NOTE: This was just MY experience and everyone is different, but I know I appreciate reading others' reviews, so I try to review products as well.
As some of you may know, I have been trying out different relaxers each time I relax my hair (just to give as many brands as I can a chance). Well last night I used Affirm Fiberguard Sensitive Scalp Relaxer. I was really looking forward to this relaxer after all the good things about it, but I have to say, the results were just so-so.
- Left my hair feeling very silky and soft
- Didn't burn
- Didn't straighten very well - just left it wavy.
I'm someone who likes their hair bone straight after relaxing, so ending up with wavy hair was disappointing. You had the option of leaving it on up to 13 minutes for mild strength, 15 minutes for regular, 18 minutes for super strength. I left it on the maximum 18 minutes (I originally planned for 15 but left it on longer after it didn't seem straight), so for it to still come out wavy made me mad.
So overall, if you just want a loose curl or textlaxed hair, you might like this. But if you like bone straight hair, you might want to try something else. Funny enough, I looked up some reviews on this relaxer tonight, and apparently I'm not the only one who didn't get their hair as straight as they would have liked (again, this was with the Fiberguard Sensitive Scalp).
Next time I'm going to try Mizani. Let's hope there's better luck with that!
