How can I permanently straighten my hair from being 3A/2C curly to 2B wavy? I used Phytorelaxer at home, but I didn't leave it on long enough. I want to go to a salon and get it done, but I'm afraid they will completely straighten my hair or fry it. Does anyone know of a salon in northern New Jersey that is good with relaxers?
My hair is currently like this texture but curlier (it's really thick and uneven-slightly wavy in some spots and 3A curly in others)

And I want it like this:

Any help/suggestions? Thanks in advance
