Relaxers for Afro Hair

I have very coarse, curly hair, which is pretty much afro. I understand that relaxers are the ticket if I want to get it under control… which one should I use?

Relaxers are the best way of manageing afro hair. They work by softening the hair to a point where it can be restructured into a straighter style. A Relaxer is a very diluted version of a depilatory - yes hair remover, so have it done professionally. If not you could have a disaster on your hands.
