Healthy should be the top priority for your hair no matter what you choose to do with it. Whether your rocking dreads, braids, a flat iron, an afro, a blow dry, a relaxer or anything in between. Whatever style you choose (and that is your choice completely) you want to keep your hair feeling and looking healthy. Even if you never use straighteners or heat on your hair you still want to deep condition it and keep the scalp hydrated. If you use flat irons, curling irons or blow dryers to style your hair, you should invest in some heat protection products to protect the hair shaft and condition regularly. And if you relax you should find a gentle product that doesn’t use harsh chemicals. And the best product that fits that bill in my opinion is Phytospecific Phytorelaxer ($60, sephora.com).
The Phytospecific Phytorelaxer is a revolutionary, gentle, hydroxide-free relaxing treatment. The egg- and soy-based formula is odorless and does not contain lye. Many celebrities and those in the know use this product to achieve straight hair that isn’t lifeless. Phytorelaxer is easy to use and provides step by step instructions to apply the product at home. Though it’s a little pricey for those of us who are used to super cheap at home relaxers this product really delivers on its promises. Whether you use Index 1 for Delicate/Thin Hair or Index 2 for Normal, Thick, Coarse Hair, your hair will be left soft and smooth. Phytorelaxer won’t get your hair stick straight instead it gets it straight but leaves the volume, body and life that healthy hair needs. It only takes one treatment to notice why this is one of the most popular products out now.
Phytorelaxer is a straitening treatment and even though it doesn’t contain lye, hydroxide, parabens or phthalates, it is a process and you should follow the directions and condition your hair regularly. Relaxing your hair can be incredibly drying, but Phtyorelaxer makes sure that your hair stays conditioned through the process. So if you relax your hair or are thinking about doing it in the future, this is a must-try product. If you don’t believe read all the reviews for it and ask your stylist about it. And remember no matter what you decide to do with your hair, beautiful hair is healthy hair.
