My hair liked it but my scalp didn’t
I tried this relaxer for the first time recently and as far as the end result goes, my hair came out very nice. HOWEVER, this relaxer burned really bad! It burned my scalp, my neck, and my ears even though I put vaseline on those areas to help protect my skin. So I don’t think I’ll be using this relaxer again because I’ve used other relaxers that do just as good of a job that don’t burn as bad (and are cheaper).
I purchased this relaxer and I must tell you, I love this product. I previously purchased the mizani butter blend medium/normal 30oz and my hair was not processed at all after using three different times. I was extremely disappointed in mizani. I have always heard negative things about buying large tub of relaxer, but I like to prove things for myself which led me to buy the 30oz and need I say, I was not happy with results. I decided to give Mizani another try so I bought the individual sensitive scalp single application to see if I would have any better results. To my surprise, my hair was fully relaxed and no burns. I am so thrilled with the results. Now I will be buying the 4 packs relaxer kit. I will be sticking with this from now on. My hair was very silky to the touch. Love, love love it.
great, gentle, and effective
This relaxer is EXCELLENT for the price. I’d rather do it at home than trust my hair to a salon. This product was able to effectively relax my hair and though it did tingle a little bit, it didn’t burn my scalp. Even with a high quality product such as this, it’s really important to deep condition after rinsing out the relaxer and using a neutralizing shampoo. I put a plastic cap on my head and let the conditioner sit in my hair for 15 minutes. After my hair dried, I applied argon oil and Mizani butter rich hairdress (B002EQZ9OU
I LOVE IT!!!!!
This made my hair so soft and I had no breakage or shedding. I have never had soft hair after relaxing, this product is amazing and I will never relax with anything else.
Words Can’t Explain….Love It!
I have a very short hair cut w/ a tapered back & this was my first time giving myself a touch-up @ home (yesterday). I hesitated before doing the touch-up because I consistently work out & I’ve also been scratching my scalp like crazy this entire week and I know that these activities can make the scalp susceptible to burning. An hour or two before the touch-up, I sprayed my scalp w/ hairspray. My scalp didn’t even tingle w/ Mizani & I was able to let the product sit in my hair for the allotted time. My hair is gorgeous, silky smooth & smells heavenly. Let’s just say that my hair stylist will hardly be seeing me from now on. Oh, and because of my hair cut I didn’t put much of a dent in the product & so I’ll be able to use it at least two or three more times even though it’s a single application kit.
So Far So Great!!
For the past month, I’ve been doing research for hours on end trying to find a better relaxer for women of color. One that is good for color treated hair, conditions, strengthens, helps breakage, and DOESN’T BURN.Previously, I’ve used lye relaxers such as Motions & Clairol Texture Tones. Both of them burned like hell. So I switched to no-lye ORS Olive Oil for a year then Optimum Anti-Breakage for a year. The Olive Oil was ok but after the first couple weeks, my hair would be dry/hard. The Optimum burned my edges and I didn’t see any progress in strengthen or stopping my breakage.My choices were between Mizani Butter Blend Sensitive Scalp and Affirm Fiberguard. I chose Mizani because it was the only one I could find in my local beauty supply store. I was a little skeptical with ordering it online plus the shipping costs are outrageous. The relaxer already costs a little more than the ones in the box. However, I am TOTALLY HAPPY with the Mizani. I love the way it makes my hair feel soft & light. It got my hair straighter than expected based on other reviews I’ve read. And most importantly IT DIDN’T BURN. This relaxer doesn’t come with the little neutralizing shampoos & conditioners like the box perms. But it’s not a big deal. Plus I don’t think it’s necessary to use the Mizani Pre-Treatment/Shampoos/Conditioners. They’re a little too pricey to me. I used ORS Olive Oil neutralizing shampoo with another brand conditioner & it worked out perfect. Mizani will be my new relaxer from now on…
I don’t know what it is about Mizani products but they are just the best. I have used Organix Relaxer in the past and it was good but Mizani leaves my hair so smooth whereas the other relaxers I’ve used would feel like my hair got straight but hard. So I will only use Mizani now
Rhelaxer for Life
I’ve been using box relaxer kits for over 25 years and I’m never going back! I just recently started having some dryness and overall difference in hair texture and even with conditioners and leave ins my hair felt over processed, eventually creating terrible split ends. A failed attempt at a Keratin treatment put my hair over the edge and I was planning on never relaxing again until I found Mizani. This Rhelaxer has left my hair soft and silky and even repaired my damage ends by sealing the cuticle, along with the neutralizing shampoo which I use for hard water protection and the moisturizing conditioner it’s all worth the price. I have thin, mildly coarse hair with 25 years worth of damage and it’s like it’s been reborn. Smells great and doesn’t burn or cause scalp damage. My new Rhelaxer for life!
