You Should Know About…

Kinky, curly, and coiled women the world over are going au naturel , and ladies, I fully support the movement! But for those who still relax their hair, you should know about…

PhytoSpecific Relaxer System! This French beauty company uses plant-based extracts like egg and soya to help you achieve a sleek and straight look (see the FAQ here http://phytospecific.com/faq.html) I’ve been using it for the last six months, and gurl, lemme tell ya (*New Orleans accent inserted here*). Unlike those other relaxers which claim to be “no-lye”, PhytoSpecific is odorless and doesn’t cause burns! You can buy PhytoSpecific at Sephora (www.sephora.com) and BeautyBay, a British online beauty supply store (www.beautybay.com). Its a welcome alternative from the Brazilian and Japanese keratin straighteners, which contain formaldehyde (eeew!) and will make your hair brittle if used too often.
