I like the ORS Olive Oil Relaxer, very gentle on the scalp. I use regular strength, and it works well for me.

^^^ I was thinking about that too....or maybe gentle treatment....that should be able to work for all hair types too, shouldn't it? :confused:

Or even just weakening a regular relaxer with oils mixed in might help....

I wish I could tell you. How fine is your hair? Does it really need a relaxer? Sometimes we really shouldnt need to.

I started using Hawaiian Silky no mix no lye. It's made of sodium lithium hydroxide or something like that. It makes the hair very soft and silky, but sometimes it can leave you a tiny bit under processed. It's not as strong as traditional no lye, but the way my hair feels when I use it is a beautiful thing!

If your hair is very thin I would suggest texlaxing, or using some heat protectant and flat iron the hair lightly. Thin hair is only going to get thinner by relaxing

No, no no. Is better not to wash your hair between 4 or 5 days before your relaxer, that`s because your scalp will be too sensitive and the relaxer will itch you.

Well my hair is very fine too, so i use Organic ROOT Stimulator™ Oiive Oil Relaxer Kit.

Hi there...

The best 2 relaxers that I can recommend are:

Phyto and Soft & Beautiful Botanicals

I have fine hair and those 2 relaxers does a great job.

my personal favorite is Dark & Lovely's Mild for color treated hair. That relaxer is very gentle and doesn't cause alot of breakage or dryness.

I have used this relaxer since 2002; due to dying my hair either auburn or blue-black. It is very effective. Additionally, it has "grown" my hair out while I enjoyed the benefit of permanent hair color.

Hope this helps

When I use to relax, my mum used Bantu and would put some extra virgin olive oil in it to make it really nice. My hair was fine as well.

Revlon Mild. I used this when I had relaxed hair. My hair was fine when I was a teen and this did just fine.
