The Phyto (Index 2) gives me a lot of swing and body and shine!
It's also all about technique, as my stylist didn't know that I had stretched for 7 months and was afraid to overprocess the first application in 7/08, so I had a lot of mixed textures!
This go-around, he smoothed it down really good and my hair is really straight.
In comparison to the other relaxers I've tried, this is the best by far because it works really well with the other natural products I use (95% cone-free) like Aveda.
No dryness or stiff hair or thinned-out strands. Great styling memory, too. I can work out, swim and my hair looks like a fresh relaxer!
