If you want the best texturizer due to thinning. I would suggest that you go to a salon to get the texturizer put in. Don't be afraid! Texturizers at the salons are less harsh than the ones sold a local beauty supply store or Target, or Wal-mart. I purchased a texturizer from Wal-mart just to soften my edges in the front and it dried my hair out. If you go to Regis at the Mall it will cost a fortune, but if you go to a privately own salon, it shouldn't cost that much. Good luck.
