I bought this relaxer and neutralizing shampoo about March/April of last year. I was in Georgia and heat heat and humidity were getting to my head man. Working with the two textures was getting difficult. I thought I was going to relax but then I thought about all the time I already spent transitioning and changed my mind. I put it at the back of my bathroom cupboard, moved back to New York and it's been on my dresser for months. I barely notice it. I have absolutely no urge to relax.
