Texturizer is a way to loosen curls to a certain extent without straightening them.

Unlike a relaxer, texturizers have a function that helps release the tight curls into waves and make it easier to comb your hair.

Our hair is made up of amino acids, which lend it its curliness. So when using a texturizer, the hydrogen bonds in the amino acid are broken down and result in looser curls.

In addition, you are advised not to overdo it but to do it at least two weeks before fixing and when you do.
