I finally stepped in a Texas salon. I can say that I enjoyed my experience. I go a relaxer and a 3 to 4 inch trim. It was a bit different. I am using to getting my ends trimmed at the end of the process. She cut them in the beginning. I guess it worked out for the best. I have very happy with my results. She applied the relaxer very quickly. I was not sitting and waiting for a long period of time. She allowed my conditioner to sit in for about ten minutes and it left my hair feeling soooooo soft. I loved it. I wish I knew what she used. My hair did not feel stripped in any way. I am trying to get used to my new lengths, but its nicer, healthier, and manageable.
To top it off I only paid $80 compared to what everyone else wanted to charge me. $100+. No thank you.
