I have used it several times in the past, the last time I think being 2009. Don't get hung up on the "natural" or "different" aspect of the ingredients. A lot of that is great PR
. It's a relaxer pure and simple.
My experience with Phyto was no different than any other relaxer on the market. It straightened the same way and burned my scalp the same way. It has an odor to it. I didn't find it overwhelming but it definitely had a hint of a chemical experiment. It retails for about 60 bucks in the US and about half the price if you're in Europe.
I used the lower level one because my hair is fine and it did its job. My hair was straight but not bone straight. Nonetheless, that didn't halt my hair's loss of elasticity.
If you've stopped relaxing out of concern for your hair's health, then Phyto isn't
going to be a magical answer.
I hope this helps you in making an informed choice.
