Please do not use the new product Easystraight. My hair has been wrecked and I feel compeled to warn others. Search other discussion boards and you will see similar results. You will not find a single good review.

Count me in has another Easystraight disaster. I am still kicking myself for believing the imformation advertised on the box about how it is so easy and safe to use, I followed the directions to a T and like others I also rinsed it out earlier. I had to have about 3 inches cut off of my hair and also had to pay for a deep conditioning treatment and my hair is still fried, I will probably have to wear a bandana or scarf for quite a while and continue to have dead hair cut away, my hair length was almost midway down my back but now it is up to my shoulders and will probably have to have more cut off, I just want to cry everytime I look into the mirror now. Please spread the word and do not use this product, the results cause nothing but heartache.

Have either of you thought about calling the Better Business Bureau or the FDA to report this product??Sounds like it needs to be pulled off the shelves

Hi again, Actually I did go to both the FDA and BBB web sites, with the FDA you have to write a letter explaining your problem via snail mail with matters concerning cosmetics, etc., and with the BBB they recommend that you try to notify the company that makes the product first. From what I read on another post with the link to a story about the woman who is an assistant for Cosmogirl magazine, I am curious has to how they will respond to a complaint. I am going to try and do a search on the New York Post/Cosmogirl story and see if there are any follow ups.

I did receive a refund from the Walgreens where I purchased the Easystraight, they were very apologetic and 2 of the women in the cosmetics dept. said they will refuse to sell it but they unfortunetly can't make the decision to pull it off the shelves.

If you ever have a serious complaint about a product, here is a short governmental form to fill out so that the makers will be responsible for their products and so that you can get the word out. Go here: http://www.consumeraffairs.com/php/a_report.php

Thanks so much for the link Californian, I just sent them an email and I will be sure to post any information I receive. I just really want to get the word out on this stuff so hopefully no one else will have to go through what I am right now, just tried a highly recommended Keratin conditioner in hopes it might tame my hair, no luck
Thanks again though.

Thanks again though. You're very welcome. One time I dyed my hair and it turned out green so I kind of know how you feel. It was an expensive mistake.How about a cute, short do for you? Get a tan, play up your rosey cheeks and hook on some big, cute earrings and look stylish while you repair your hair. What do you think? You know it will be much easier to comb out after a ride on your Harley!

I'm thinking of something like any of the following. Summer is here, after all!

I wish more people like you would go through "all the crap of registering" since it makes this site even funner, more enlightening and diverse.
In that case, Viva LA 'CRAP'!!!
