I have tried regular texurizers and relaxers and I hate how they make my hair look. Plus I don't like working under time constraints.
With this treatment or other treatments (cyestine) you can get temporary results that gradually wear off without breaking the bonds that strengthen the hair. Bascially, I do not want to worry about overlapping my hair and my scalp is very sensitive when it comes to lye or any variation of it. Overall, these treatments are better for the hair and scalp than lye.
