    I am going to hang out here for more reviews. I may try this on my 2 thick haired BSL daughters...they want to straighten their hair this year.

    Thank you sooo much I ordered the kit and I’m looking forward to trying it. Was there a reason you did the protein treatments, i.e.; damage or loss of hair?

    I used the protein because I’m just still following my normal hair routine and seeing how my hair responds now. I usually use light-medium protein weekly and heavy protein monthly. I’ve noticed my hair doesn’t like the heavy leave-in creams and Shea butter mixes right now. It likes the light weight leave-ins.

    Sooo I applied this treatment today. My hair has always been super prone to reversion and I think it's 90 degrees outside today. My flat iron puffed up immediately and looks like a blow dry. A little disappointed, but I wouldn't mind if I could put my hair in a bun or ponytail. I can't for 3 days, so I'll be rocking a semi-afro for the next 3 days.

    Hopefully when I wash it next there will be some curl loosening so I can tell if this did anything. I flat ironed with 3 passes per section on 450.

    I'm sorry you didn't get the results you wanted. Do you think you used enough product on your hair? When I did my initial strand test, I didn't use that much product and it wasn't as loose as it is now. For the hair releasing lotion, did you sit under a dryer or a steamer? I sat under a steamer for that step. I also ran the flat iron down my hair slowly. What type of flat iron did you use, ceramic or titanium? I read that titanium flat irons give better results but I used the ceramic Sedu 1.5 inch original on the length and a ceramic FHI EPS 1 inch on the roots.

    It's alright; I may have been expecting a bit too much. If it's hot enough for me to be sweating as I'm sitting down flat ironing there's only so much a product can do.

    I definitely used enough product. I have a thick head of hair and I wound up using like 6 of the 8 oz of the releasing lotion. Did small sections and brushed through. I used a dryer and a ceramic flat iron because that's all I have currently but I may invest in a titanium iron.

    I'm pretty sure the treatment did something because I was able to rinse it out of my hair without using sections (and I always have to do my hair in sections).

    Regardless my hair is in a braid now because it was way too hot to keep it out and it's very soft and manageable. Hopefully my hair doesn't kink too badly since I'm not following the 'wear it down for 3 days' instructions anymore.

    I used about 1.75 oz of the releasing lotion. I wonder did you over saturate your hair?

    Maybe that was the problem. I found it really hard to get every small section like they said to with only 2 oz. I could see the product on every section after I applied it. Maybe that was too much?

    I think you used too much product. I used a tint applicator brush & a bowl. For every section, I applied a small amount towards the roots & mid-section like doing a relaxer retouch, combed the product down the length, & also used my fingers to work it in. At first I didn’t think 2 oz would be enough, but it was.

    Thanks for letting me know! I'll try applying that way next time.

    So update: The 72 hours are up and I went to the beach (now open in my country). My hair stayed straight for a long time despite being soaking wet with saltwater.

    I came home and washed it with sulfate-free shampoo and my hair has definitely loosened. I absolutely love it. It's gone from 4 b to 3a (?) in the front and from tight 4c to like 4a/3c in the back. Importantly, it looks even/natural all over.

    I was able to wash my hair in 2 loose sections versus 10 twists. I used way less product. I put in some leave-in conditioner and a tiny bit of gel and I'm letting my hair air dry in a turban towel to try a wash and go for tomorrow.

    I will 1000% do this again.

    Would anyone happen to know if houseofbeautyworld dot com is a reputable Place to order this from? I’m ready to give this a shot.
    And would the flat iron make a difference? I’ve never used one and don’t own one.

    Actionbeautysupply.com is associated with the place I bought it from, which is Paul’s Beauty Warehouse. Avlon says titanium irons give better results but I know they get hotter than ceramic. I have a titanium flat iron but I use it on lower settings than my ceramic irons because I don’t want to risk heat damage.

    I’m glad you’re liking your results. I find that I need much less conditioner & leave in products now.

    Thanks! I’m going to get my sister to help me with this at the end of July. She volunteered the use of her Chi & her experiences hands. My first time using a flat iron probably shouldn’t be something like this.
