Long story made short:
I have 2c/3a hair, but wanted 2c waves.
My hairstylist used regular relaxer on my spirally curls & left for 5 minutes to loosen the curl.
(5 minutes=half of recommended time)
Now my hair is straight!!

I wish I didnt do it :cry:
What can I do?

    Sorry that happened. I had an instantly regretted relaxer done a couple of months back, so I feel your pain.

    I understand how you feel..This happened to me, I was like WHAT WAS I THINKING? But I am happy I did it because now I never have to wonder how it might look. I am glad to hear your curls are making an appearance again.

    esmeralda: Maybe you can try flat twist, twist outs or straw curls until you get your nappiness back. Are you willing to do a TWA? Your hair must be fine -- 5 minutes with a SUPER perm would not have straighten my napps out (LOL).

    Hi :D

    I am indian, so my hair isnt in the 4range...
    Think Salma Hayek texture with 2c/3a,thats me.

    5 minutes with a relaxer is enough to loosen the curlpattern on my hair, but I got my curls back!!
    A few days after relaxing it started curling again & I will never go near that stuff again!!
