Question If you are looking to stretch your relaxers can you use a texturizer as a substitute or is that just a bad idea that could cause more damage to my hair?

A Texturizer last longer than a perm will! A Texturizer lasts for 12 months before you need to get a touch up! A regular perm is a no-lye, a texturizer is a lye. I use Soft and Beautiful's texturizer and I'm in need for a touch up it's been 1yr and 3months since I last used one! Hope this helps you!

But could I then go back to a relaxer anytime I wanted or would I be stuck using a texturizer? And will a texturizer work on relaxed hair?

If you wanted to go back to a relaxer at anytime after the texturizer you can! My niece had one after her hair grew to the middle of her back, So yes you can go back to a perm anytime you like

No. A texturizer can e just as damaging as a relaxer. Just like the kiddie relaxer...every body thinks the kiddie relaxer is a safe bet....anyway if not careful, yo can actually straighten the hair with a texturizer if not applied or done properly. YIKES!

A texturizer and a relaxer have the same chemicals. There are so many people who think that kiddie relaxers and texturizers are safer than lye, and no-lye relaxers and they are NOT. Texturizers do the same thing as relaxers - break the hair bonds to restructure it.

If you leave a relaxer in your hair for less than the required amount of time for your hair type, it IS "texturized". My husband used to do it all the time and people didn't even know that he had relaxer in his hair. They swore is was "natural waves!" LOL

But this is the reason you can switch from relaxer to texturizer and vice versa. But I wouldn't recommend switching on a consistent basis like this because it can cause lots of hair breakage. But they both do still basically does the same thing: loosen the natural curl pattern.
