Does relaxing hair cause it to lose it's texture?

All my life I have had my hair natural and I take real good care of it, but I think I reached a time in my life where I need a bit of a change and thought of relaxing my hair. I love my curls and it's 3b pattern but would relaxing cause my hair to lose it's texture?

yes it would. The chemicals in relaxers burn the protein bonds in the hair strands that allow curls to be stronger throughout especially at the bends of each curl. An option you may want to consider for your time of change could be a weave or a wig.
