Creme of Nature with Argan Oil No-Lye Relaxer Kit
I used Crème of Nature years ago and decided to give this product a try because of the ingredient argan oil.
The smell was not a strong or stinky as some perms and the shampoo and conditioner were really nice. Although, the perm was somewhat irritating to my skin and scalp. Some burning within the first 5 to 10 minutes, so I had to remove it much sooner that the 20 minute time limit for medium hair.
Overall, this product did what it states, but you really need to be sure that you use a good base on your scalp prior to use or it will definitely burn.

I love this relaxer! IIt made my hair soft and manageable. No shedding or breaking off. I am 45 with stuburn grey to straighten and this did the trick w/o burning my scalp. My scalp is sensitive, so I can't use a relaxer that can only be left in 5 min before it burns. I think you will be pleased with the results of this product.

Good Relaxer but...
I love the idea of a relaxer with Argan Oil for softness and moisture, but I'm a little disappointed with this one. Don't get me wrong I love this product, but I have a couple of issues with it.
Issue 1: No color neutralizing shampoo. Although I know personally when all traces of the relaxer are gone, but what about those who aren't sure? It's a little bit unnerving when washing your hair (or someone else's) out with the neutralizing shampoo and there's no way to tell.
Issue 2: Hair still feels hard after shampooing. Previously I used Optimum Care Salon Collection Relaxer (you can read that review also) and as soon as I applied the neutralizing shampoo and rinsed, my hair immediately felt soft. I had to re-wash my hair with Creme of Nature Ultra Moisturizing Shampoo just to soften my hair a little bit (which is what I normally don't do after washing my relaxer and neutralizer out).
Other than those 2 issues, I still love the product. I applied my Argan Oil Foaming Wrap Lotion after completing the process and my hair has shine and moisture that I knew it would have. I would recommend this product but just make sure to have a great moisture shampoo to take the hardness out.

Best Relaxer I have Ever Tried Myself
Just purchased this relaxer today. Used it today and was amazed at my results. It got my edges super straight and looks amazing. I have a full head of beautiful gray hair and have found other relaxers falling short on making my hair straight, soft, shiny and silky. Creme of Nature Relaxer with the Argan Oil is my new best friend. I was happy with Silk Elements but after a couple of years, it does not get the job done anymore.
I was so disappointed in the products of today until now. I have been using the Argan Oil already for a few months and when I saw that Creme of Nature has it included in this new relaxer, I decided to give it a try and was blown away.
Thanks for such an excellent product!
