Has anyone here tried Phytorelaxer? If so, what is your review of it?

    I have used Phytorelaxer. It works good.

    I just used it this past Sunday. BIG MISTAKE. I did not go over the specified time limit, I did a strand test, the result, burned (literally fried) ends. It also burned my scalp and broke off hair in the front. I've been panicking ever since Sunday to try and reverse the damage of breakage (I really don't want to cut the four inches it burned on the ends).

    Worse of all, my texture was fine before I had the crazy idea to give this "natural" relaxer a try.

    So unfortunately my advice is, have a pro do it if you must. Better yet, stay away from chemicals. :/

    I love Phytorelaxer. I will never use any other type of relaxer. I was an Affirm user and other similar relaxers. I did not believe in NO Lye relaxers, as they leave a film on the hair which makes the hair dry and brittle. This is not true with Phyto.

    I have over 6" of phytorelaxed hair on my head. The hair has a lot of body. My new hair stylist called it healthy hair. She was impressed. I switched to her salon, as they offer the phytorelaxer.

    I currently use level 1. It has never burned my hair or scalp. I find it to be a very nice relaxer. Of course, I've always taken it to a professional for application.

    I did whind up doing the phytorelaxer myself at home a few weeks ago and I just love the way my hair came out. Plus it didn't have that overwhelming chemical smell. I use II and my hair came out perfect with lots of body and soft shine. Next time I do my hair I may try I.

    Hey how dd it effect your hair? is your hair a looser curl or straight?

    Actually my hair seems more natural than straightened. I prefer it this way. It's still easy to straighten if I do a wash and set. Other than that I do CW and air dry so the natural looks helps. I don't know about others but my hair turned out underprocessed. I do like it better this way though.

    If I ever get a relaxer again, I'm going for this one. There are alot of reviews on longhaircareforum.com
    Currently kinky but relaxed with Phytospecific Index 1

    I say with any chemical treatment USE A PROFESSIONAL certified to do it. At least you have a better chance of it coming out right. You do no twant to get cheap on yourself when it comes to chemicals.

    Is your hair worth it?

    hello, i am relatively new to this site (:
    i was wondering if this relaxer does a lot of damage if you get it professionally done? does it actually loosen the curl enough to not put any products in it?
    Also, (sorry a lot of questions) after a few months (or however long it stays in), does it grow back curly at root and make it look bad, or does the product wear off your whole head and the hair just goes back to normal? sorry if that was confusing :/

    I think it is no lye relaxer like Olive oil but an expensive one. It works well for afro textured hair but for caucausian hair it overprocesses. Here is a detailed
    Phytospecific relaxer review which states it contains guanidine carbonate which is a cheimcal used in no lye. So, the claim made by phytospecific that it is chemical free is misleading. But, it seems to work well for most people so I am planning to give it a try . Will post the results here.
