Until the last 2 years, I've had a relaxer since I was four years old. (I'm now 24) Needless to say, I've tried my fair share of box perms. Especially as I got older and began caring for my own hair, I've been able to try a plethora of different products to find out what I like best. This is the worst relaxer I have EVER tried. I've had relaxers from the dollar store give me better results. The Dr. Miracle's products have been raved about since they came into the market, so I never doubted it's results. It made my hair feel so dry and brittle. Not to mention, it didn't seem to relax my new growth very well. And what WAS actually relaxed from this use didn't last very long at all. Hated it!
