          After 1st-time use for touch-up, which was professionally applied, (I was concerned about breakage after reading reviews) my thick, Afro-textured hair reverted after 5 weeks. Thus, I switched to Index 2. No problems since.

            Had no breakage, even though this was a touch-up, over traditionally relaxed strands! Whew! Was professionally applied. Index 1 was too mild for my thickish, Type 4a hair. Reviews as to what was the appropriate index were confusing. Results have lasted only 5 weeks, vs. 10 weeks with traditional relaxer.

            Comments about PHYTO SPECIFIC Phytorelaxer Index 1:

            I have been using relaxers for 20 years. I switched to Phyto a year ago and will never go back. It's so much more better for my hair than the others.... And I have tried them all. I did, however, switch to Index 2 one time but it made my hair too straight. It didn't damage it but it just should not be done... For me anyway. After 20 years of relaxing, being bone straight is not important Anymore. If I want bone straight, I can flat iron it.

            I purchase this and bring it to my hairdresser. I would never attempt this myself.

                Yes, Index 1 is great for relaxing curls if you don't want it your hair completely straight. It is also recommended for finer hair textures as well. Please also see the Phytospecific Relaxer Index 1 product page for all relaxer "Do's & Don'ts" to make sure your hair meets all other relaxer requirements before using.

            • Q:

              Can index 1 relaxer be used on 3a hair? I am white and have very soft and flowy hair, but its extremely frizzy and huge (I'm talking 3 bottles of hair dye when I have to dye my whole head) and I want to eliminate the frizz without losing the curls... will this work?

                A:

                Hi Kendall, Can you clarify what you mean by 3a? If you are referring to hair color that you use that is level 3 Ash, we would need to know if you are using deposit only or lightening the hair to level 3 and what kind of product you are using. If it is a box color, it may contain metallic dye and that will not work with our relaxer. Hope this helps!
                Our best,
                PHYTO Paris

                A:

                Thanks for your question! :-) We reached out to Phyto directly to obtain a more detailed answer, and here's what we found out:

                You CANNOT apply the Phyto Specific Phytorelaxer Index 1 on previously colored hair that is lifted more than 2 levels higher than the natural level or relaxed hair that has been bleached.

                But permanent color can be applied 7-10 days AFTER using the Phyto Specific Phytorelaxer Index 1, paying close attention to the application and porosity of the hair. We don't usually recommend at-home color; we recommend visiting your nearest Ulta Beauty salon for professional color application.

                We hope this helps!
