In 2011, after being natural for two and a half years, I made the decision to texlax. At that time, I was at Armpit Length (APL) and I realized that I would not be able to reach my hair length goal while being natural. Texlaxing was the best option for me and my hair has thrived while being texlaxed. I’ve proved that you can grow healthy long hair while being chemically treated.
If you are wondering about what is texlaxing exactly, check out my What Is Texlaxing post. I not only share the definition, but I also share some tips and answers to my most frequently asked questions. That post has a video with great info and it’s the perfect starting point for texlaxing.
