Making the Switch
I was natural for 2 years and 10 months before I decided to relax again in April 2008. My relaxer of choice...Elasta Qp Mild lye. It underprocessed me, but for awhile it seemed to be fine and I just dealt with it. Twelve weeks later I did a retouch. It was okay for about 2.5-3 weeks and now my hair looks like it's never seen a relaxer, so.....I'm going to try ORS Olive Oil Professional Normal lye relaxer (I also will do a corrective). I've heard some pretty good things about this relaxer (plus I've been relaxing my best friend's hair with the no-lye version and it's doing really well). I'm due for a touchup this weekend (12 weeks post) and can't wait to see the results. Hopefully it will straighten rather than texlax.
