Black women which is the lesser of two evils: keratin treatment or relaxer?

Question by gurlycirl: Black women which is the lesser of two evils: keratin treatment or relaxer?
Right now I’m rocking individual braids and cornrows (natural hair) but I’d like to change it up and wear my hair down. Problem is I also work out so it’s no point in flat ironing or curling it, it just sweats out.
I figure both have harsh chemicals that aren’t the best things to be exposed to (keratin has formaldehyde and relaxers have lye), but I NEED a solution to just loosen my curls. I’m not looking to go bone straight, but something to make my natural 4b go to type 3ish hair. I actually want to wear my hair down in the loose curls on a daily basis, and maybe every once in while straighten it.

my hair is more like hers
