just a little water or sweat and my hair starts to crawl and knot. The only system I have ever seen to address this problem is Crown and Glory technique. I am starting to find some naturals who have to heat straight or keep their hair stretched out all the time or else it tangles. Love not having to deal with that.

Detangler- Aussie moist, Dove

KCCC KT on certain days
Oil- Coconut, jojoba,
Goal: Peace, healthy hair and to not spend alot of time and money on my hair.
I have 3c hair and thinking about texlaxing to get to 3b. I went to Christo salon in NYC, they call it a "softener" but i think it's a mild relaxer.
Questions.
1- will doing a texlaxing type of treatment damage hair?
2- will I need to do this ongoing? They told me it keeps the same curl pattern, just loosens it
The pieces in front/sides were cut too short and I can't deal with the poofiness.
Any info is greatly appreciated!!
Thanks for the compliment on the color. It's my natural color. In spring and summer it lightens if I get a lot of sun. In the past I hated it because it was never a single color. All of the times I've dyed it, it looks good for about a week, then my hair becomes extremely dry and breaks off, so no more dye for me. I did henna for about a year, and I missed my natural color. When I was letting it grow out my friends were laughing saying it looked like someone poured sand on my scalp. I rode it out until my natural color came back, so I've learned my lesson about dyes.
