so with this relaxer i relaxed with profectiv my trusty relaxer, it leaves my hair bone straight and lay my edges down very flat. with a silky feeling , i can never worry about chemical burn or being over processed or under-processed. I have been using this perm for 4 years now. I will plan my next relaxer to be every 10 weeks at the most. I was scared when i relaxer because i had my mom do a corrective relax and straight out my entire hair. i experienced a bit of shedding but after using my Aphogee products everything was smooth. I can't wait for Sept. I have a wedding to attend and hopefully I can be BSB length. maybe buy some flexi rods or curlformers and do a curly hair style. Bangs are a option also.
