Relaxers are so harsh. I've gone back and forth between relaxed and natural since I was 12. Right now, I am considering a BKT. They are temporary, and they claim to strength your hair (the opposite of what a relaxer does).
@avayoung Yeah, they are really harsh! The Brazilian Keratin Treatment sounds like it can be a great alternative. It seems to be a happy medium between relaxers and being natural! Let me know how it turns out if you decide to try it!!
