Phytospecific relaxer index 1 worked pretty well. I finally decided to texlax after 3 years natural with 4C hair.
#1 My hair did not melt off.
I went to a professional and long time family friend with over 30+ yrs hair exp. She was very open minded to my needs of the texlax and I explained how I wanted no combs, and to wash out early. My hair was a stretched Afro when I arrived. I washed, protein treatment and conditioned my hair about 4-5 days prior.
I kept putting oil and moisture it to create that "barrier" to prevent over processing. She used a base and wide tooth comb to detangle. My hair is pretty thick and barely shoulder length. It took about 5 min for application, and she smoothed it out with her hands for about 10 min...total time 15 MIN and It DOES smell like relaxer, and it DID itch! The milky reconstructor did NOT add any moisture, and the neutralizer was enough to wash out the relaxer. Im glad I took along my deep conditioner and added extra oil to it to use for the deep treatment & sit under the dryer for 30 min.
She roller set my hair and used a smaller comb to help straighten the ends for the rollers, I asked her to see how much hair was coming off in the comb and she showed me and was surprise how little it was...it was definitely breakage in the comb but it appeared to be way less than when I use a wide tooth comb in my natural state. She trimmed my ends as well. They were a little brittle but I think thats my issue . So when i got home I added some moisture and coconut oil and added it to my hair with a little extra for my ends and pinned curled them up for the night, only took 30 min which is a heck a lot better than the 60min i was spending just to detangle.
I am overall happy with the results however I wish the $60 came with some oil, moisturizer, and conditioner like some of the $5 brands. My stylist also said she has never heard or used this brand but would recommend it because of the results, and how my virgin hair "took" to it very fast and without even using a comb, my hair still had texture and body. Her only issue was the wording of the bottles, they use "fancy" words that even some stylist might be say "what?! is that" for example the Activator is called Indexer....the Balm is the base...the Milky stuff I still dont know what it was suppose to do...
I Hope this detailed review helps people thinking about trying Phytospecific relaxer index 1.
