I am not really familiar with texturizers or if they are different from relaxers. I was relaxed and the way I can tell the difference between my new growth and the relaxed ends is when my hair is wet. The relaxed ends remain straight while my new growth curls. Hopefully others who've had texturizers can give more advice if there is a difference between the two.

When your hair is wet, your new growth would be way more curly than your natural hair. (I noticed that with my bffs hair).
Also, if you know that your new growth is by 6 inches. Just measure 6 inches from your roots and then cut below that 6 inches.

Hope I could help.
Things I use: Olive Oil, Canola oil, rosemary oil, aloe vera gel, shea butter, mayonnaise, eggs, milk, bananas

Everything I use is 100% natural. I make most of them myself because then I'm sure what's in it and I'm sure nothing's added, it's pure, it's natural.

Things I avoid: Mineral oil (codename: Baby oil), heat (I'm a total, no hair driers, no straighteners, no curling irons, no flat irons, no hot combs...nada), sodium chloride

Growing plan: At least 6 inches longer in a year.
