Texturizers versus keratin treatments

I am posting my question here because I think it got buried in the other thread....

Just wondering why the women here who want to loosen their curl pattern don't opt for a traditional texturizer/relaxer over a keratin treatment since texturizers have been around for 50 years and used much more widely.

Is there a difference in the result?

    In my opinion they are the same. Both damaging and all.

    I disagree. The cystine based treatments are temporary and don't break the bonds in your hair like traditional sodium/calcium/lithium/ hydroxide relaxers.

    Keratin treatments can contain formeldahyde and product similar results as texturizers without nearly as much damage.
