I am surprised that I liked this and it worked! I am caucasian with dark blonde wavy frizzy past bra-strap-length hair. I'm forever frustrated by the frizz, as well as cowlicks along my hairline which look especially funny bc the hairline hairs have a short terminal length.

I was afraid to use this but read the directions and followed them carefully. Applying the goop was …

I love this relaxer! I have been getting my hair relaxed since I was a teenager and have had MANY bad experiences! Too many burns and hair breakage....this product has completely revitalized my hair. It looks healthier, feels softer, and most importantly doesn't come out as much- all the while doing the job of straightening out my crazy hair!

The salon where I go uses the product …

My hair has seen so many straighteners and relaxers it is crazy. I have tried the Keratin and Japanese straighteners. I love the Japanese, but my hair started to feel the damage and it got too expensive. This relaxer is great! I personally had my hair stylist do the process for me. It costs more, but it is worth it, believe me! As you're applying the first part of the product it hardens …Read more

Hi All, this is a warning about this product if you are unfamiliar with relaxers! I am a Euro-American (white, whatever) and I wanted to permanently straighten my hair. I followed the instructions exactly-- but I didn't use enough of the protective balm. As a consequence, I developed (overnight, not immediately) nickel to quarter sized lesions all along my hairline. A week has passed …Read more

My hair stylist talked me into trying the Phyto relaxer. She claimed that it was more "natural" and that it would make my hair healthier. Well, after a few months with Phyto, I switched stylists and switched back to Affirm. Phyto is not a regular relaxer. It made my hair wavy and not straight. After going to the gym, I felt like I had a mini Afro underneath my old relaxed hair. If you …Read more

This Relaxer is the TRUTH!!! I have used a few different kinds of pro relaxers as well as one other store bought... but I alwayz come back to this one (doue to the price tag, being cheap and curious lol) . Yeah the price tag is crazy $60.00 but it is worth every penny. Yeah there is two applications but the way it is packaged is less desirable. They should have two separate containers for each …Read more

I have been on this site for years and NEVER felt the need to review anything but I have to this time! I have struggled with lots of thin delicate very curly hair for years! Phyto 1 does exactly as promised...I was nervous at first as have never relaxed and couldn't see how my hair would not be damaged - but is wasn't. However I followed the instructions religiously and conditioned …Read more

This relaxer has given me my life back. Let me explain: over two years ago I stopped relaxing my hair because it had become damaged and thin. I was using a cheapie relaxer and not conditioning my hair enough. I decided to go natural and from Feb 2007 until yesterday afternoon, I nursed my hair back to better condition. But my natural hair was starting to be a hassle: blow drying and flat ironing …Read more

This is my Holy Grail relaxer. I've tried lye and no-lye and I will forever stick with Phyto. I used #2 for a few years, but just recently learned that #1 actually does much better in my hair. It's gentler and still gets my hair bone straight, and I have 4a/b hair. I will have to say I don't agree that it's like a texlaxer; I have a kinky (not curly) texture and I can get …Read more

I'm caucasian and bought phytospecific index 1 relaxer....

I left it in for OVER the max amount of time even after reading the instructions a few times.

NOTHING HAPPENED! It just made my hair smell bad. No relaxing took place, my hair is just as curly as it always was. I've even taken before and after pictures to prove this point, which I will be posting …
