    After checking it out on a few more sites (still haven't found a complete ingredients list), I would say perm. Found one site that said low ammonia and low thio. Sounds like a curly perm to me.

    An acid wave is a curly perm. Definitely NOT a DT.

    Thanks ladies, it would have been a very sad day had I tried this out as a DT!

    Millie, while I was in Walgreens today, I saw this and thought of you.

    I wasn't making fun. Sorry that it came across that way. I thought of you because when I read the ingredients and read what it does, this seemed to be more of what you were after.

    oh sorry, my bad :P

    Isn't that also a perm of some sort? I thought the abba pure was a DT, I was just searching for a new DT and since Abba pure products are so great thought since there is no other DT visible maybe this was it, but alas no.

    I'm not sure if that's some sort of perm or not. Most perms are made with sodium hydroxide or some other type of alkaline. This is acetic acid which is the same acid that is in vinegar, lemons, etc. I need to do a bit more research to know for sure if its a some type of perm.

    In the meantime, maybe somebody who knows more about this product than me could help you out. I'm a chemist in real life but cosmetics isn't my background so folks who aren't chemist may actually be able to help better on a lot of these products.

    It's more of a softener, not a perm, and can be used every day. (They want you to believe it's a natural relaxer, but it won't straighten your hair.) I have a friend who uses it every couple of weeks and I thought about trying it, but the stink... Oof. As of right now, it's a pass for me but I might suck it up and try it one day.
