Hello everyone, I have naturally curly, like straw curls hair. I typically don't relax it unless its a comb through for a hairstyle. About 10 weeks ago I cut it very short and the beautician put Mizani for sensitive scalp in it just to retain the straight hairstyle for a moment. I just wanted her to comb the relaxer through just to kill the frizz and relax the curls a little because I do love wearing my natural hair often. Well, my hair is still born straight and its beginning to depress me. How long does this crap last? Or should I cut it all off and start over? I can attest to one thing, this perm is great if you want your hair straight for a long period of yime. Help please!!!!

Mizani for Sensitive Scalp is a RELAXER. I don't care how they spell it (http://www.mizani-usa.com/default.aspx?m=9&p=5064&rid=100)on their site. (I'm ticked off at them. Not you.)

Hence the effects are permanent.

If you want to chop it now, you can. Or, you can choose to transition. The choice is yours.

Unfortunately, relaxers are permanent so the straightened hair will never be naturally curly again. If you want to get rid of the perm, you'll have to cut it.

I agree with all of the above. If you would like your curls back, you're going to have to grow it out. You can try transitioning, or you can just cut it now :) Since it's a relaxer, your curls will never return to the part of your hair that had the chemical in it. Hope this helps :)

WAit you relaxed your hair and now you're wondering why it's not curly? I'm confused.

Anyway, this isn't what this site is about, we do not support use of chemicals or heat for any purpose. I say this not to just quote rules, but to say that to me some of the things you said in your original post sound contradictory. We're about wearing hair 100% natural so if that's what you're trying to do then we're here to help. But if you're still experimenting on ways to alter the texture of your hair then we're not the spot for that.

In any event, chemicals treatments are permanent - even the quick comb throughs - so once it's in your hair it's there until you either grow or cut it out. If you had some comb through still in your hair and then she did this Mizani treatment that's probably why your curls just relaxed all the way out cos your hair has had overlapping processes at this point. It was a chemical double service basically.

^Really, Mizani?? Tryna to be slick.

OP: You'd mentioned that your hair is very short. Go on ahead and cut again to start over.
