After 5 yrs of growing out my naturally curly hair, I was quite reluctant to get another relaxer, since many of my at-home experiences resulted in hair loss and thinning. Since I'm Dominican, my hair isn't nappy, but the curls tend to shrink up after it dries. After my hair dries it gets very tangled, and the detangling process (even with tons of conditioner) results in hair loss. I didnt want my hair to be straight, but just to open up my curls. Before I went on my trip to Miami I decided to go through w/my relaxer (humidity is a b**** on the hair). After Rhonda was done with me, hurricane Katrina didn't even phase my hair! She's great & knows what she's doing. I'm able to wear the wet look, and am no longer a slave to my straightening iron.
Pros: professional care, great environment, the best results
Cons: slightly pricey$$$, bring change4 meter, recommend strand test
