I've been natural two previous times and texturized both times. The problems I had with texturizing was finding hair dressers who embrace the idea. The majority just automaticaly want to take your hair straight even when you tell them you know what is best for your hair. Both times I found hair dressers that really understood but.... with the first I moved back home to my little hometown and with the second I actually lost track of her (would call and she stopped returning calls). And therein lies the problem. You move on explain everything to the next person and it's like it goes in one ear and out the other.

Anyway, I don't think it makes you a traitor. Folks have to do what is right for them.
