I've only used this product once, so far. I have coarse and resistant hair, but a sensitive scalp. First of all, Natural-Laxer MIX smells positively edible, which is not a bad thing at all. If you've used chemical relaxers, you know the actual relaxer smells pretty bad. On that score alone, Natural-Laxer MIX is a vast improvement. Mixing the relaxer was a bit of a challenge, but it is important to stick with it until it becomes the right consistency. My brother applied it to my hair for me, and he had no problems, except in one area. I'll put it this way: if I hadn't cut my hair a few months ago, there would not have been enough relaxer to completely cover my hair. If you have more than two inches of hair on your head, buy more than one jar per application. Having a sensitive scalp, it was wonderful not to feel burning during the relaxer application. Score another one for Natural-Laxer MIX. The rest of the steps were gravy. In fact, I am considering putting in the rest of my relaxers myself. As for the results, I did notice slight relaxing of my natural curl pattern, which is exactly what I expected. No miracles, but an improvement. My hair is softer, which I love, since my hair has never been soft. I do wonder how my hair would have turned out if I had been able to use a heat cap. Unfortunately, purchasing one was cost-prohibitive. At any rate, I am satisfied with Natural-Laxer MIX. look forward to seeing how subsequent use will improve my hair. One suggestion though: if able, buy the heat cap. I suspect if I had been able to purchase one, I would have been astounded by the results. As it is, I had to save up just to buy three jars of the relaxer (which is recommended). In my current financial situation, I doubt I'll be able to buy Natural-Laxer MIX as often as I'd like (or as recommended), but I'll buy it when I can.
