The reason why I am switching relaxers.

I'd like to showcase a comment left on my recent post about adding Linange neutralizing conditioner (and possibly the relaxer) on my wish list.  Well,  I'd like to thank to the anonymous reader who shared this amazing feedback:

I switched stylists a year ago and my new stylist uses Lineage. It wasn't until this switch that I realized what my hair is supposed to feel like. I was previously relaxed with Mizani ButterBlends and thought that everyone has to accept a certain amount of dryness, etc. It wasn't until I went to the new stylist and could feel the difference between my newly relaxed hair with Lineage & the old hair, that I realized Mizani was giving me high porosity hair. Lineage is great, my hair holds moisture 10x better, likes waaaayyy more products (before my hair only liked 1 conditioner) and doesn't need protein every week. You should definitely check out their products.

Seriously I haven't heard any negative feedback about Linange.  Anon's feedback has pretty much sealed the deal for me.  I am officially trying out a new relaxer next touchup.  The last time I veered from Affirm was with Phytospecific relaxer.  Long story short, it didn't work out well for me.  I'm hoping this will be a much better experience and I look forward to it.

  1. Thanks for mentioning that Mizani BB leaves the hair very porous. I was using it for years and whilst I loved that it left my hair with body, no matter how often I deep conditioned it would always be 'dry' according to my stylist.

    I may consider making the switch!

  2. haha, that anonymous commenter was ME! I hope you have as great of an experience as I did with Lineage. I can't wait to read your review once you try it.

    On a side note - I'm almost done growing out the old relaxer, mostly due to a number of serious trims I had in the last year (MAJOR setback that wasn't relaxer related). My Mizani ends are bushy and dry. Can't wait until they are gone. The rest of my hair stays pretty soft longer that I sometimes *whispers* don't moisturize every day. ::gasp::
