Talking I'll never use another relaxer (PHYTO REVIEW)

Just call this STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND GET THIS NOW!!!! Part Deuce!!
Phyto Relaxer Index 1

OK here we go. So my hair hasn't been combed from root to tip in about 4 days (too much new growth). So I decided to skip the basing and go straight to the relaxer. I do manage to put some Protecto on the ends and about 4in up to protect that hair. So I section my hair into 4 and start to mix the solution. Yuck!! the smell is very chemically! I start getting nervous. At this moment I reconcile with myself that if all my hair hits the floor I'd be OK going natural and move forward

The application went fairly smoothly, but the crown area was a little challenging. I started in the back and completed those 2 section before moving on to the front. I was finished with the application @ 10 minutes and decided to start smoothing. At this point I can tell the hair was not relaxed yet. Normally as soon as the relaxer hits my head my hair starts breaking down. Not so with Phyto. Although I'm not a smoother (makes my hair too flat), I realized I was gonna have to do some smoothing to help the relaxer along (didn't want underprocessing). So I smooth each section with my fingers for about 1-2 min each. At this point I'm amazed that I don't feel the slightest of tingling @ all.

After smoothing I prepare to neutralize. By the time I'm doing this the relaxer has been on for 18 min. It took SEVERAL (6) washes to get the neutralizer to turn white. I used the ENTIRE bottle. I lost an awful lot of hair during the process. This was due to normal shedding and some tangling from being bent over in the sink. Next I put on the Phyto CO and let that sit for about 5 minutes. I followed that up with Elucence MB CO for another 3 min.

Upon emerging from the shower, I apply some Lacio Lacio and NTM serum and comb through. I was gonna do a rollerset but I was too anxious so I blowdried instead. My hair is looking and feeling magnificent. Please fast forward past my meltdown and skip straight to after the big trim.

I'm amazed @ my hair. It's amazingly soft and bouncing and behaving like nobody's business. My hair has NEVER behaved like this EVER. Even after going to salons. The Phyto seems to have done major conditioning on my hair hair strands. Although I only touched up the roots, the relaxer still touches the hair during rinsing. I absolutely LOVE the results. ALso I forgot to mention. My roots are not completely straight. But that's what I want. I still have some wave left in there and that's fine by me. I will never use another relaxer.

Kaddy & Monalisa thanks for being such bigtime Phyto Pushas And thanks to all the Phyto users who raved about this amazing relaxer. Without you all, non of this beautiful hair would be possible So when is my induction ceremony

PHYTO WORLD!!!!

I'm very glad you had a wonderful experience.......


OKAY OKAY OKAY OKAY!!!! Y'all are going to seriously break my husband, fo sho'!


I'm really intrigued by this relaxer! HOWEVER, I just can't get past the price$$$$!!!

Since it leaves this wave pattern then don't you start have curling issues sooner? How do you tell what's newgrowth?


Oh, boy, oh boy, oh boy......

ArmyQT used index 1, which probably acted more like a texturizer. So that is why she probably has the wave pattern that she does.

I really don't know what my hair type is, but if I had to classify, I'd say 3c/4a. I don't think I have any "B" parts in my hair. And my strands are very fine. If you want a looser curl pattern I would go with Index 1. If you're looking for more of a straight look, you may want to try index 2.

I've always wanted to retain a wave pattern to my hair but in the past I've always ended up with underprocessed hair when attempting this. Phyto gives me more than enough to apply (becuase it's so mild) and I didn't come out with underprocessed hair.

If you want straight hair Index 2 might be for you. I prefer to have a little wave left in the hair. There should be a distinct difference in the the newgrowth and the relaxed hair. I guess kinda the same way people with texturizers can tell. Gone and get the relaxer girl and quit playing

See, this is the sign of a good pusha. I can just sit back and let the other ladies push it for me.



Good job ArmyQT


I know some ladies are like this too



Don't think I didn't notice all the siggys and posts about going to the beloved PhytoRelaxer. A pusha keeps her eyes and ears open.

Is Phyto Lye or no lye? If it's no lye, can it be used over lye?

A PHYTORELAXER WORLD!!!!

LMBO! Co-signing with the PhytoPusha! Thanks for the shout out Movie Star! I knew u would love it. I did all my research on Phyto since the summer of 04, so I knew I was gonna do it...but after seeing Digital Rain's hair and da Pusha here...it just sealed the deal for me.

It is an amazing product, isn't it? It's pricey, yes. But I so think it's worth it. If one can invest in conditioners, poos and such, why not the best relaxer EV-A (yes, I said EV-A ).

I so want to do a corrective with it, but the Pusha and Sengs have advised against it . My hair was so underprocessed prior to the Phyto, I'm still thinking it won't hurt me (stubborn Aries) if I do *cough*. I want to look like Lil Hiawatha.
