My hair is curly at the bottom, wavy in the middle and straight at the top. It drives me insane and the curls completely depend on the way I go to sleep. I hate straightening it so often and so I really want the relaxer treatment when I go off to college. My dad says no but I think that's just because he doesn't know what it is. So what are some pros and cons so that I can talk to him more about it?

It's not too bad actually.
Pros: easier to manage, no need to straighten all the time, no heat damage, less tangling, hair growth more noticeable, more styling options
Cons: dryness, split ends more noticeable, have to cut hair if you want curly hair again.
But if you know how to take care of your hair, it's a good option. As long as you deep condition often, and rinse the relaxer out completely after applying, your hair will be fine. And you can donate hair, but virgin hair is preferred and has higher value.1
