Subject: African American Thermal Reconditioning (Denise and any one else who can help)
Date: April 4, 2010 at 11:49 pm PST

From the few examples on AA hair that I've seen, thermal reconditioning seems like something I would want to do with my hair. A few years ago I decided to cut off all of my no-lye relaxed hair and go natural (chemical free). I soon realized that I would rather have straight hair than a kinky curly bush. Wearing my natural hair straight is just not feasible in humid Alabama weather. On top of that I was constantly dealing with single strand knots which made my ends look bad and a bit of heat damage.

From there I got my hair professionally relaxed and didn't like it. So i cut off all of my hair again in an attempt to have damage free pretty hair. Soon afterwards I decided to try using a BKT. It made my curls much looser and I could straighten my hair to look like silk. The only issue with the BKT is that the super silky look only last about 3 weeks and then after 2 months any remenant of the treatment seemed to have vanished.

I couldn't afford to travl great distances and pay so much money for something that would only last 2 months. So I decided to relax my hair again. This time I used sodium hydroxide. It left my hair with more shine and softness than the no lye, but nowhere near as smooth and silky as the BKT. For some reason typically on African American hair traditional relaxers seem to give the hair a micro ripple/crinkled/crimpped look and feel.The hair does not feel as smooth as freshly straightened natural hair. Recently I got a BKT put on the relaxed hair and it is still not the same as on my natural hair.

Im hoping that a TR will give me very smooth straight hair. I am aware that I'll have to grow my hair out in order to get this done .So I need to know if this is worth the commitment. If so, I'll be administering bkts on myself until I have enough length to get a TR. Also, do you know of any salon in Alabama or near that have experience with doing TRs on African American hair? Sometimes I feel tempted to purchase product so that I could just do it on myself once I get my hair long enough.

Also, while I wait and grow out my hair what product should use to help combat my new growth besides BKTs. I've been looking at the Nigelle er products and the crede products. From there descriptions and reviews crede products seem like something that I need in my life especially the AT shampoo. the only thing is that I'd hate to invest in a product that is discontinued. Are the nigelle er products coparable to the crede products like the er,sr and pliant fr treatments or ft,at, and pliant pa shampoos? Are there any other products that I could use to help smooth new growth?
