Natural Hair Relaxers

Hey Blog Fam!

I am amazed at times when I receive phone calls from women asking various questions concerning hair care. I don't even charge a fee for my knowledge that I readily offer to callers, even when I get those occasional callers who are over-zealous. One call just took me back and it went a little like this.

Caller: Hello Do you carry ____ _____ Natural Hair Relaxer by _____ ____?
Me: Um I am sorry we do not carry ANY chemicals that may permanently alter your hair.

Well, in my 9 years of being natural I have seen and heard of many companies boasting their claims of natural products that offer hair relaxing capabilities. Judging from a couple of my previous clients who have tried those so called natural hair relaxers I will say there is no such thing as a natural product that permanently straightens your hair. Sorry ladies! I have also researched the internet and let me tell you, there are pages upon pages of so called natural products that straighten the hair. I even saw one that came close but it requires you keep this paste in your hair for 3 hours or more without heat. With the heat it is about 90 minutes. What!?!? That in my mind doesn't register as natural. I also read the ingredients and it was very vague. Something didn't sit right in my gut about the product. They also have rave reviews and not one person who was the least bit unsatisfied. My mother always told me if something appears to be too good to be true it probably is.
