    "Ingredients:
    Patented Curlaway Curl Relaxer contains naturally-derived aqueous acetic acid (pH lowering agent) with PEG 400 monostearate (emulsifier) d-panthenol, MSM (both conditioners), grapeseed oil (moisturizer) and fragrances."

    isn't acetic acid corrosive?
    I put some coins in vinegar once, it's definitely corrosive.


    And the website says "A non-alkaline, low-pH gel, Curlaway can be applied to dyed or previously-relaxed hair without causing breakage"

    But according to chemindustry.ru,
    low-molecular pegs like PEG 400 monostearate are made by using NaOH, KOH or Na2CO3.
    Isn't that the same stuff that's in regular relaxers?


    but I don't know, maybe it is a good product.

    Sister Blackeyes ... thanks for the info ... good looking out Sister!

    I kinda thought about using it for a second, but i am so afraid to do anything to my hair ... for fear of permanently stripping even one ounce of its naturalness away! This has been such a long journey for me, i just don't want to sabotage my own efforts!
