My hair is very thick and I could only wear it out if it was braided. Otherwise it was tied back in a bun....every single day. I decided to get a texturizer professionally done. In my opinion that is really the best way to get it done. In order to best control the outcome and avoid over processing the stylist should separate your hair into 4-8 sections. Each section is texlaxed and completely washed before moving on to the next section. Most people have 2 or more textures and the stylist has to process each section based on the texture. That is what I had done and it was worth it!
