    I think they're the same, just with fancy-schmancy wording
    in-betweeen to make people think they're not really using the same chemicals in nair on their hair.

    But, if you really want a better definition, you might try the straightening forum... I think some of them discuss chemical stylers over there...

    I agree that they are most likely the same products, i.e. relaxers. The names are not technical terms but marketing ploys.

    I have heard of a natural clay that temporarily loosens curls, but I am not sure if that is marketed as a "biosoftener". All the silkeners I have heard of, seem to be just regular relaxer mixed with some conditioner.

    Your best bet is to check the ingredients of these products. If you could post the lists on here, I'd be glad to help.
