I’ve reviewed a number of articles on the issue and most indicate that while relaxers can permanently damage your scalp or follicles, they do not alter the curl patter of your hair as it grows. Now, this is not to say that other interventions cannot alter the texture of your hair.
Can your natural hair texture change after relaxer?
“The makeup for a texturizer is a relaxer,” says Foster, so it will change your hair’s natural texture. One more thing to keep in mind: Even though a relaxer will straighten your hair and a texturizer will loosen your curl pattern, both treatments are permanent.
Does your hair go back to normal after a relaxer?
Relaxers are permanent, so whatever parts of your hair that have been in contact with a relaxer will never grow back naturally. Therefore, at some point in time your hair must be cut off to above the demarcation line. If you’re not willing to go for the big chop, the next step is to do regular trims of your hair.
What does hair transitioning mean?
Put simply, natural hair transitioning is the process of a person with naturally curly hair moving away from straightening treatments and towards their natural curl pattern.
How long does it take for relaxed hair to transition to natural hair?
Whether you decide to do a big chop or gradually grow out a relaxer, it’s going to take at least three to four months to start to see real change. For some, it may be a full year before you’re completely chemical-free.
