(Mizani Classic Relaxer, $24.00 Amazon.com)
Last Friday, April 3rd I rushed to the Beauty Supply Store purchased a Mizani relaxer then rushed to the hair salon to get my hair done after work. Thankfully, the salon was pretty quiet and I was able to get in and get out. I used the Mizani Classic Relaxer Sensitive Scalp and not the Mizani Butter Blend Relaxer, the difference between the two is lye. Butter Blend relaxers are lye based and the classic is no-lye. Overall, the process was very gentle I must say. If you remember my last relaxer experience with Fabulaxer, I was less than pleased because it was way to strong for my scalp. Plus, I only relaxed 8 weeks ago and I was in need of another relaxer, and you guys know I'm big on stretching at least 10-12 weeks. Anyway, back to Mizani Classic, it was great my scalp did not tingle, burn, or anything like that. My hair came out sleek, straight, and soft. I went with the sensitive scalp verison because of my last relaxer, the tingly feeling was not pleasant and I wanted to give my poor scalp a rest. I couldn't bite the bullet and pay $60 for the Phyto Relaxer, but I'm seriously considering after the wonderful RAVE review T wrote. I might have to plan my next relaxer to fall on the same time as her's so I can "sample" her leftovers!
