Hair Relaxers Vs Texturizers and Hair softeners

The beauty industry is full of different products that may be confusing for many people. One of the questions clients often ask us is what the difference is between hair relaxers and hair softeners. Hair softeners/texturizers are relatively new in the market. We thought we should try to answer this question and help our clients who like many others may be confused or just wondering.

What are hair relaxers?

If you have curly hair and want to have straight hair, then hair relaxers are the right ones for you. Hair relaxers are hair products whose objective is to straighten hair and leave no curls at all.Relaxed hair is straight with no curls.

Are hair softeners/texturizers natural products?

The simple answer is No.Just like hair relaxers, texture softeners change the texture of the hair. They do this because they contain chemicals. 

PayPal: Why we no longer offer this payment option

We are very sorry that we no longer offer PayPal as a payment option due to matters beyond our control. PayPal informed us recently that some skin care products in our store didn’t meet their terms of use and consequently withdrew their service. This is despite the said products being legal in Germany. 

As all our esteemed customers know, we work very closely with the consumer protection authorities here in Germany and have always reacted immediately in case a product was found to be unsafe in any way. We continue to do this as the safety of our customers is our utmost priority.

PayPal is an extremely popular and convenient way to pay in online stores. We sincerely apologize to our customers for the inconvenience of not being able to have this option and encourage you to use the alternative available options.
