My hair has done well with a chemical relaxer for over 20 years. I'm a busy grandmother, entrepreneur and recently added "college student" to my repertoire, so I will never join the natural hair trend. I simply don't have the time or patience it takes to keep natural hair beautiful, but thanks to this gel, I only relax every 12-15 weeks, which amounts to 3-4x per year!
This will not give you the straightness of a chemical relaxer after one application but works over time. It keeps the new growth healthy, strong and under control,while providing much needed conditioning to the relaxed hair. With a blow dryer or flat iron, you can't tell any difference, until you wash it and see the new growth has a wave pattern and the ends are straight.
The product really is all natural except for a few preservatives. Most "natural" claims have the natural ingredients listed last which is an indication there's very small amounts. The powder form mixed with the conditioner is better, but the gel is more convenient.
Your hair will be stronger, healthier, thicker with less breakage and less breakage means visible hair growth.
I honestly do not think that it tamed anything but my hair feels healthier than it ever has
I have been using this product on and off on my hair and my daughter's hair. I really like how it makes our hair grow and at the same time strengthens it. My daughter has long wavy hair that would tangle up really bad after washing it. After using Herbal Tame it would be easy to comb out and manage. My hair is a different story, thick and course but herbal tame helps it to be manageable and look better after blow drying and flat ironing. We will definitely continue to use this product. I just can't afford to get it as often as I would like. I try to buy a supply of it when I was get the buy one get one half off deal or buy three products and get one free--something like that. Been a while since I've seen those deals.
This natural relaxer is the best product for black hair that I have ever used! I gave up using a chemical relaxer and I was in search of something that would allow me to manage my hair and help it grow. This product is it! It doesn't "straighten" the hair but, it does relax the cuticle of the hair so that your natural hair texture grows in. I love it!
I have used this product--Herbal Tame in the past and liked how it did on my hair. I will continue to use this product in the future. This product gives immediate results. I use it in between my perms to avoid hair breakage.
