What is a relaxer? Is it safe to use on my 3a-b hair?

I have this Latino friend with type 4 hair and I told her that I wanted to experiment with a relaxer and she nearly burst saying that it might kill my curls or dry my hair. is it safe to use on my 3a hair?

A relaxer is a harsh chemical ment for straightening curly hair, it is very damaging over time it will leave your hair thin and brittle, I do not recommend relaxing your hair no matter what your hair type is. Why do you wan't to use a relaxer?
