Hairstyling/Bad Texturizer


I have recently used a Just for Me hair softener in my natural hair to make my 4b/c curls manageable. I tested a strand of my hair and it came out perfect. I continued to do the rest of my hair and now half my hair is completely straight and the other half is curly. This is my first and last time trying one is there a way to fix that one half back to curly?

 Unfortunately, with sodium based relaxers (and texturizers), once the hair is straightened you cannot process it to restore curl. The chemical processes are not at all compatible and you would most likely experience severe breakage. Your only options would be to relax the remaining hair, unfortunately. And I would really suggest having it done professionally if possible.
Best of luck to you.
