@wavie: phew, i'm glad you figured out what was wrong! I definitely had to take the gloves off to see how much I as putting on my hair, so that's what I would suggest next time. It doesn't burn/sting/anything negative to your hands, & I washed it off before applying to every section anyway. It gave me a MUCH better idea of how much I was applying.
--

I actually just washed mine out tonight & I like the results, but they aren't a miracle, sadly :\ My hair is still a bit frizzy, or well poofy I guess would be the better word for it. the strands themselves are all very sleek, actually, but my overall hair is still...well, had volume, I guess. Not the nice volume, but it's hard to explain. When my hair dries normally it dries rather full, frizzy almost, & when I flat iron all of that 'poof' goes down & my hair is very sleek. I guess that's the best way I can describe it. the strands are only shoulder length so maybe that's why they tend to get fluffy, because there's no weight pulling it down. Regardless, the treatment did smooth it down a lot, even if I still have the fluff & will need to flat iron to get them to be sleeker.

I may do the treatment again over the next weekend, since they said it would be fine to do again, because the ingredients are supposed to aid the hair. Also, for blondes, mine turned a bit more yellow than the regular ash color when i applied it to the areas that are blonde, not too brassy, but when I washed today the blonde was back to normal. So, I guess because I applied less to that area it didn't affect it entirely. But thank goodness, because I didn't want to have to tone it haha.
Hi guys,

I applied it yesterday and woke up this morning. The results are pretty decent. It sill a little poof at the roots of my hair. I have 4a transitioning from a relaxer hair. Prob. 3 inches of new growth. I am trying to hold out from washing it. the smell is lingering. It was awful at first but now the sweet smell is sickening. yuck. So I'm getting anxious to wash it. I did get a mild headache from the fumes. My bathroom has no windows. I put my air purifier in and opened the door. Oh well... lol. I also need to eat something so it could just be that. Anyway, I an happy with the result I woke up this am tho and it's poof in one spot in the front I think im going to put some more on in that spot and flat iron again and see if it goes away. Maybe I didn't put enough on. I'm wondering if i put enough on that if I wash it this result will come back. Right now I'm doubtful. My hair was drinking the stuff tho I used 3/4 of a bottle! my hair is an inch below my shoulders. Ok i'm going to go see if i can fix the poof! lol
I am three weeks (and three shampoos and three co-washes) into this treatment and I am crazy about it. I can tell it's wearing off so I just bought some more and plan to do this regularly every 30 days, that's how much I love it!! Most "miracle products" have done NOTHING for me and my impossible hair so I went into it with zero expectations...fully expecting the same dismal results.

Since I had no hopes it would work I didn't bother taking before and after pictures, but I will the next time I use it (in a few days) so you can see the results, which for me were really dramatic.

For reference: my hair is wavy, thick, below shoulder length and extremely coarse, rough, dry, and frizzy. (One package was more than enough btw.) I used the 30-day treatment, and the matching the shampoo and conditioner. I did not buy the matching serum because it's the same as the silicone serums I already use, or the flat-iron spray because it contains SD alcohol.

As to its claims: It did not remove "95 percent of my curl," more like 60 or 70 percent but that's fine with me. It DID remove "95 percent of frizz" -- YEP, absolutely. Frizz and coarseness are my biggest hair problems, and this fixed them both. Left my hair incredibly smooth, soft, and absolutely frizz-free. As in ZERO FRIZZ. As it NORMAL HAIR...finally!!

Major pluses: Hairstyling takes minutes, and my hair looks good for days. No more worries about waking up looking like a Brillo pad, no worries about the weather, no struggling with methods or routines or styling tricks. It looks good whether I air-dry or blow-dry.

I finally know what it's like to have "normal hair" that I can fix and forget with NO styling products -- I threw most of mine out in fact-- all I use is the silicone serum that I always used anyway, but no gels or mousses or hairsprays -- they are not needed!!

Also, unlike a relaxer or straightener, there is no damage -- in fact my hair looks and feels healthier than it has in years.

Some caveats/things to keep in mind:

1. The process of applying is not difficult, but it takes a long time (about 3 or 4 hours) and your hair will be subjected to lots of heat. Also, the waiting-out period before you can wash the treatment out is a drag. Your hair will be straight but it will look dull and "coated" and will have a weird waxy feel.

2. The waxy feel will stay in your hair throughout the time the treatment stays in and you will especially feel it when you shampoo. Your hair won't have that "bouncy clean" feeling you normally get after shampooing and will feel weird when it's wet, so be ready for this...Once it dries, however, it will look BYOOTIFULL: bouncy, smooth, and shiny.

3. I don't like non-sulfate shampoos and conditioners as they tend to leave my hair feeling rough and dry, but the Organix products are better than others I've tried and they smell wonderful!! I did supplement the conditioner with some of my favorites, though, as the Organix alone was not moisturizing enough for my dry tresses.

4. Some users have complained about the smell that the treatment has during the two-day waiting period but it didn't bother me. Sort of "cooked oatmeal" smell but not horrible.

5. Yes, it lightens hair color. This didn't bother me as my haircolor was getting too dark anyway and it kind of gave me really cool highlights...but you should definitely color before you do this because coloring also seems to slightly reverse the treatment's effects -- I definitely noticed a difference after touching up my color three weeks in -- but I cant' go 30 days without coloring -- if you can you should not have this problem.

All in all, I give this product an A and fully intend to use it again! And again! Hope I haven't put anyone to sleep with this long review but wanted to give y'all the full scoopage...Try it, I think you will like it!

Modified CG. You'll pry my 'cones from my cold dead fingers! Mixed waves, coarse, below shoulder length, dark brown. I hate my hair but I'm trying to learn to accept it.

Gels: LA Looks Wet Look Styling Gel, Garnier Fructis Wet Shine Gel. Condish: Alberto V05 Free Me Fresia, Tresemme' Flawless Curls, LVPNG, Neutrogena Triple Moisture. Shampoo: Tresemme' Flawless Curls. Silicone Serum: Whatever is on sale, but I don't leave home without it.

@SexxyCaramel80: I've read that as well. I mean, if that happened to me, I honestly wouldn't mind. But I guess if you have a nice natural pattern & like your waves/curls, then it would be kind of disheartening. I think maybe the people that it happened to may have applied too much, saturating the hair too heavily. I would just be sparing, since you can always use more the following weekend or whenever. I feel that's probably the best way to do it.

@SexxyCaramel80 I've dozens of BKTS and even with the strongest treatment my hair was not permanatly straightened. Why? Because I have virgin 4a hair. no color. While I think it is possible for bkts to straighten hair, I think it depends on the person's hair texture/condition.

Those of you that are concerned you can't wait around for a review you like because that person is not you. You have to do the treatment on your hair so you can really . The reviews on amazon have been really good, so I didn't have a problem doing this treatment on my sister's 4a jet black curls. Just do a strand test/small section. See how this section of hair reacts over the course of the next 4 weeks, and THEN apply to your whole head if you like it.

I bought one of these kits but haven't used it yet. After reading your results though I'm doing it tomorrow!

I last did a Softliss BKT back in October. It has worn off now and I definitely can tell it.

Okay as I bad as I want to do the Organix today I have to wait until Friday.

If you could rinse your immediately it would be a snap but having to wait 48 hours- I'm afraid to go to school with this stuff in my hair. I don't want people to think I don't shower or something. LOL

So Friday it is!

This stuff barely shows in your hair... it's fine to go to school with. If you don't wear gloves, you will have orange palms and brown stuff in your nails. No need to be worried about the burnt smell because this stuff smells yummy.

OK so it didn't work for me. The thing about my hair is that it just doesn't straighten. My hair was coated with this stuff and it still didn't work. As soon as the flat iron leaves the tip of my hair, it starts reverting. It's amazing. I tried 20 passes on one section of my hair (I was desperate) but it's so thick that it didn't make a difference and amazingly, there's no heat damage. On the second day, I broke out my instyler and my hair laughed at it. The kinks wont budge.

If you can manage to keep your hair straight than you should be fine. My friends suggested that I start heat training my hair because it's just ridiculous. Long story short, make sure you can keep your hair straight for 3 days.

We are all natural 4as.

I've never heard of hair that can't straighten. Everyone in my family comes to me for flat ironing and such because I straighten anyone's hair, so SOMETHING must be wrong in how your applied this stuff. Can you detail your process?

Heat training is another word for heat damage, so I don't quite know how much I like that idea.

Organix bkt can and does leave some white dandruff looking flakes, so just brush it out and you'll be fine.
Yeah I just did a search on heat training and it's exactly what you said. Heat damage.

I use the correct one. It was a creamy color and I checked the name a few times. It came in a packet that I had to rip open. The problem is that my hair isn't only 4a. My friend (naturally curly) once told me that my hair couldn't be that bad. I let her flat iron it and half way through, she said "lets wash it out.. it wont stay straight!" lol

I applied the product and combed it through. I left it in for half an hour and then blow dried my hair with the product still in. I than started flat ironing.

I washed my hair a few mins ago and I can't complain. I can put a comb through my hair no problem. If I would have left it in for an extra day than it would've been better I guess. I have pics!


the curly hair pics are my results. I'll post my before later. The pic with my hair sticking up is a blowout. My hair wouldn't stay flat to save my life lol. The pic with my 'straight' hair is about an hour after straightening the second day. Not bad.

Hi! I would like to know which bkt that works best. Does QOD work better on natural hair than Organix or do you get same result? Did your curlpattern change after BKT, if so, what was it before and what is it now. How often do you use bkt?
Alright I applied the Organix treatment today and I have stick straight hair as of right now. I found it pretty easy to apply, dry, then straighten. My flat iron goes to 410 so I'm hoping that's hot enough. I went over each section at least 7 times. The whole process took about 2 hours for me.

I'm not necessarily as concerned with having a weaker curl pattern as I am in eliminating frizz.

I'll report back in 2 days.

I am definitely thinking about using this product since it is so much more cost effective than the QOD I have been using.

But I do have a question. Can someone tell me how it is suppose to be applied? Do you have to use the brush and bowl method? I am trying to figure out if I will need a friend to help me apply it.
I didnt use the gloves either, and i found that the best way to apply it is it just dab a dot on your finger and wipe it down your 2 in section of hair, then to take the smaller side of your comb(where the teeth are closer together) to comb it through your section. And if you need alittle more for the ends then use alittle more.

I did my hair last night by myself. Blow drying took forever (i never blow dry my hair), I'm still waiting to wash it out! But from last night to today it has stayed pretty straight. It seemed like my hair was more frizzy through the process though.
I so can't wait to try this! I'm camping out this weekend so I can't do it then.

I flat ironed my hair this week and curled the ends with my 3" curling iron. My husband told me he likes my hair best with a 2b pattern. I so hope this can take my 3a and relax it some.

Quick question....

Do you have to iron your ends straight? Or could I iron them slightly curled under?
i did a strand test yesterday & i like the results so far. i hope i used enough product. my hair came out very soft and very straight. once i wash this out & see how my hair feels i will do my whole head.
