Deciding what relaxer to use for telaxing is a tad overwhelming. If you are transitioning from relaxed to telaxed, I always recommend sticking with the relaxer you are currently using to relax your hair. However, if you are texlaxing for the first time or wanting to change products, I have my top three relaxers to use for texlaxing.
1. Mizani Butter Blends
I’ve used the Mizani Butter Blends and the Mizani Rhelaxer formulations for texlaxing since 2012, and out of all of the relaxers I’ve used, the Mizani brand is my absolute favorite. My results are always consistent and I don’t have calcium build-up that is associated with no-lye relaxers.
2. Soft & Beautiful Botanicals
If you have a sensitive scalp, I would recommend the Botanicals relaxer. I used this for years prior to going natural in 2009. I was never disappointed with the results and I didn’t experience any burning with this relaxer, even without adding oil. It is truly a great relaxer for those with a sensitive scalp.
3. Africa’s Best Kids Organics
If I ever switched from Mizani, I would go back to this brand. Kids Organics relaxer is perfect if you want to maintain curls but loosen them up some. When I used this relaxer, I was able to achieve fewer frizzes and a looser curl pattern. I would say, this is a great option if you are moving from natural to texlaxed and you are not sure how much texture or curl you would like to keep in your hair.
Each of these is a great relaxer to use for texlaxing, and each has its benefits based on your needs or desired look. Mizani is great overall but works the best for creating a wavy hair pattern. Whereas, the Botanicals brand relaxer is great for those with a sensitive scalp. Lastly, Kids Organics is a great choice if you want to maintain a curly pattern but you reduce the amount of frizz in your hair.
I hope you enjoyed my top three list of relaxers to use for texlaxing my hair. What relaxers do you have on your list?
