Her natural hair texture looks weird. She says she doesn't use heat but I dunno. It looks kinky and stretched at the same time.

I was wondering the same thing. I'm thinking it only last from one wash to the next.

But thats still a lot longer than I've ever gotten my hair to last. Its downhill after hour one.

I think the assumption is you're not going to wash it.

even if you dont wash it.. 4-6 weeks without touching it up…? 

sweating in your sleep, warm weather, the shower, the club, etc…?

yeah, if it is heat trained like most of our hair was back in the early 1980s, it could last 4-6 weeks and you would roller set at night to keep it straight, but who the hayl wants to be out with a sweaty scalp like that? I like to wash my hair every 2-3 days and if I am extremely busy, I can keep my hair straight for a few weeks by rolling it at night but dam, i am not bout to be in these streets in people's face and hugging folks with 'old' smelling hair.

They make a spray that does this.....meh.

If I don't exercise or get my hair wet and avoid sweating my press can last about 4 weeks. I mean my roots will get puffy and the last week it might look a lil wonky but it can last that long.  I just wrap my hair every night & the last week I ain't reaching my roots bc they're big.

(Un)fortunately I can more about my waistline than straight hair.

Got em'. 

http://www.midwestscc.org/blog2/wp-content/uploads/presentations/Teamworks2012NonFormaldehydeSmoothing.pdf" rel="nofollow - - Hair Smoothing/Straightening of European and Hispanic Hair with Non-formaldehyde based Reactive Molecules,  Ali Syed, PhD., Salon Commodities, Inc.
The first generation smoothing products were based upon crosslinking hair with formaldehyde that posed severe health problems. In this study, the new reactive ingredient Glyoxyloyl Carbocysteine (and) Glyoxyloyl Amino Acids, was evaluated as straightening and smoothing agent without emitting high levels of formaldehyde during the treatment process.


Beautiful Textures: Inner-Active Leave-In Conditioner: Aqua , Glyoxyloyl Carbocysteine , Glyoxyloyl Keratin Amino Acids , Shea Butter Aminodpropyltrimonium Chloride , CyclopentaSiloxane , dimethiconol , dimethicone crosspolymer , Silanetriol , panthenol , Isopropyl Palmitate , methylchloroisothiazolinone , methylisothiazolinone 


This seems like it's the Keratin Treatment revamped with less formaldehyde. That being said, this could very well work.

Ive seen this in a lot of places since it launched, i think in Jan.
Looks like their tactic was to send free samples to a lot of vloggers with natural hair and get them to try it and review it.

Maybe they think we will find it more palatable if it is recommended by one of us.

I guess these companies need to recoup some of the money they lost from relaxers with people going natural....

hmmm i dont think i ever thought is was permanent.  i remember calling foul about them not posting their ingredients so that people can know exactly what they are putting in their hair.  i think i thought at the time that it was similar to those Brazilian keratin treatments.  i still havent checked out the ingredients but mostly because it fell off my radar.  today im thinking as long as it washes out in the next wash without permanent damage im pretty fine with it.  still dont get why you need a kit to flat iron your hair but ok.

My guess is that it is for those whose hair revert at slightest of elevated humidity.  Or those ho want to rock a straighten style longer for a day.

i have a feeling on longer hair it can last...less chance of the ends reverting...hair closer to the scalp and short hair being close to body heat will revert quicker? ....

my daughter's does.  She ain't letting nothing make that hair revert.  I gets my $45 worth!

the only reason my hair reverts quickly now days is because i no longer have done professionally and i only do soft presses.  i hard press is gonna last on my hair until it screams uncle.

Most people who press their hair seem to have permanently stretched hair. I guess that's what some of them want but...

i dont really pay that close attention attention to other ppls hair but that has never happened to me. before my texturizer i would have loved heat damage and probably wouldnt have made that move.  i know better now but stillLOL

I been using their like serum just the oily stuff and it really helps my hair it adds shine and protects it from the heat and smells good, haven't seen the shampoo and conditioner though

Yall must have some beast hair, cause my hair reverts by day 2 or 3. It'll still be stretched but it'll look more like a blow out than a flat iron.

Never had this issue, my hair stays straight for a long time. Takes about 2 months of using the cg method for my hair to fully revert back. I used a pressing comb instead of the flat iron though. You don't need a kit.

But I just wear straight weave now instead of straightening my own hair

My question after reading reviews is what's the difference between this and other similar aimed products like Organix/Orgx, Suave etc? That it's marketed to black women? Confused

My hair reverts few hours after the press/flat iron. The next day, its kindda blown dried look

Her hair looks kinda like mine did when I would get it flat ironed ever other week by a stylist who didn't BURN my hair straight. It was still thick and poofy, just poofier by the roots.

I don't know her story though. Maybe that's the way her hair grows.

I looked at the ingredients for that Tresemme 7 day keratin "kit". Similar idea. Honestly I'm more likely to try that product than this one.
