Will this product damage hair that has already been relaxed once with another chemical (thio)?
I recently (about 3 months ago) had my hair relaxed at a salon. The active ingredient in the relaxer was thio. At a minimum, I would like to relax the regrowth myself, and also possibly apply the relaxer to the rest of my hair to get it a bit straighter. (The salon product left it more curly that I would like.) I have extremely curly/kinky/frizzy hair that is also very fine and delicate.

If you use this or ANY straightener over a thio-based product, it's like using NAIR on your hair. I used this product last year after I thought all my bio-ionic straightened hair had grown out (chin-length, one year later). The last inch of my hair started to literally dissolve, and I freaked out. I had to get that inch chopped off. However, the rest of my hair was great and I loved the results. I have really wavy, thick hair. Just BE CAREFUL!

I don't know but I would never mix a product. I would let the other one grow out first I would rather be safe than sorry :)
