Chime Edwards recently posted a video titled “My TMS experience 1 year later”. In the video she talks about the texture damage she sustained after using the popular Texture Management System created and marketed by Beautiful Textures.
I remember when this product launched, it was a big deal because the company promised the best of both worlds. You could get silky straight hair that lasted up to 6 weeks and with a simple clarify you would have your curls back sans heat damage.
Now women can have the hair versatility they want without harsh chemicals and without permanently altering their curl pattern.
Whatever your hair texture – curly, kinky*-coily, wavy or frizzy – the Reversible™ Straightening Texture Manageability™ System (TMS) allows you to go from natural curls to straight styles and back again. For relaxed hair, the system extends the time between relaxer new-growth applications.
They gave women a solution to what they considered was a problem because as you know if you straighten your hair and the weather has an attitude that day, your hair may or may not poof within the hour regardless of what you use within your straightening process.
There are things you can do to prevent reversion, maybe use a product that reflects moisture rather than attract it, you can keep your hair wrapped, or you can re-flat iron* your hair with a prayer that you do not sustain damage.
The point is, for your hair to remain silky “relaxer straight” for that long and not behave like it normally would something has to change in the molecular structure of the strand, I do not care what they say.
According to the brand they do not have any ‘harsh chemicals’ in the product but after extensive research we have come to realize that term “harsh” can be relative, it just depends on who you are talking to. This is what the brand said:
The secret is the Inner-Active™ Leave-In Conditioner*, which is infused with essential oils*, natural butters* and amino acids, and has no harsh chemicals. The Inner Active™ leave-in conditioner* penetrates the hair, causing it to elongate and soften while making it easier to detangle. Once the detangling process is complete, the hair is blow-dried and flat ironed, creating beautifully straight, touchably soft hair with unmatched body, movement and shine – all in a fraction of the time of most traditional straightening methods.
