My friend was under some kind of pressure to relax her hair. I knew it was an impossible feat especially since it took her an awful long while to finally succumb to my persuasion.
Anyways after going back and forth, she came to me for advice. That was when I remembered this product. I knew I had seen it somewhere. That night, I quickly googled it and Olori web store came to our rescue. It was delivered in less than 24 hours.
When I opened the box, I was taken aback by what I saw.
- A gentle cleansing shampoo
- A leave-in conditioner
- An anti-reversion shampoo and conditioner for maintenance
- An easy style guide and
- A pair of nylon gloves which was totally useless.
Yes, to be honest I was expecting some sort of magic potion that would straighten natural hair in seconds. Wait!…there’s something already. It’s called RELAXER!
Moving on, we picked a date to implement this experiment because we were quite skeptical but first things first, we read the guide thoroughly to avoid unwarranted mistakes or errors and to fill us in on what to expect and how to go about it. This was well detailed and very helpful. We had no problems whatsoever until I saw the steps involved.
- Apply Leave-in
- Blow dry
- Flat iron.
Anyways, long story short, I did as instructed and after hours of blow drying, flat ironing and trimming, it surprisingly came out well. Now, I’m not particularly sure the product had any effect on the flat ironing because it was my first time. All I know is, it was quite easy and didn’t require any strength or force. I just had to go over the hair severally to make it look decent enough.
Fast forward to 24 hours later, the hair reverted back to its natural state. Now, my friend didn’t touch or do anything funny to her hair. She couldn’t even moisturize because of the fear that it might revert sooner than expected. Lo and behold, it did just that.
The first time I saw this product, I didn’t think we needed to apply heat. To be honest, it was a total waste of money. I might as well flat ironed her hair with Shea butter or a heat protectant and it would have fine. I’m definitely not purchasing this product and I don’t recommend it. I mean if you’re gonna be using heat, what the is the point?
