    Default TEXTURIZER IN 4C HAIR didnít keep the curls?

    I applied a Texturizer with lye to my 4C hair, it turned to (Jheri curl) like curls while the Texturizer was in there. I was extremely satisfied with the results so I rinsed it out. Even when I applied the shampoo it was still very loose curls. HOWEVER, once I used the conditioner NEARLY all of the results(curls) went away. My 4c hair definitely has reduced shrinkage since, but not the results I expected or EVEN SAW in my Hair. What did I do wrong? Is there any way I can keep the loose curls I had? -My hair is 7inches -I am a male. -it was my first time doing it. Responses appreciated!

    Hello @4cHairMale

    Welcome to First thing, is a texturizer is a relaxer. Lye or no lye, it is the same thing. Companies have been calling chemical relaxers texturizers for years now, but it is still a chemical relaxer. It looks like you may have overprocessed your hair straight. Unfortunately there is no way to reverse this process because the way chemical relaxers work is to permanently break the bonds in your hair that make your hair curl and coil.

    The good news is that hair grows back.

    The lye is not the truth. Our people are conditioned t believe that tight kinks are not good and loose curls are the truth. I challenge you to just take the natural road and embrace your 4C hair.
    The lye is not the truth.
