PostSubject: Hair Texturizing: How to Do It   Thu Oct 09, 2008 5:13 pm

Many African American women struggle with styling their tight curls, but aren`t ready for a straightening process to get rid of them completely. Fortunately, there is now a happy medium that will not get rid of the curl completely, but will make it softer and easier to style for greater versatility. That solution is hair texturizing, which is a chemical processing that will relax your curls and make them easier to manage, but will not eliminate them entirely. Many African American women have opted for this route, because it is less damaging to the hair and leaves them with loose, pretty curls that can be quite flattering.

Before Texturizing

If you are considering a texturizing treatment for your hair, it is important to note that although this treatment does not stay on your hair as long as relaxers, it is still a chemical treatment that can damage your hair. Do not texturize hair that is already over processed, since this can cause further damage. If you choose to have this treatment done in a salon (which is always a good choice for the first texturizing treatment), make sure that your stylist understands that you want texturizing and not relaxing. Let her know that you are looking for looser, softer curls and not bone straight hair. Make sure that the salon that you visit is experienced in this type of chemical treatment before booking your appointment.

Benefits of Texturizing

There are many good reasons to consider a texturizing treatment. First, texturizing results in looser curls that are much easier to manage. It will also allow you more versatility in styling, since the hair will be easier to work with. The result of texturizing done properly should mean less frizz and shrinkage to the hair. You can also keep frizzies at bay by avoiding combing the hair once styling is complete. You can keep the curls you love, but allow more flexibility in your style and a softer look.

Caring for Texturized Hair

Like any chemical treatment, there are some steps that you should take in hair care after your texturizing treatment is complete. First, it is important to use hair care products that are designed for chemically treated hair, since these formulas will help to put moisture back into the hair and avoid damage. To add definition to your curls without washing, simply apply a bit of water to them in the morning. Moisturizing styling products are another good way to keep curls soft and manageable. After shampooing, use a leave in conditioner before combing out wet curls. Then put the comb away and complete your styling with your fingers for fewer frizzes.

For a softer look that won`t get rid of your natural curls completely, a texturizing treatment may be the perfect solution. Talk to your stylist today to find out if hair texturizing is the right choice for you.
